1. Nice airport to Saint Tropez by car (route and travel time)

 

 

For reaching from Nice Airport to Saint Tropez, you need to cover 106 km. The largest part of the route goes along the toll autobahn A8, past the towns Antibes, Cannes, and Fréjus. After 70 km near Le Muy, you need to exit the freeway and turn towards the sea onto the D25 road (this is a standard road, but mainly one lane in each direction, only occasionally two lanes for passing). Then after 46 km you will arrive at Saint Maxime, and from there another 15 km to Saint Tropez along the road beside the coast.

The journey from Nice to Saint-Tropez takes approximately 1.5 hours. However, if you are traveling in the summer, on weekends or in August, then you might spend about 2.5 - 3 hours on the road. In the summer, there are very significant traffic jams from Saint-Maxime to Saint-Tropez, due to the fact that the road is narrow and there are numerous vehicles.

Detour:

There is a detour, if you are late, you need to get to the airport as soon as possible. You can go through Grimaud and then turn left onto the D244 and then D44. Drive through the village of Le-Plan-de-la-Tour. The detour takes about 30 minutes along a winding road and is about 20 km long. You can save 1 - 1.5 hours this way. However, remember, if you are very sick in the car, this part of the journey may be difficult for you.

Cost of toll roads and fuel:

If you want to get to Saint-Tropez faster, you will of course need to take the autobahn rather than along the coast through the cities. This autobahn is toll. You will need to pay the fare twice.

1-st payment point is located near Antibes (Péage d'Antibes), 15 km from Nice airport. For a passenger car you need to pay 3 euros 40 cents.

2-nd payment point is located at the exit from the autobahn, near the town of Le Muy (71 km from Nice). Here you will pay 5 euros 70 cents (for a passenger car).

Total for toll roads, one way from Nice to Saint-Tropez you will pay 3.40 + 5.70 = 9.10 euros.

 

The second item of travel expenses is the cost of fuel (gasoline or diesel). The distance from Nice to Saint-Pope is about 105 km. Fuel consumption will be approximately 10-12 liters, taking into account driving in traffic jams (also depends on driving style and engine size). You will spend approximately 12 * 2 = 24 euros on fuel.

 

Thus, the total cost of travel from Nice to Saint-Tropez (one way) is about 35 euros for a passenger car. By minibus it will cost more than 50-60 euros.

1) Advantages of an individual transfer.

If you have planned your holiday in Saint-Tropez, the easiest, most convenient and fastest way to get there is from Nice airport. How to do it? There are quite a few options: taxi, rented car, bus, train, ferry and even helicopter, as well as their combinations. And, of course, an individual transfer, the benefits of which we will tell you further.

 

Transfer or taxi:

When choosing between ordering a taxi and a transfer, it is important to keep in mind that a taxi is not suitable for all travelers. And that's why. First of all, the price you'll pay at the end of your trip isn't always transparent. It may include additional payments that you may not find out about right away. For example, for the number of passengers, large luggage, provision of a child seat or booster seat, time of day (a night or evening trip will be more expensive), and so on. The price of the transfer is known at the time of booking and remains unchanged subsequently. Thus, the approximate cost of a taxi from Nice airport to Saint-Tropez starts from 250 €, while the cost of a transfer starts from 165 €. Most taxi cars are passenger cars, which means they can accommodate a limited number of passengers and luggage. Also, taxi drivers mainly use Economy and Comfort class cars, so if you want to go Business or Premium class, it’s better not to count on a taxi. When ordering a transfer, the car is selected according to your parameters, and you can be sure of comfortable accommodation.

 

Bus or transfer:

There is no direct bus service between Nice and Saint-Tropez. If you choose this type of transport, you will have to change trains in Saint-Raphael. You can get to this city on route No. 90, which runs every 2-2.5 hours, and from there to Saint-Tropez - on route No. 876, which departs every hour. The cost of the trip will be about 20 €, and the duration without waiting periods for transfers will be almost 3 hours.

 

Train or transfer:

There is no railway to Saint-Tropez. Trains can only travel from Nice to Saint-Raphael, and then you will have to change the mode of transport. So, regional trains with 1st and 2nd class carriages depart from Saint-Augustine station approximately once an hour. The cost of a 1st class ticket is 20.3€, 2nd class is 13.5€. Travel time is just under 3 hours. The station can be reached on foot from the airport building. From Saint-Raphael you can change buses, ferry or take a taxi.

