Perhaps even more famous than Cannes, the historical Saint Tropez in Southern France is one of the most popular and beautiful of France's holiday hot spots. In the peak season of August, what seems to be half of France descends on this picturesque town and its surrounding areas, for the annual vacation.

Saint Tropez is definitely a place to be seen and is a popular hangout for the rich and famous. Million Dollar yachts line up along the harbour, which is bordered by restaurants and cafe's all packed with locals and tourists alike. Saint Tropez is a very happening place and has an excellent nightlife, some incredible restaurants and numerous picturesque beaches all around.

You do not need to be in the centre of Saint Tropez to be able to enjoy all the town has to offer. The region in which Saint Tropez finds itself is scattered with some beautiful small towns, villages and beaches.

Two of the best hotels in and around Saint Tropez are the Château de la Messardière and Villa Belrose (in Gassin). The 115 room Château de la Messardière is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World and is open from around the end of March to mid October. This stunning hillside hotel offers travellers some breathtaking views of the sea and the Bay of Saint Tropez. The Vila Belrose, open from mid-March to end-October, is another stunning property, and is a member of the Relais & Chateaux group which by itself, speaks volumes about the level of service and luxury you can expect at this hotel. The Villa Belrose is set in a private estate overlooking the Bay of Saint Tropez and with only 38 rooms offers travellers a highly personalised escape.

While those two properties may well be the best hotels in Saint Tropez there are hotels to suit any budget, some of the other leading hotels in Saint Tropez include, La Bastide de Saint Tropez, Le Byblos, La Mandarine, La Ponche, Résidence de la Pinède, La Tartane, Le Yaca, Villa Marie, and the Château de Valmer.
