Oh, to holiday like Bardot (Image Creative Commons) Booking Brigitte Bardot s Saint-Tropez Saint-Tropez on theÂ French Riviera is where Brigitte Bardot was discovered. Ever since then, she has been permanently linked with the South of France. Best time to book? Now! Story: Holiday Goddess Editors. The spirit of the sexy 1950s and sunny 1960s is alive and well in Saint-Tropez, even today. It was where all the artists arrived from theÂ French New Wave in cinema and it s still the best place to find a (well-disguised) artist or actress. St-Trop, as it s nicknamed, is busiest in October so book now, for the season. We ve found hotels around the magic Â£100/AUD$150/US$150 mark on the Holiday Goddess list for you, but rooms are going fast. The town is not only famous for BB. It is also namedÂ for Saint Torpes . After he was martyred by the evil Roman emperor Nero, his body was placed in a rotten boat with aÂ rooster and aÂ dog . The body landed at Saint-Tropez. In the 1920s Saint-Tropez attracted fashionista queensÂ Coco Chanel andÂ Elsa Schiaparelli . It was here that Chanel popularised the tan. (And Saint-Tropez is still home to one of the most famous fake-bakes in the world today, the award-winning St Tropez range).
