As a result of the 1956 film Et Dieu Créa La Femme, starring Brigitte Bardot, Saint-Tropez was transformed from a peaceful fishing village into a haven for the rich and famous. Luckily, the town has retained an original quaint atmosphere and intriguing narrow streets. The old town is set back from the main quay of the old port and has designer shops and boutiques. The quayside is the main focus, where artists line the pavements and bystanders view elegant lines of yachts. The modern marina outside the old port is quieter and within easy reach of the town.