 

Ferry or transfer:

There are no direct ferry lines from Nice, but if you want to travel by this type of transport, the nearest departure point is Golfe Juan, which can be reached by regional train from Saint-Augustine station. The ferry travels to Saint-Tropez only once a day and departs at 09:20. From May 16 to June 30 and from September 1 to September 30, 2024, ferry service operates on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The rest of the time - from July 1 to August 31 - daily. The cost of the trip for an adult is 69 €, for a child under 10 years old - 54 €, children under 4 years old - free. Travel time is 2.5 hours. There is also a ferry service from Saint-Raphael, which can be reached by both train and bus. The ferry operates every day from June 1 to November 3. In the high season, flights depart 6 times a day from 08:00 to 18:00, and in the low season - twice: at 09:00 and at 14:30. A ticket for an adult costs 20 €, for a child under 9 years old - 12 €, for children under 1 year of age the trip is free. Travel duration is 2-3 hours.

 

Helicopter or transfer:

A helicopter is a fast and very expensive form of transport. There is no flight schedule as such; they must be agreed upon in advance. Renting a helicopter, according to the website (blade.com), depends on its model and starts from 2100 €. Price is only one of the features of this type of transport. Helicopters are dependent on weather conditions and the flight is canceled as soon as they are unfavorable. In addition, the helicopter's capacity is low and there are strict restrictions on the amount of luggage. And a helicopter, like other types of public transport, will not be able to take you directly to your hotel (except in rare cases when your vacation spot has its own helipad).

 

 

2) Meeting at Nice airport.

Our driver will meet you in the arrivals area with a name sign, so you can easily find him. In any case, we inform you of the driver’s WhatsApp contact in advance so that you can be in touch with him in any situation. Our advice is to immediately connect to the free wi-fi network upon arrival, which is available at Nice airport, and inform the driver that everything is on schedule and whether you have received your luggage.

If something doesn’t go according to plan and the flight, for example, is delayed, the driver will track this delay and adjust the arrival time. It is for this reason that when booking a transfer, you must provide us with complete flight details.

If the flight delay is prolonged and the driver cannot pick you up due to other transfers, you may be provided with another free car. In this case, the class of the car may change.

The transfer price includes an hour wait after landing flight. Longer waits, as well as waits when stopping at shops and restaurants on the way to Saint-Tropez, are paid separately and range from 50 € to 90 € per hour, depending on the class of car. If you know that you will be delayed at the airport, please notify us and the driver about this in advance (preferably at least 24 hours in advance) so that the driver can come pick you up at another specified time and you can avoid additional costs.

 

 

3) How long does the transfer from Nice Airport to Cannes take?

Under favorable road conditions, driving from Nice Airport to Saint-Tropez takes approximately 1.5 hours. Of course, the traffic situation changes and depends on many factors that should be taken into account when calculating travel time.

Thus, on weekdays in the mornings and evenings there is an increase in the flow of cars due to the fact that local residents go to work and return from work. Usually this is 08:00-09:30 and 17:00-18:30. Transfer time can be about 2 hours.

The highest season for holidays and the influx of tourists occurs in August, so traffic jams almost never disappear during this month. Travel time is 2.5-4 hours.

In addition, Saint-Tropez hosts international events that attract guests from all over the world, which naturally affects the traffic situation. From May 30 to June 2, 2024, the annual yacht race Les Voiles du Froid 2024 will take place in Saint-Tropez. The transfer lasts 2-3 hours. From September 24 to October 5, 2024 The traditional regatta Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez will take place.

When deciding on the period of your stay in Saint-Tropez, please take these features into account and remember the dates and time periods indicated above.

 

 

4) Baggage information for transfer.

It is important to us that the trip for passengers is comfortable, and that luggage is fully accommodated and does not create any disturbances. That is why, when ordering a transfer, we specify the list of luggage, its type and size. This directly determines the type of car that is ideal for you.

Suitcases are the luggage that is almost always taken on a trip. We will definitely ask you to indicate the dimensions of each of them, according to the following parameters:

Size S: height 48-53 cm; width 32-36 cm; thickness 20-24 cm Size M: height 58-63 cm; width 37-41 cm; thickness 23-27 cm Size L: height 65-70 cm; width 42-47 cm; thickness 26-30 cm Size XL: height 72-80 cm; width 48-54 cm; thickness 29-33 cm

 

Other luggage:

In addition to suitcases, you may have other luggage: bags, packages, backpacks, strollers, sports equipment, and so on. We urge you to indicate everything you are taking with you to avoid not only discomfort during the trip, but also the risk of ordering a separate taxi for your luggage. This will cost you significantly more than ordering a transfer of the appropriate size. When transporting pets, remember that they must be in special carriers, the size of which must also be communicated to us when booking the car.

