Our accommodation in Saint Tropez Citadelle for a holiday
It represented the most important element of defense between Antibes and
Toulon for centuries, and even played a military role until the Second
World War. In memory of this past, a museum of the sea has naturally found its place in this atypical space. Being on the constraints of the building, many small rooms shelter treasures, such as collections of navigational tools, models of ships that have for the most part sank to-day, charts and other archival documents that bring to life again the exsistence of sailors accross the ages. Informative and entertaining, this museum will enchant the entire family, from small pirates to those keen on naval battles and history. This visit can also be combined with a beautiful walk ... If you leave from the center of Saint-Tropez, follow the Rue de la Citadelle which will lead you naturally towards the Montée de la Citadelle. She walks through huge gardens to unusual tenants. Indeed, only the peacocks in freedom venture to disturb the sonorous harmony of this extraordinary garden that Charles Trenet would have liked so much. Every summer, magnificent contemporary sculptures are invited to invest the premises. The citadel and its gardens represent a military and cultural heritage to visit absolutely. The panorama that offers the heights of the citadel invariably gives us the desire to go and taste this sea of intense blue. No worries, the pretty little beach of the Graniers is very easy to reach on foot. At the bottom of the southern slope of the citadel, along the Chemin des graniers, after the marine cemetery, you will find a small wild and natural creek, irresistible invitation to bathe!
