Saint-Tropez property guide

Offering remarkable views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Maures mountains, as well as the chic side to Riviera life, Saint-Tropez is one of the most sought-after resorts in the world.

Saint-Tropez property guide

Saint-Tropez is situated in the Var department of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and has long attracted stars from the worlds of fashion, film, music and sport. From quaint little fishing port to glamorous and upmarket Mediterranean resort for the global elite, Saint-Tropez has evolved over the years into one of the most sought after locations for prime real estate.

While it is one of the most expensive places to buy property in the world, certain changes in the French property market mean that buyers seeking luxury properties can stretch to those which may have previously been unattainable.

“As a safe haven location for property investment we are seeing a rise in the number of buyers making enquiries and buying properties in Saint-Tropez,” says Tim Swannie, Director of Home Hunts.

“It is a unique time for the French Riviera property market because asking prices have dropped over the past few years. Combined with the low mortgage rates and favourable currency pairings on offer, this is a good moment to invest in one of the most exclusive locations in the world.”

Saint-Tropez is famous the world over for its spectacular beaches, including Plage des Graniers, Plage des Salins and Plage de Pampelonne. The latter is the most famous, as is its beach club Le Club 55 where stars such as Elton John and Hugh Jackman can be found.

But what could be more desirable than private beach access in Saint-Tropez?

Les Parcs de Saint-Tropez

Many would say that Les Parcs de Saint-Tropez is the most exclusive of the private residential estates in Saint-Tropez. A favourite with the jet-set, it is bordered by palm trees and is highly secure both day and night. An area that covers around 200 hectares, a sea view is pretty much guaranteed from each property as is access to a private beach, which is only offered to residents of Les Parcs.

Situated in Les Parcs, this magnificent six-bedroom bastide-style property offers breath-taking sea views and is a ten-minute walk away from the domain’s private beach. A luscious, landscaped garden that flowers all summer long, half-moon swimming pool and stunning terraces for wining and dining make this a must-view property for those looking to invest in luxury property in Saint-Tropez.

Le Capon

One of the most prestigious and popular residential areas in Saint-Tropez, Le Capon is located close to the beach at Les Salins.

This part of town always receives many enquiries from overseas buyers looking to buy property in Saint-Tropez as it is secure, peaceful and offers magnificent views over Canebiers bay.

This superb seven-bedroom bastide property is located in the prime area of Le Capon, around five-minutes’ drive from the centre of Saint-Tropez. This luxurious home has been built on two levels with bright, spacious interiors.

Outside the garden is landscaped with a large, classically-styled swimming pool and vast terrace, which is perfect for entertaining family and friends during the summer. The price is available on application.

Live in the heart of Saint-Tropez

Once an unassuming fishing port, the Mediterranean light and Provençal colours throughout Saint-Tropez have inspired many artists over the years.

The colourful fishermen’s houses are some of the most painted and recognisable views in the world. Found in the centre of the old village and along the port, these areas are considered some of the most coveted property hotspots in Saint-Tropez.

Central development opportunity

The possibility of creating new residences don’t come along very often in Saint-Tropez, so this is a rare opportunity for the right investor.


Within walking distance to the village, this former hotel property, consisting of two buildings, now has planning permission to be converted into two properties: one four-bedroom and one six-bedroom home. There would also be enough space to include parking facilities and a swimming pool. The price is available on application.
