St Tropez – A Town of contrasts

Yachts sailing off St Tropez

For the second town on the new blog I have chosen St Tropez.

Not only is it one of my favourite places to paint watercolours but it is a fascinating town of contrasts, the glitzy harbour with the multi million pound boats and yachts, and the quiet back streets with the beautiful Port de Peche and so many little , but good restaurants.

Firstly the ONLY way to get there in a calm way is to take the ferry from St Maxime.  Even in summer you can park at St Maxime and avoid the dreadful traffic round to St Tropez.

Secondly it epitomises the glamour , wealth and beauty of the Southern French Coast.

So here are a few paintings of St Tropez which I do hope you will enjoy
