    • Questions about transportation within Saint-Tropez

      by akrize Online Now Jan 23, 2016 at 7:27 PM

      Hi there,

      I was wondering if there is anyone who has stayed in Saint-Tropez and has experience/advice to offer about traveling once you're in the city.

      I have heard, like most people, that getting in a taxi and/or renting a car could be a total disaster with all of the traffic.

      Most of our travel plans within Saint-Tropez include the Pampelonne beach, and we have a reservation at Nikki Beach, and maybe a winery. I was wondering if there are any ferries that would take you from the main harbor to Nikki Beach or somewhere in that vicinity? In other words, are there other ways to travel to this side of bay rather than getting in a car?

      Thank you!

      by rangelotti Online Now Apr 27, 2015 at 5:47 PM

      Hi planning trip Sunday 5/7/15 from Nice to St Tropez. i thought i could get:
      - train to St Raphael and then connect bus to St Tropez and then thought i could return
      -bus from St Tropez to St Raphael, then train stopping at Cannes and Antibes (dinner in Antibes) then back to Nice

      Can someone can help me find English timetable for bus from St Raphael to St Tropez.
      Also can i get off and on the Train Express Regional #81219 heading back to Nice or is this express?
      Would also consider boat from Nice to St Tropez and train back stopping at Cannes and Antibes (dinner in Antibes) then back to Nice if this is available?

      Trying to find information about an old falling down castle, or large mansion away from town. It was derelect in the late 1960's when I stayed at a friend of our familys house up in the hills a few miles from town. It had a belltower I remember climbing up to, the stairs were falling apart, and were barely hanging onto the walls when Michelle, a boy about my age and I went climbing around in there.

    • transport from nice to St Tropez in May

      by lindarobin Online Now Mar 8, 2011 at 1:37 AM

      I am flying into Nice, arriving at 12.25pm on Friday May 13. I need to get to St Tropez for a birthday party that night. I thought I would pay 210 euros for a helicopter but it is 890 euros in May which is too expensive.

      I am getting desperate as every website just says getting to st tropez is a nightmare. But I just bought my flight to nice so i am now stuck! Also, I do not want to drive as I am not used to driving in europe (it would not be fair to everyone else). I do not speak french and can understand only minimal written french BTW.

      I would be so very grateful if anyone could help me!

      Kind regards

      I am trying to figure out the best way to get from Paris to St. Tropez either economically or easily. I looked into the trains and they all drop at St. Raphael at which point one takes a ferry. However I cannot seem to find where that ferry leaves you in St. Tropez. This could be the difference between taking a bus, flight, etc. If anyone knows your help would sooooo be appreciated!!

    • Deciding between 2 hotels and 2

      by SWEETPOPPI Online Now Jun 6, 2010 at 1:07 PM

      Deciding between 2 hotels just outside St is Les Capuccines and the other the Pavillion de Pampelonne. They are on opposite sides of the bay I guess one being closer to St Tropez the other closer to Ramatuelle and the beaches. We would have to get a taxi into town with either hotel but Les Capucines is closer to St Tropez.

      I hope to take my mom to St Tropez towards end of July but due to all the volcano action we have not booked anything yet. I am used to staying in luxury hotels here in Anerica but the prices are really high and I don't want to pay700 for an average room. We were thinking of an apartment but I need to research.....or maybe staying in one of the towns nearby? I heard however that the traffic is awful but we won't be driving ( taxis only)are there any chic towns next to St Tropez where we could stay and is it worth while? It may be nice to be out of the hustle and bustle and just go to St Tropez for evenings.
