REMEMBER TO MENTION FURTHER AFIELD WHEN BOOKING
HOTEL DE PARISSaint Tropez, France
Formerly graced by the likes of Jean Cocteau, Coco Chanel, Clarke Gable and Brigitte Bardot, this über stylish hotel is a five star legend. A getaway for the wealthy and glamorous, the hotel that has a spectacular suspended swimming pool above the lobby, is a stunning venue from which to experience the decadent resort.
Situated in the middle of the world famous village of St Tropez on the French Riviera, the hotel is a couple of minutes walk away from the harbour, where the rich and famous moor their yachts and sup champagne. If you're into shopping, Chanel is a stone's throw away from the hotel, among many other designer boutiques that you'd normally expect to see in cities like Paris.
This is the same for eateries and bars; St Tropez is packed with excusive restaurants frequented by a vast array of celebrities. If that's all a bit showy for you, look out for the Place des Lices Market, where you'll find an interesting array of stalls, as well as cafes aplenty in which to drink coffee, eat croissants and people watch. There are small modern art galleries and interesting architecture to appreciate, but St Tropez is more about being seen than looking at things!
The famous Pampelonne beach frequented by body beautifuls, is a car ride away but the hotel will organise a private shuttle service, with freshly laundered beach towels thrown in. And if you wish to venture further afield, wine-tasting trips are a good option, as are boat trips to French hotspots along the coast. The nearest airport to Saint Tropez is Toulon - Hyeres, approx 50 mins away. Or you can fly to Nice, which is about 1.5hr away. If you're in a particular hurry to order a cocktail or dive into the hotel's pool, you can get there by helicopter from Nice International Airport or Toulon - Hyeres Airport in just a few minutes. Sounds like a plan.