When deciding on the period of your stay in Saint-Tropez, please take these features into account and remember the dates and time periods indicated above.

 

 

5) Selecting a car for transfer.

The price and quality of the trip depends entirely on the chosen car. And this, in turn, depends on your personal parameters: the number of passengers, the number and size of suitcases, the presence of other luggage, as well as your preferences for comfort and class of car.

 

Car capacity:

Car. A much more spacious type of car. They are represented by such models as Renault Trafic, Ford Tourneo, Hyundai H1, Mercedes V class. They have 7 or 8 seats and fairly large luggage compartments that can accommodate up to 10 suitcases of various sizes, as well as hand luggage and, in some cases, sports equipment.

Minibus. Based on body type, passenger cars are divided into two types: sedan and SUV. Examples of such cars: Ford Mondeo, Volkswagen Jetta, Kia SanraFe, Renault Megan, Mercedes E and S-class. This is the smallest class of cars in terms of capacity, designed to transport up to three, maximum four passengers with minimal luggage - 3 M or L size suitcases and a small amount of hand luggage.

Bus. The largest type of car in terms of capacity. Designed to transport large groups of passengers (up to 20 people). A typical representative is the Mercedes Sprinter, the luggage compartment of which can accommodate up to 18 suitcases of various sizes, hand luggage and sports equipment. There are also buses with 40-50 passenger seats, but using them is not always convenient due to their low maneuverability. These are best used for long trips, and for short transfers and driving along the narrow streets of small towns it is better to book several minibuses.

We would like to once again draw your attention to the fact that the car is selected based on the parameters of each individual transfer.

 

Car class:

Its comfort and cost directly depend on the class of the car. The class itself is determined by the wishes of the passengers.

Economy class. The name speaks for itself. This is the class of cars with the lowest price and minimum level of comfort. The interior materials are very basic, and the cabin itself is not very roomy. Examples of cars of this class: cars - Volkswagen Golf or Kia Rio, minibuses - Fiat Scudо or Hyundai H1.

Comfort class. This class is slightly more expensive than economy class due to a more comfortable and spacious interior. The decoration is made of more pleasant materials. Comfort class passenger cars are, for example, Volkswagen Passat or Toyota Camry. Minibuses - Renault Trafic or Volkswagen Multivan.

Business Class. An even higher-priced and comfortable class of cars with a large interior and expensive finishes. An example of a passenger car is a Mercedes E-class, a minibus is a Mercedes Vito.

Premium class. For the most demanding clients who love maximum comfort and convenience even in the smallest details. The interiors of cars of this class are made of the most modern and expensive materials and are equipped with functionality that makes the trip even more enjoyable. An example of a passenger car is a Mercedes S-class, a minibus is a Mercedes V-class.

In winter our clients prefer to go to ski resorts in the French Alps. Transfer from Geneva airport to Courchevel costs 300 - 450 euro, depending on the chosen car.

    • not all taxi drivers communicate in English; predominantly, they are fluent in French
    • if you desire to travel in a Business or Premium class vehicle, a taxi is unlikely to be suitable for you. Moreover, one can expect higher cleanliness standards in such vehicles.

9. Information About Saint Tropez

 

Saint-Tropez is a small picturesque town in the south-east of France in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region. This is one of the most magnificent resorts on the French Riviera, which has become widely known thanks to numerous films (for example, the action of the adventures of the gendarme with Louis de Funes and "The Prick of the Umbrella" with Pierre Richard, as well as the film "And God Created Woman" with Brigitte Bardot takes place here) . Saint-Tropez is one of the most glamorous places on the Cote d'Azur.

 

Important information about Saint Tropez

 

This fashionable resort is known for its excellent beaches and clear sea, picturesque houses and narrow cobbled streets of the old town, as well as charming green courtyards and cozy squares. It's hard to believe that until the 19th century, Saint-Tropez was just a modest fishing village. But thanks to artists and cinema, the city has become a legendary holiday destination.

The largest ski area in the world is also located in the French Alps, in the Savoie department, not far from the Moutiers railway station, partly in the Vanoise National Park. Three Valleys is 600 kilometers of interconnected ski slopes, about 200 ski lifts and 120 kilometers of cross-country skiing trails. The Les Trois-Vallee ski area connects the valleys of Les Alues (the resorts of Meribel, Brides-les-Bains), Saint-Bon (the towns of Courchevel, La Tania) and Belleville (the ski resorts of Val Thorens, Les Menuires, Saint-Martin-de -Belleville).

