Frejus

When it comes to history and culture in France, Paris—particularly its museums—is always the head of the pack. And while this may ring true most of the time, you can't just deny that other parts of the country, even the likes of Saint-Tropez, can also offer the same sort of fascination. Enter Frejus, arguably one of the more 'ancient' neighborhoods in the city. Full of relics and ruins, this coastal town doesn't just have the seaside to offer, but riches in both history and culture.

Gassin

Gassin is, without a doubt, one of the most picturesque cities in Saint-Tropez.

Flower pots encasing bright pink, yellow, and purple flora that line the narrow pathways provide the soft touches of colors needed to contrast the neutral hues. Cobblestone streets remind you of simpler times, ones where romance was all you ever needed to stay happy in life. And, of course, an astounding panoramic view of the city. One that not even the beauty of Paris can rival!

Stone castles and towers, like the 11th-century structure Chateau de Grimaud, fascinated with their old-world severity and rustic charms. Meanwhile, cafés and bistros provide the contemporary comfort you'd need when you take a break from sight-seeing all over the place.
