We normally allow 3 hours for travelling and check in time for departures so please avoid early morning flights. Ideally choose morning arrivals and afternoon departures.

Quite a good solution to transfers for weekend Hen Groups. Affordable by small groups, and gives complete freedom for evening travel and Airportreturns. Will add flexibility to week bookings but not essential as all activities are based at the marina, and beaches,
supermarket, restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. St.Tropez is normally reached by boat or bike.
Some companies include damage waiver insurance but if you don't take out the optional extra insurance - Do Not prang your car, it's expensive

If you drive you should take the Autoroute A8 ( direction Marseille & Antibes ), which will cost about £3 in peages. Leave the A8 at the Frejus/St.Raphael turnoff ( Junction 38 ) and after driving the short distance from the autoroute to Frejus, you drive the rest of the journey along the N98, the fabulous coastline, always following the St.Tropez signs.

From baggage walk straight ahead in the main arrivals hall through glass
doors. The bus terminal is outside and turn to the
right. Terminal 1 seems to have a better choice of buses and a bigger bus
station so it might be worth catching the FREE terminal shuttle
(every 10 mins). This shuttle
is also useful for groups who arrive at different Terminals on different
airlines, for getting together.
The bus travels along the A8 Auturoute to St.Raphael. Change at the St.Raphael Bus Station for St.Tropez. You will need to ask for La Foux & Marines de Cogolin. La Foux (pronounced 'la foox') is where the Geant Hypermarket and MacDonalds is, but there is a stop just around the corner, opposite Marines de Cogolin. Don't be alarmed if the bus goes off to the villages of Grimaud and Cogolin before coming back to La Foux. The whole trip costs about £18 from Nice.
Better connections and the train
journey is picturesque. As above but go to the bus stop appropriate for the
main Nice Train Station,
( 'Gare' is french for station) and pay on bus (approx £2). Get a connection to St.Raphael, then take
the bus (as above) to St.Tropez, getting off at La Foux / Marines de Cogolin, of
: The Train and Bus stations at St.Raphael
are close together and connected by footbridge. The bus
journey from St.Raphael to the Gulf of St.Tropez is stunning! Cost of whole trip is about £20.
TRANSFERS from TOULON
TOULON Airport is nearer than Nice, in
fact it's actually at HYERES ( pronounced 'yere' ).
This is our recommended airport to travel to but unfortunately, at the present time, only Ryanair go there from Stanstead near London and possibly BA and AirFrance from various airports.
It's nearer for us to make a pick up and is an even more pleasant journey. If for some reason we can't make a pick up, there is a bus from the airport direct to St.Tropez and it travels along the coast, past beautiful places such as La Lavandou and Cavalaire sur Mer. Ask for 'La Foux and Marines de Cogolin' the same as the last part of the journey from Nice. Print off the 'final approach' map on the location page and use it as reference. The cost of the bus fare is only about £10 and is probably the cheapest way of getting to us.
