Saint-Tropez Weather And Best Time To Visit Saint-Tropez
The town of Saint-Tropez is located in the south-eastern part of France and is situated along the French Riviera. Known to be one of the most glamorous spots in France, Saint-Tropez boasts a sunny Mediterranean climate and golden sandy beaches that make it a favourite among all French vacationers. More of a village than a town, Saint-Tropez consists of the vast countryside with pine trees and olive groves and offers a rustic ambience that is loved by all those looking for a break from a typical ‘touristy’ destination. Here is all you need to know about the weather and best times to visit Saint-Tropez.
Summer (June – August)
Summers are the peak tourist season in Saint-Tropez, even though temperatures during this time average around 27⁰C and can often reach highs of 35⁰C during July and August, which is usually the hottest time of the year. The afternoons are clear and sunny and the entire town is buzzing with activity in this season, which is made even more pleasant with the cool sea breezes. Hoteliers make the most out of the large influx of crowds during summers by hiking up their rates, so expect to pay more in all commercial establishments if planning a trip during this time.
Autumn (September – November)
In the early months of autumn, the weather remains warm enough to enjoy outdoor activities like swimming and sightseeing. Temperatures average around 21⁰C, which drop to around 17⁰C by the time November arrives. Tourists are relatively fewer in these months, so travellers who would prefer to explore Saint-Tropez when it’s not teeming with crowds and traffic jams are better off doing so during the autumn season. Hotel prices also drop considerably as autumn approaches. Nights tend to be colder than the afternoons so don’t forget to pack some warm clothes as well.

Winters in Saint-Tropez are quite mild, with minimum temperatures ranging around 6⁰C during the night time; daytime temperatures experience highs of 13⁰C. The amount of rainfall received is also minimal. While winters are mainly considered off-season, the time around Christmas and New Year’s Eve does witness large crowds who visit to take part in the celebrations of this month.
Spring (March – May)
The springtime in Saint-Tropez is known for its mild and pleasant climate that offers welcome relief after the relatively chilly winters. Temperatures average around 15⁰C during early spring and reach around 21⁰C by the time May rolls around. While rainfall is not very common in Saint-Tropez, some amount of precipitation may be witnessed during the spring.
