Sightseeing in Saint-Tropez, a wonderful seaside village with legendary reputation for both quality of life and its architecture including the fortified citadel. Home of the famous French movie star Brigitte Bardot, the international renown of Saint-Tropez attracts many celebrities on their luxury yachts every summer.

Though the peninsula of St-Tropez is one of the most frequented touristic sites in the world, the small village of Gassin which overlooks this remains little known today. However, like a jewel poised on its green mat, Gassin offers to visitors magic moments of mystery.  One is amazed, with the impression of being on the roof of the world ! As far as the eye can see, the deep blue sea contrasts with the tender green of forest and vineyards shared by no less than seven wine domains and "chateaux".  After contemplating this unique panorama, one strolls gently through pretty, winding streets adorned with flowers. Now one understands why Gassin acquired the distinction of "Plus Beau Village de France" !
