Hotel Byblos, St Tropez, France
Hotel Byblos, the brainchild of Jean-Prosper Gay-Para, was born out of his adoration for Brigitte Bardot and desire to impress her; it quickly became the beating heart of St Tropez, attracting people from far and wide. Although the rich and famous have stayed here, the hotel warmly welcomes all, as it effortlessly captures the essence of laid-back luxury, emitted by St Tropez. The enticing outdoor pool, exceptional food offerings (boasting produce from the garden prized by the chef), bespoke Byblos wine from nearby Domaines Vineyard, beautiful interiors adorned with antiques from around the world and friendly yet efficient staff - all a short stroll from the chic coastal town of Saint Tropez - make this a hotel you'll want to return to again and again.

Style & Character
Ideal for couples looking for a romantic retreat or friends wanting to be best placed for a touch of St Tropez luxury and the best club in town at their feet. Post-spa treatment you're taken to relax on a lounger upon a stunning design by Roger Capron; a turquoise hued geometric tiled floor, with face patterns peeking through, it's intriguing and iconic.

Food & Drink
The perfectly boiled eggs and cute soldiers at breakfast were a nostalgic throwback and even better smothered with the sultry demi-sel butter. The clever dessert mirrored the savoury starter of stuffed tomato and courgette flower; instead of savoury, the flower was stuffed with rice pudding and tomato with sweet rosemary cream.
