Saint-Tropez

Saint-Tropez is a coastal town on the French Riviera, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of southeastern France. Long popular with artists, the town attracted the international "jet set" in the 1960s, and remains known for its beaches and nightlife.

Musée de l’Annonciade

In a gracefully converted 16th-century chapel, this small but famous museum showcases an impressive collection of modern art infused with that legendary Côte d’Azur light. Pointillist Paul Signac bought a house in Saint-Tropez in 1892 and introduced other artists to the area. The museum’s collection includes his Saint-Tropez, Le Quai (1899) and Saint-Tropez, Coucher de Soleil au Bois de Pins (1896). Vuillard, Bonnard and Maurice Denis (the self-named ‘Nabis’ group) have a room to themselves.
