A visit to the attractive 17th century Chapelle Sainte-Anne in Saint-Tropez is above all a chance to admire one of the finest views of the bay and the famous port of Saint-Tropez.
It was originally constructed to thank God for sparing Saint-Tropez from the plague.
A place was needed to remind one that Saint-Tropez was one of the refuges of the pictorial avant-guard between 1890 and 1950.
This is that place, with this remarkable collection from the Musée de l'Annonciade, presented in a beautiful 16thth century chapel: the greatest names of Pointillism, Fauvism and Cubism celebrated the midday light there.
Run by Jean Roch, this nightclub attracts the stars as much as the young party set looking for a trendy place, for a fun night out, to see and be seen! The decor is chic and contemporary with a play of lights and music videos projected on the walls.
If you are hungry you can order food, allowing you to really party all night here!
This is glamourous and exclusive clubbing at its best.
Swing, free, cool or be-bop.
For over thirty years, the Jazz Festival in Saint-Raphaël has brought the greatest musicians in jazz together in this charming town. For a while it specialised in New Orleans style jazz, however the festival then opened up to other styles of jazz. It became a festival of all jazz, in which all styles are honored, from soulful blues to wildest electro free-jazz.
Like any good jazz festival, in addition to the stars who perform one after another on the stage, there will be several jam sessions that allow virtuoso musicians to share their techniques with others.
Biréli Lagrène, Richard Galiano, Manu Katché, Sylvain Luc, Michel Petrucciani, Tito Puentes and Marcel Azzola are among the big names who have performed on stage at this festival in the past.
