Where is Saint Tropez? Saint Tropez is a French Riviera resort located on the South of France coast in between Marseille and Cannes. This small fishing village on the Mediterranean coast shot to fame and fortune through its association with Brigitte Bardot and a host of other famous film stars and artists at the beginning of the 1960s.

The city of Toulon is 50kms to the West and Cannes is 70kms to the East.

Where is Saint Tropez?
Saint Tropez is a quaint fishing port on the Golfe de Saint Tropez. It has been popular with the ''jet set'' since it was discovered by Brigitte Bardot in 1956 when she was filming Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman. The film, which included many shots of scantily-clad Bardot pouting seductively on the golden sand, was a huge hit and put Bardot and Saint Tropez firmly on the world's radar.
