Hôtel de La Ponche St-Tropez, France

“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. ”

“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.”
