Dior — Ready-to-wear, accessories and jewelry. A 2,000-square-foot, full-service boutique.

Pucci — Bikinis, terry cloth beach wraps and floaty moussiline tops and dresses have been flying out the doors.

Boucheron — Fine jewelry at the beach.

Bayader at Byblos — Seven prix fixe menus, each named after the color of one ingredient that figures in the cuisine.

Le Poete Ivre — Cool, hot and spicy. Pan-Asian cuisine in the narrow alleyway rue des Feniers.

Les Caves du Roi — Newly renovated, although the flashing light columns remain. “They’re the soul of Les Caves,” says proprietor Antoine Chevanne.

La Villa de Marie — A secluded oasis of “Luxe, calme et volupte.” A hotel and restaurant on six secluded acres with remarkable views. The spa has a jasmine wrap for after-sun soothing.

“The Legend of Saint-Tropez” (Assouline) — Journalist Henry-Jean Servat’s A to Z guide to the port’s mythic past plus, of course, great celebrity pictures of everyone from Picasso to Mick and Bianca.


K Jacques — For the classic Saint-Tropez sandal, inspired by Greco-Roman styles.

Barabarac — Yacht owners buy enough delicious ice cream to last their entire cruise.

Senequier — It’s a cliché, perhaps, but the white almond nougat is heaven in a foil wrapper.

l’Epicerie — Even Maryvonne Pinault goes to this closet-sized shop on Place aux herbes for fresh pasta, local goat cheeses and tiny, hazelnut-studded cured sausages.

Rapsodie — A tiny selection of CDs and DVDs, perfectly chosen. Local musical favorites: Kaskade’s “It’s you, it’s me,” hypnotic deep house with soulful vocals, and the Byblos compilation.

Fete la Fete — The best party planner in town.

Daniel Cremieux — A traditional men’s shop with a new burst of energy. Find light-as-a-breeze knit-linen polo shirts.

The beach shops — Each club has its own barefoot boutique for pareos, straw bags and bikinis.

Re — A multibrand shop for Roberto Cavalli and Andia’s own design.

Lilly — For Gucci, Prada, Miu Miu and Fendi.
