Saint-Tropez is famous for its chic nightlife and celebrity vacationers. Five-star luxury accommodation is the norm in this wealthy French seaside village. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the Airbnbs here offer much more than your average guesthouse. Just a stones throw away from nearby destinations such as La Ponche, Place des Lices and Pampelonne beach, Culture Trip has picked the best Airbnbs.
This studioAirbnb is ensconced amongst the old cobbled streets of the most historic part of the small village of St. Tropez and practically overlookingLa Ponche, one of only three beaches in St. Tropez. The cobbled streets are home to upmarket boutiques, art galleries, high-end delicatessens and elegant restaurants. It’s the ideal location for this Airbnb, which features whitewashed walls and a calming cream colour scheme throughout. It’s housed inside a traditional cottage and sleeps four people (two in a double bed and another two people on the pull-out sofa). The flat is full of old-world charm coupled with everything visitors need. Although the space is compact, it’s beautifully designed. There is only limited parking nearby, but that has to be expected from such a congested historic area.
With its front door facing the small beach of La Ponche, this Airbnb is sheer bliss for sea lovers and sunbathers alike. With its two bedrooms across two floors and a generous living space, the townhouse is ideal for either a family or two couples. The main draw here is the close proximity to the bay – few apartments in the area boast a jetty like the one at this Airbnb, which is so close to the house that it’s almost private. On summer evenings, lie in bed facing the sea views over the Mediterranean or treat yourself to dinner in the nearby restaurant. In the winter, you can revel in the emptiness of the beaches and walk out onto the jetty, which you’ll likely have all to yourself.
Under its seemingly glitzy surface, St. Tropez remains an authentic village where it’s not uncommon to find people participating in a game of boules in the village square, Place des Lices.This beautiful Airbnb offers a cottage retreat in the city with outdoor space that is unrivalled for the price. It has two bedrooms, each of which have space for two people. One bedroom faces out onto the courtyard, while the other, on the first floor, has its own terrace and stylish chaises longues. Reservations are taken by the week.
Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms surrounding a newly refurbished swimming pool, this townhouse allows its guests to feel completely relaxed in luxurious surroundings whilst still being in the heart of the old village. Just moments from the weekly market and all the shops, this gem is ideal for people who want some space but still want to be in the heart of the action. An added bonus is that it is just opposite the best bakery in the village, La Tarte Tropézienne, home of the famous dessert by the same name.
This stunning villa overlooks Pampelonne Beach, which was famously featured in the Brigitte Bardot film And God Created Woman (1956), and ticks all the glamour boxes for a chic spot to relax on the French Riviera. Cap Tahiti – where this palatial Airbnb can be found – is a gated community of prestigious mansions. With its six bedrooms, it’s the ideal location for entertaining or celebrating an event with friends. There’s a stylish gazebo in the garden that can seat 16 people for drinks, plenty of outdoor seating, a cascading pool overlooking the sea and even private beach access.
