St Tropez is renown for its glitz and glamour; a favourite among celebrities, it is easy to see why they’re drawn to the beautiful southern France location. From the impressive yachts navigating the shoreline to the brilliant blue of the glistening sea, there are a plethora of reasons why tourists return to the region time-after-time. However, as a cultural hub for the rich and the famous, questions may arise as to whether or not the area is suitable for children and families.

We have an incredible variety of holiday villas in St Tropez for you to hand-pick your dream accommodation from.

Visiting the coastal village of St Tropez is something that both children and adults alike will remember for a lifetime. With breathtaking views in addition to a vast array of daytime activities and excursions, the little ones in your group will most definitely be able to make the most of their time in what was once a quaint, peaceful fishing village.
Sail the Seas
When visiting St Tropez, it is more than likely that you’ll be mesmerised by some of the incredible boats that are docked in its ports. With some of the most impressive super yachts bobbing in the water, it may tempt your family to try your hand at sailing yourself! There are many different ways in which you can explore the seas, from organised boat trips to renting your own boat.
Test the Waters
Due to its coastal location, there are a host of water-based activities for your and your children to test out! From canoeing and kayaking to paddle-boarding, master a new skill while away. All the equipment that you’ll need is available to hire nearby, so decide on which water sport you all fancy getting to grips with before heading to the water! Not only does this teach your children something worthwhile, but also allows you for bonding while you’re all learning. These can create precious memories that you’ll treasure long after your session has ended, and could perhaps lead to your wanting to revisit the sport at a later date!
Reach New Heights
If you’ve spent the past couple of days sight-seeing and are looking for a child-friendly day out that the whole family can enjoy, why not head to Aqualand or Azur Park? The well-maintained waterpark, Aqualand, has many slides and a lazy river, as well as a café for you to sit down for some lunch at. Similarly, Azur Park has a number of attractions suited towards your family. From thrill-seeking rides for the adrenaline junkies to fairground games for those looking to keep their feet on the ground, a visit here is fantastic if you’re looking for an all-ages excursion.
Unwind on a Beach
St Tropez has some of the most beautiful beaches in France, so you would be foolish to miss the opportunity to bask in the sun and relax for a couple of hours! If you’re looking for the perfect location to soak up some sun while your children enjoy themselves, the Plage des Jumeaux Beach Club on Pampelonne beach may be the place for you! Position yourself under one of the many white parasols before slinking into the restaurant to indulge in a rich, Mediterranean-inspired dish. Your children will love the stretch of golden sand and sparkling turquoise water – a real treat! If you’re looking for something right on your doorstep, La Glaye is precisely what you’re after. With many tourists flocking to the more extensive beaches, this is often overlooked due to being slightly smaller, so is a wonderful option if you’re looking for something a little quieter.
Go Deep-sea Diving
Whether you love a dip in the pool or are a little more adventurous and fancy snorkelling, St Tropez is the perfect place for you to do so! Encourage your little ones to get in the water and splash about to cool down from the glorious summer sun! Taking a dip into the pool at your holiday villa is the ideal way to end a long day out exploring the local area or, while you’re sunbathing at one of the many beaches on your doorstep, test out your underwater swimming with the addition of a snorkel for a fun, inexpensive way to spend an afternoon.
