A rustic-chic hillside hideaway in the French village of Ramatuelle, near glitzy Saint-Tropez, with breakfast
Adored by the glitterati for its sparkling sands, turquoise-tinted waters, swanky hotel scene and gleaming mega-yachts, the billionaire’s playground of Saint-Tropez is one of the most iconic spots on the French Riviera. So the setting for this chic little resort couldn’t be better; in the quaint hillside village Rouillere, just five kilometres from the heart of the action.
There are only nine guest rooms, all of which are individually-styled and have whitewashed walls with playful pop-art prints, sleek wooden fixtures and fittings, and double beds dressed with crisp white linens. Further hotel highlights include a mosaic-clad outdoor pool and an on-site gallery that showcases the works of French contemporary artist Sylvie Pages.
Spend your days sharing sand space with A-listers (possibly) on the star-studded Pampelonne Beach, stocking up on cheese and olives at Place des Lices market, and taking sunset cruises to gaze at the coastal mansions. Once you’re done with sightseeing, head back for Mediterranean and Côte d’Azur cooking followed by a glass of wine (or two) from one of the local vineyards.
