For a campsite in Saint-Tropez

Saint Tropez

Saint-Tropez can be described today as a somewhat trampled paradise. Once a French resort was very popular with celebrities, now it is eagerly visited by the rich and ordinary tourists. The famous faces of the big screen increasingly prefer to hide from onlookers in more exotic places.

To get a feel for the old days, it's best to come to Saint-Tropez before the season. In summer, the city fills up with crowds of tourists hungry for glitz and full-blown fun, contact with the so-called big world and the latest trends. Discos booming with music until dawn, prices in exclusive boutiques can make owners of less bulky wallets nervous, and finding a free spot on the beach becomes an ambitious challenge.

Seafront of Saint-Tropez

Many people associate Saint-Tropez as a resort for the wealthy and famous - it is not without reason that the nearby bay is called the Bay of Millionaires. Most tourists target the center, i.e. the seafront. Walking along it, you can see huge yachts swaying gently on the surface of the water. The sidewalk is occupied by numerous souvenir stands, there are also artists who sketch portraits quickly.

The seafront tempts with dozens of shops and boutiques as well as atmospheric cafes. Sooner or later, every tourist will come here - whether to take a walk along the promenade or to sit in one of the bars with gardens facing the water.

In summer, vacationers spend hours relaxing on the local beaches. They can choose from, among others Plage Tahiti, which can be reached from the center on foot, and Pampelonne , the most popular beach of the peninsula, which extends a bit further. The 5 km long sandy strip has been attracting tourists from all over the world - not only in Europe.

Immediately behind Pampelonne, at the base of the Cap Camarat headland, stretches the Plage de Bonne Terrasse , a smaller and less known beach where you can relax without the crowds. It is even more intimate on the Plage de l'Escalet, but you have to be aware that naturists like it.

Campsite in Saint-Tropez

Saint-Tropez is one of those small resorts that can accommodate a dozen or so times more people in high season than they live there on a daily basis. As befits such a prestigious resort, it has an extensive accommodation base, including several-star hotels with apartments of a higher standard. You can also find campsites without any problems, such as Camping "La vigneraie 1860" , situated by a vineyard, 150 meters from the Pampelonne beach. It offers accommodation in apartments, a camping site and pitches for campers. Those who want to pitch a tent will pay between 25.50 and 36.50 euros a day for 2 people, space for a car and access to electricity and showers. On the other hand, motorhome owners who plan to use their own shower and toilet - from 8 to 10 euros a day for 2 people's accommodation and from 2.5 to 4 euros a day for access to electricity. The campsite is 2 ha and has a playground for children and a boules area.

There is a beautiful story behind the creation of "La vigneraie 1860". The first visitors to the campsite were the Swiss who set up camp by the beach. One day they came to the vineyard asking for water and asking if they could pitch a tent among the vines. It was over 70 years ago, and the meeting initiated another fantastic relationship with tourists from different countries.

This is just one of the many campsites that offer hospitality in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. Willing people have a huge selection of cabins, caravans and motorhomes for rent and places where they can stop by their own vehicle. Moreover, the resort tempts sunbathers with a large number of discos, cafes and the beauty of the beaches. He is loved by the wealthy and also by those who secretly dream of meeting a great star. For some it is too loud, too noisy, too bright, for others it is an interesting place. It is certainly worth visiting at least once in your life.

Barcelonnette - Spanish in name only
In the Provencal Alps, at the confluence of two beautiful valleys, there is a French town with a Spanish-sounding name and architecture with distinct Mexican accents. This is Barcelonnette, which has numerous ski resorts as its neighbors, and itself tempts with something completely different - a specific atmosphere, the possibility of blissful relaxation or active time spent among pristine Alpine nature. "Barcelonnette", naturally, is associated with Barcelona and is translated as a diminutive of its name. In terms of architecture, however, it does not resemble much the center famous for the Sagrada Familia temple or residential buildings designed by Antonio Gaudi (including Casa Batlló, Casa Vicens). The city owes its name to the fact that Ramon Berenguer IV, who founded it in the 13th century, was also the ruler of the seat of Catalonia. Barcelonnette is surrounded by Alpine peaks, the largest of which, Grand Berard, rises above the horizon north of the city. On the other side, the sky is decorated with Le Chapeau de Gendarme, considered the most picturesque of all the peaks that cast a shadow over the valleys of the Ubaye River and its tributary, the Bachelard. The town is beautifully situated on the flat bottom of the valley, and a little higher, in the background, there are pastures and meadows. Between them, small hamlets nestled in the landscape, looking as if time had stopped there for at least half a century. Even higher, the areas are covered with pine forests, and above them you can see the mountain peaks, jagged like the edges of a cordon handkerchief. What could be a more relaxing sight, what better place to holiday in the Alps than a campsite in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region ?.
