In the South of France, glamour is a fact of life and jetsetting is a word that has been ingrained in the vocabulary of the international elite since as early as the 1960s. In Saint-Tropez in particular, that glamour is amplified by old world charm on the stone-filled streets in the La Ponche quarter, wooden yachts that line up in the Vieux Port, and a slew of designer outposts along narrow walkways that fit in so well that for a second you confuse Georges Clemenceau for being Saint-Germain-Des-Prés. Though it’s a very small little village, Saint-Tropez is known for being the place to holiday for the French upper class and it's quite possibly my favorite part of the Côte d'Azur.

"Et quand revient l'été à Saint Tropez
Tous les garçons sont beaux à Saint Tropez
Toutes les filles sont belles, belles à croquer
Au rendez-vous d'amour de Saint Tropez ".
