Once a peaceful fishing village, Saint-Tropez has reinvented itself as a jetsetter’s mecca, attracting luxury yachts and the glitterati, who come for its dazzling waters and renowned beaches. Since bombshell Brigitte Bardot brought it to the fore when filming her 1956 film And God Created Woman, this formerly sleepy spot has never looked back. Yet, despite its high-flying associations, the captivating destination does retain a bit of calm.
Hôtel Font Mourier is located just three miles from Saint-Tropez, with its own slice of serenity among the pine-covered landscapes of France’s southern coast. You’ll find an outdoor swimming pool complete with a poolside bar, as well as a delectable restaurant, from which you can enjoy regional dishes on the terrace, by the pool or in the garden. What’s more, you’re not far from French Riviera’s beaches at Ramatuelle and the lagoon city of Port-Grimaud.
The hotel’s rooms feature a calming, neutral color scheme to create an uncluttered and fuss-free space, designed for uninterrupted relaxation. Deluxe rooms are 355 square feet, with a king bed.
A buffet breakfast is served daily, overlooking the surrounding pine forests, with a sumptuous selection of hot and cold dishes, drinks and fresh produce from local suppliers. The restaurant is open from midday and offers mixed salads, tartares and planchas, which can be enjoyed on the terrace, by the pool or in the garden. There’s also a poolside snack bar, where you can pick up a fresh fruit plate or indulge with an ice cream, and a bar provides the perfect spot for a sunset cocktail by the swimming pool.
The hotel occupies a beautiful location, overlooking the Gulf of Saint-Tropez on the southern coastline of France. It’s just over four miles from the beaches of Ramatuelle, set in the area’s hilly, pine-clad landscape, ensuring a peaceful environment for a slice of rural tranquility, while remaining conveniently close to the coast. Saint-Tropez itself is three miles away, while the lagoon city of Port-Grimaud is less than two miles from the hotel.
