Though a famous Côte d’Azur vacation spot promising glitz & glam, Saint-Tropez and the surrounding area of the “Golfe de St. Tropez”, is a rather quiet retreat. Especially after dark, on a late summer night close to season end, you got the roads with it’s few sparsely lit (and mostly closed) retail and hospitality locations for yourself.

Perfect conditions for a late night drive. Few in number but quite nice in style, the Golfe de Saint Tropez’s coastal and outback roads offer a variety of neon and other interestingly lit sceneries. The roadside shows clear differences in typographical, logo design and lighting technique terms if compared to what is usually typical for a french village, small town or city.
