“And God … created the French Riviera”
From a small fishing village to a gorgeous resort on the Mediterranean coast, internationally well-known since the 50’s, SaintTropez has become the epicenter of the French Riviera and Sénéquier, its cardinal point.
The café was founded in 1930 on the harbour and on the village side, the patisserie which was established in 1887 is still there,
located at the “Place Aux Herbes”.
When the first artists, writers and actors landed on the peninsula of Saint-Tropez in the late 19th century, the Sénéquier family was already sharing their ancestral recipes: White nougat, tart tropézienne and candied fruits.
The large red terrace with its splendid view over the harbour came much later, as a ” Tea Room ” at first, a frame for the homemade pastries and sweets, and then, as ” Le Café Sénéquier “,
a privileged observatory of the “Nouvelle Vague” (an art movement in French cinema from 1956 to 1963) and an eternal scene of the French Riviera.
Some 125 years have passed and Sénéquier remains faithful to its family tradition and Mediterranean values such as authenticity, quality, pleasure and friendliness. On the red terrace of this famous “Red Sénéquier”,
like nowhere else, enjoy the sun, the heat, the food, the entertainment… The Mediterranean.
