The Legend… Behind the… Legendary Club 55… | Côte D’Azur Travel Series

Patrice de Colmont et Moi at Club 55...J’adore“… Tuk-Tuk Express

A delightful form of transportation… from Bangkok…

Just arrived… to escort us… to our very own favourite heaven…

Le Club 55

The legend… behind the legendary “Club”… in Saint-Tropez…

Patrice de Colmont

Owns and runs… this hallowed enclave…

Graciously… with passion and much love…

Alighting from our striped… red and white Tuk-Tuk…

C’est mignon“…

We are struck… by the sheer beauty and magic of the place… as we enter the oasis of white and blue…

Gambas grillés at Club 55...Tables of square and round shapes… with pillows hugging every nook and cranny… of the rustically elegant stylishly endless white corner divans… to woo… or be wooed in…

L’amour l’amour“…

Shading and protecting this glorious setting… are huge rough ivory-white tents breezily overlooking “le beau monde“… (chattering… laughing… eating… drinking)… like haughty white sails majestically sailing away into the divine shimmering sea beyond…

Quel“… bliss…

It was lovely meeting with Patrice again…

Comme toujours“…

A discreet man… who adores the understated… does not differentiate between kings… princes… aristocrats… industrialists… celebrities… yacht-owners who frequent his beloved establishment…

And the people… “normale“… as well as his fellow “Les Voiles de SaintTropez” sailing friends… and the “Tropéziens” locals…

Respect…

Boutique of the Club 55...Having washed down the delicious “Assiette de melon jambon et figues“… “Fritures de poissons… Grillade de gambas“… and “Le Grand Aïoli“…  a local Provençal dish… accompanied by a chilled Côte de Provence Rosé…

We polished off all this indulgence with their speciality… “Tarte aux fruits rougesfait maison“… as we are serenaded by the musical Trio who delight us with lovely ballads and jazz….

Weaving our way on… “les sables d’or de la plage“… we head towards the Club’s boutique selling… “des petites choses de plaisir“… from the lovely nomadic romantic scarves… to fun jewellery and the “incontournables“… Club 55 beach bags…

Tout est très charmant“…

Having spent… a mythical day…

At our oasis… of paradise…

We very… reluctantly…

Bade Patrice… farewell…

À bientôtà l’année prochaine“…

Le Club 55

Exceeds…

Riding in the adorable Tuk-Tuk...One’s… dreams…

One’s… ethereal fantasies…

Patrice de Colmont

He is.. an inspiration…

WE…

Love…

Him…
