Saint Tropez – stay classy and fabulous at a Saint Tropez legend !
So first questions firsts, where to stay in St. Tropez?
If the building could talk, it would tell you its story – a story which goes back to the height of Saint-Tropez’s fame. Back in 1928 Marcel and Augustine Aubour invested their savings in a plot of land at the heart of Saint-Tropez, then just a small fishing village, but already home to a number of painters and artists including Colette, Matisse and Signac.
1931, Hotel de Paris-Saint-Tropez opened and the Parisian intelligentsia and art world as Coco Chanel became regulars.
In the early 1950s Francoise Sagan arrived barefoot in her Jaguar and Juliette Greco, Boris Vian and Jcques Prevert left their poetic and musical legacies. In 1956, the “and god created woman” was filmed, strengthening the legend of Saint-Tropez and creating an indelible link with Brigitte Bardot.
The history itself from the hotel is like writing a “who is who” over the high society.
The hotel held this position throughout the seventies and eighties, until it closed 1992. In 2001, millionaire Claude Dray mouth bought and renovated the hotel to bring the legend back to life. Rebuilt by architect Francois Viellecroze and decorated by Sybille de Margerie.
The hotel is really modern styled and you can feel the glorious history vibes all over this majestic place. The lobby is really amazing and has a great stylish open design.
I personally loved the stylish interior and art collection, to have a Apero on the bar and watch the scene was one of my favorites to do.
One of my highlights of the hotel is the fantastic roof top terrace with a pool, where you can enjoy your glass of wine and the beauty of Saint Tropez from above. It is a five-star hotel giving you all the amenities you could wish for, when staying at this wonderful place.
The rooms are really modern and minimalistic designed.
The hotel has also a own restaurant and a bar where you can enjoy high quality snacks, drinks and of course great dinner and lunch.
When we were there, they had a great fashion show!
The service, especially the concierge, is really helpful and can reserve the best tables at the well known restaurants. Also they give you great assistance if you need help in booking a yard or going by helicopter to Monaco. Don’t forget to check out the Spa treatments ! After partying in Saint Tropez just always the right thing to do !
