Villa soirées, Le Club 55, and Les Caves du Roy are where the rich and glamorous hold court. St.-Tropez is one of the most famous and sexiest seaside villages on the French Riviera. The village was thrust onto the international stage when Brigette Bardot frolicked on the beaches. In St.-Tropez, the Rosé flows like water, there is a beach for every mood and anything goes. In this playground, the more sinful, the better.
