There is nearly always something happening in the area. May sees the impressive “l’Europ des Harley”, a gathering of Harley Davidsons from around the continent that descends on the town and surrounding area. This is a spectacle to behold as the proud owners display their beautifully painted machines around town and on the Sunday combine to create a grand procession of these thundering beasts around the town and nearby villages.

Who cannot adore a large piece of Tarte Tropezienne, the luxurious local cake of brioche, cream and crystallised sugar, invented here in the 1950’s. St Tropez is surrounded by some of the best Provencal vineyards producing the famous rose so popular in summer as well as some good reds and whites, the more famous of these being Chateau de Pampelonne, Chateau Minuty and Domaine de la Rouillere.
