Gassin, just 10 minutes drive through vineyards to both the beaches and to the centre of St Tropez.
St Tropez 6 kms

Gassin is located right next to Saint-Tropez. Perched high up on a rock, it is less than 4 km (2.5 mi) from the sea. The seaside resort town Saint Tropez is still very popular with the tourists, although the jet-set and the in-crowd have long since left it behind. Set on the lovely blue water of the Bay of Saint-Tropez, this modern version of a medieval town is most popular for the line of yachts along the quai, and the facing line of terrace cafés, divided by a parade of strolling tourists and slow cruising expensive cars.
Behind the cafés, the small streets and old buildings are picturesque, but they're more popular for the multitude of shops and restaurants than historical significance.
There are endless possibilities for buying gifts or items of proof that "you've been here". St Tropez is in the area of the Côte de Provence wines. There are several vineyards around St Tropez and nearby Gassin that offer wine tasting along with their wares.
Beach Clubs: There are a few beaches on the Baie de St. Tropez, east of town, but most are along the beautiful Baie de Pampelonne, three miles southwest of town (technically in Ramatuelle).
While a few are public, you can only access the worthiest stretches by paying admission to one of the beach clubs listed here. They're fancy affairs, with facilities including restaurants, lounge chairs, changing rooms, and showers, and occasionally dance floors and open-air hot tubs. Many have live DJs (forget about peace and quiet), and each has its own personality.
