all year round, and the Mediterranean Seas sparkle never ceases. If you enjoy

The French celebrate New Years
slightly differently from the rest of the world, as the most important day for
them is La Réveillon, which is on January 1st. Everyone gets to
together over a long, traditional lunch and with a glass of champagne in hand,
they raise a glass to the forthcoming year. December 31st is known
in France as Saint Sylvesters Day; it marks the death of a man who played a
role in the rise of Christianity and the fall of Paganism in Rome.
The celebrations start on this day
with feasts of anchovies and an apéro, offered to residents and visitors by the
town itself. As the night falls, people tend to gather at the quaint pavement
cafés where live music is often played. Stop by and indulge in Provencal food
and fine wine.
At midnight, the sky is lit up
with a magnificent firework display, which is set off from a barge not too far
from the port. Many people tend to gather
on the Jean-Réveille jetty to watch them.
However, if you are looking for a
more romantic experience, why not look at our luxury St Tropez Villas,
to accommodate your stay in this beautiful town? You and your partner could be
sitting in a warm hot tub with a glass of crisp champagne, seeing the New Year
in together, how romantic!
