What do I need to know about living in Saint-Tropez?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Saint-Tropez, they said:

"Before retiring in Saint-Tropez, expats should know that the cost of living is relatively high, especially in terms of housing and dining. It's important to have a good understanding of the French language, as not everyone may speak English. Expats should also be aware of the French healthcare system, which is one of the best in the world, but may require some time to navigate. Understanding the French tax system is crucial, as France has a complex tax structure that can affect both your income and wealth. Expats should also be aware that Saint-Tropez can be very crowded during the summer months, as it is a popular tourist destination. It's important to understand the local culture and customs to integrate well with the local community. French people value their traditions and etiquette, so it's important to respect these. Expats should also be prepared for the slower pace of life in Saint-Tropez, which can be a significant change from a fast-paced city life. The climate in Saint-Tropez is Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot summers, which can be a factor to consider depending on personal preferences. Lastly, it's important to know that while Saint-Tropez offers a high quality of life, it may not offer as many amenities or activities as a larger city. Therefore, it's important to consider your lifestyle and what you want from your retirement before making the move," wrote a member in Saint-Tropez.
