Villages of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez and our wineries

The 12 villages of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, so join us to find out more about our region. We’ll also take you on a tour of the different wineries in our province.

Focus on 6 emblematic villages,

The Gulf of Saint-Tropez is made up of 12 villages, its fame to the charming and emblematic village of Saint-Tropez. Behind the port, the luxury boutiques and the international reputation, Beyond The Wine takes you into the hinterland, lined with oak, pine and olive trees. A natural environment conducive to vineyards and authenticity. Your local guides, experts in the wines of their region, will take you off the beaten track to discover our Provence wines: IGP, AOP Côtes de Provence…

1. La Croix-Valmer


This is where Sonia Ferchaud, founder of Beyond The Wine, set up her incoming travel agency in 2018. La Croix-Valmer, an unspoilt natural environment. This is the tip of the Port-Cros National Nature Park. Its name comes from the Cross of Constantine, celebrating the Roman emperor who would have seen here a sign of his future reign.

  • Domaine de la Croix, a Cru Classé, has a feeling of being at the end of the world, far from the crowds, the glitter and the celebrities. And yet it was in 2001 that this estate, founded in 1882, met its new owner: Vincent Bolloré! The famous French businessman. The estate’s 120 hectares of vineyards are HVE3 certified, including 12 hectares of Bastide Blanche, one of their premium ranges. The cellar’s terrace offers breathtaking views, and it’s right here that we offer our yoga classes.

Clap de vin,

This new activity is aimed at companies, groups of friends, families… A 100% Croisien team-building activity. The scenario involves two teams (or three) searching for a lost trunk in two La Croix-Valmer wine estates, Domaine de la Croix and Domaine de la Madrague.

Since this year (2023), Domaine de la Madrague has been grouped together under the “Nos Belles Terres” label of excellence. It brings together the very best that our terroirs have to offer : fine wines, Champagnes and prestige villas.


2. Saint-Tropez


This internationally renowned fishing port with its charming little streets is always in the news, and we’d like to tell you about it in our own way, the way the locals do. Brigitte Bardot, the Place des Lices, the Church of Saint-Tropez, its port, its citadel, its police station, its jet-set, its painters (Paul Signac among many others), its Ponche beach where many films have been shot… A small port in terms of size, but one of the most famous on the Côte d’Azur, even the famous Netflix series Emily in Paris shot a few scenes in front of the famous Sénéquier restaurant.