The ski area is extended into the "fourth" Maurienne valley, adjacent to Val Thorens and connected by a lift to Aurel. The geographical position of the Three Valleys more than 60 years ago was not chosen by chance. The location was ideal for the creation of an interconnected ski area and the development of winter sports: several glaciers (Péclet, Du Borgne, Boucher), three parallel valleys, mountain passes connecting them, 85% of the area is at an altitude of more than 1800 meters, providing guaranteed snow from the start December until the end of April.

 

 

1) History of St Tropez:

 

The settlement of Saint-Tropez appeared on the map in ancient times - back in the 2nd century BC. It was named in honor of the Great Martyr Torpis, that is, Trofim, who was beheaded by the bloodthirsty Nero during Christian persecution in the 60s of the 1st century. The life says that the headless body of a man was placed in a boat and launched into the open sea, as was often done before. The future saint was accompanied by a dog and a rooster.

 

History of St Tropez

 

The dilapidated ship washed up on the shore - where today the lights of Saint-Tropez shine. In the 10th century, Saint-Tropez became pirated - it became part of the Muslim emirate of Fraxinet, which controlled medieval Provence. Since 980, the city has joined the county of Provence. To protect themselves from enemies, the counts built a small fortress on the shore, which has survived to this day, though slightly modified. At the end of the 15th century, Saint-Tropez was taken over by the family of barons Grimaud, that is, Grimaldi, who owned many settlements in Provence and built very beautiful castles here. A curious fact from the history of France and Saint-Tropez in particular is the visit to the city in 1615 by a Japanese expedition led by Hasekura Tsunenaga, a samurai, the first Japanese who visited Europe on a diplomatic mission. It is believed that this was the first meeting in world history between the French and a native of the Land of the Rising Sun. In total, the journey of Tsunenaga, who was called Don Felippe in the West, lasted for seven whole years.

 

History of Saint Tropez

 

The most important historical moment for Saint-Tropez is the reflection of the attack of 22 Spanish galleons in 1637. In honor of this memorable event, a colorful procession is held in the city every year, in which all local residents take part. Finally, an important role in the history of Saint-Tropez was played by artists who in the 20-30s of the twentieth century began to move from the noisy, restless Paris to this blissful place. The first was the neo-impressionist Paul Signac, who settled here in a villa and invented here a special style of writing - pointillism. Other painters followed him - Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, Chris Van Dongen, Marc Chagall. Representatives of the fashion world did not bypass Saint-Tropez either: Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli have been here. In 1956, Saint-Tropez's finest hour came: Roger Vadim chose this town as the location for filming the wonderful film "And God Created Woman" with the brilliant Brigitte Bardot in the title role. A start was made: many went to this quiet town on the Cote d'Azur in search of a beautiful life, entertainment and love. Also, the city was glorified by a series of films about an eccentric gendarme with Louis de Funes in the title role. Since then, tourism has become the backbone of the economy of Saint-Tropez: the city has many restaurants, luxurious villas are rented out and are never empty.

Restaurant "La Vague d’Or"

Restaurant La Vague d’Or in Saint Tropez

An expensive restaurant with three Michelin stars is located in the La Pinede hotel on the plage de la Bouillabaisse. Its name can be translated as "golden wave" - that is why the interior of the restaurant is designed in sunny yellow. The restaurant is run by a gifted young chef, Arno Donkel, who is famous for his exquisite, unique dishes. The way of serving his treats is interesting: at first glance, it can be difficult for a guest to recognize what is on his plate, and it is not always possible to taste all the ingredients of the dish. In case you decide to get to the bottom of the truth, it makes sense to contact the director of the institution, Thierry di Tullio, who happily reveals the secrets of mysterious treats to visitors. What dishes adorn this one of the best restaurants in France and Saint-Tropez? Horse mackerel and crab meat in a tangerine marinade, lobster pieces, st. pierre fish, a unique treat - a portion of frozen sea water, foie gras and celery, sea reptiles with glaze, pot-au-feu with mushrooms and pink ginger. For dessert, if you have enough energy, feel free to order sorbet with yogurt, kaffir lime, as well as wine - Miraval, Hermitage, Cote Rotie. Of course, you will have to pay for all this pleasure: the average check of a restaurant is about 400 euro.
