It is with sadness that we heard today of the closure of the Voile Rouge beach club in St Tropez...the scene of many decadent afternoon for A-listers spraying champagne with abandon, this famous beach club has been at the heart of St Tropez beach-club culture for many years. Famous - or possibly infamous - for being the first beach club to allow topless guests, the relative calm of the early afternoon gives way to a slightly livelier apero hour and then on to full-blown nightclub after dark...and it's the repeated violation of noise restrictions that has finally resulted in the French Police closing their doors for good. A list regulars such as Bruce Willis, Paris Hilton and Robert de Niro will be sobbing into their Cristal...but here at OS Private Travel HQ, we prefer a civilised glass of Rose 'a la Piscine' at Club 55, or the Prawn and Grapefruit Salad at Laguna Beach club instead! Whether you prefer the glamour or the more understated side of the Cote d'Azur, let us find the perfect property for you...we can even book you your table for lunch at Club 55.
It’s Adieu to a St Tropez institution
