A fisherman’s village that became the place to be for international jet set in the Var
Everything, or almost everything, has been said about Saint-Tropez. Still, 60 years ago, nobody would have thought this peaceful fisherman’s village of the Var, well appreciated by painting artists, would become one of the most world famous places and a popular place to be for the international jet set. Today, the town becomes alive during the summer, filling the marina with yachts of wealthy stars. Behind all the glamour, Saint-Tropez never lost itself and returns to its authentic self in low season. Then it becomes clear why so many painters fell for the colourful fronts at the marina. The Musée de l'Annonciade is dedicated to these artists and offers great collections with works of Bonnard, Signac and Picasso.
