A day in St Tropez

On the way to St Tropez from Hyères (only about 50km east), we stopped at Le Lavandou beach for a picnic of tapenade and baguette that we bought on the way up at a market we spotted. Even if we don’t buy anything, we just love the atmosphere of outdoor markets.

After a wander around the quaint cafés which no doubt are a hive of activity in the summer holidays, we tore ourselves away and headed off for more gorgeous views along the coastal road – no wonder you hear so much about the French Riviera, it really is beautiful.

The weather was really quite hot, so once in St Tropez, we treated ourselves to an ice-cream at Barbarac before meandering around the waterfront and shopping areas. Very pretty, and the first time I really took in what I call “the colours of the south” – the pastel palette of paints used on the buildings.

Another great day.

    I’ve got a post about St Tropez ready to go. I almost did it yesterday, but put up Finland instead. It even has the same heading, but I will change it now. Isn’t it a gorgeous place?
