“Cluster of old houses form a chic, yet intimate hotel right on the beach. The elegant rooms are classically furnished and exude understated luxury. A fine dining restaurant spills out onto the street and terraces are available for breakfast with a view. Easy access to St Tropez town and markets. ”

Hotel Overview

“Overlooking the pocket-handkerchief beach where Bardot filmed And God Created Woman, this cluster of 17th century houses offers a compelling combination of sophistication and warmth. What began as her father's simple fishermen's bar has been transformed over the years by delightful Simone Duckstein into a bustling restaurant and tranquil hotel, filled with the beautiful paintings of her late husband, artist Jacques Cordier.”

Hotel de la Ponche

You'll find simple elegance, charming service and spacious rooms with views over the town or sea at La Ponche, tucked into one of the older, quieter districts of St Tropez, five minutes from the port and the central Place des Lices. Picasso and Sartre were once regulars at the bar.
