Or, to be more precise, and to give the new exhibition of the Museum of the Gendarmerie of Saint-Tropez its official title, "Animals and Stars". A gallery of original, fun and endearing portraits by photographer Edward Quinn.

The famous little Var port of Saint-Tropez hides a truly atypical place – the "House of Butterflies". Based in an authentic Saint-Tropez house, the museum shelters a unique collection, a fabulous selection of diurnal butterfly species from France and elsewhere. These divinely beautiful butterflies, with their light, diaphanous grace will give wings to nature lovers and budding scientists!
We know the beautiful city of Saint-Tropez for of its shady squares and its typically Provençal alleys. We also know the magical beaches that dot the Gulf and the mimosa flowers that are just opening with the warm mildness of early spring. But, did you know that during the eighteenth century, the port was one of the most important on the Mediterranean? That seamen set off to explore the entire Ottoman Empire as their wives waited here for them to return? It’s an epic story best told by the Maritime History Museum.
This year, the famous Les voiles de Saint-Tropez brings the gulf to life from 30th September to 8th October. It's a unique opportunity to see some of the most beautiful old and new yachts as you cheer them on in races that combine sporting performance and expertise with flair and elegance.
As the light softens and seems less harsh, our wonderful beaches take on a more intimate atmosphere. There's no doubt that summer is coming to an end. However, its passing invariably makes way for a delightful and alluring late season. And, since the Sezz Saint-Tropez is preparing to close for winter, we invite you to make the most of these last, colourful days with our "Indian Summer Offer".
During your stay in St Tropez you should not miss the exhibition of five major works by the Franco-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle, She is perhaps most famous for her Nanas, a series of distinctly feminine sculptures that she began creating in the mid-60s, bursting with bold primary colours and voluptuous forms that will startle you! An exhibition brimming with curves and hues for you to admire from July 1st to October 8th, 2017.
