well the nearest major airport is in Nice Cote D'Azure airport and Nice is roughly 60+ miles from St tropez. Theres alot of traffic jams in the summer as the french usually swarm to the south at this time and so do tourists alike. the other best alternate route is to take a train from Nice to St Raphael and on there by boat from St Raphael to St Tropez and id assume it would probably take a good half of the day gettin there, the longest bit would be gettin from Nice to St Tropez.

If Acid Trip is right and Nice Cote d'Azure is the nearest airport, it'll be 1-2 hours. However, I'd say between 2 and 3 (allowing for delays etc. :rolleyes:).

it only took me 50 mins to get to Germany, and we went over France. so it should be less than this, surely

About 2 hours, and then you have to get from Nice to St Tropex, which depending on the traffic and what route you take, could take a few hours.

Flying from Manchester to Nice usually takes us between 1hr30 and 2 hours, so from Gatwick I'd estimate about 1/2 an hour less than that, so I'd estimate around 1hr30. However, when you book the flights it usually says approximately how long the flight takes, doesn't it?

EDIT: Just looked on Easyjet, and they estimate 2 hours, from the departure and arrival times. There'd be no reason for it to be any different with other companies.

You can't have gone over more than a little corner of France. France extends much further south than Germany does ! :p:
:P okay, i'll let you off

From london to nice about 1 3/4hrs. We usually get a taxi as the trains, buses etc are a nightmare, you never know when their running, IF there running. We got stuck for 3 hrs waiting for a bus only to find it wasnt running at all and we had to walk miles. If you can afford a taxi which is about 250.00 euros return a car its well worth it. If you havent been before its wonderful, but be warned, a cup of coffee on st tropez front is around 4.00 in our money, its not a cheap holiday, but i love it. So make sure you take everything you need, its not like spain where you buy all your toiletries out there to save weight, then throw whats left away before you come back.

Why don’t you just do the normal thing and look at the flight time on skyScanner or an airlines website....
