Hotel Pastis, Saint Tropez
A modern contrast to the charming historic port of Saint Tropez, Hotel Pastis is an ideal setting for those who want to soak up some sun and take in a little rest and relaxation while keeping to the theme of a luxurious vacation in the south of France.
Run by a husband-and-wife graphic design duo from London, the completely renovated eight-room hotel feels like a quaint provençal B&B—but the contemporary art and Sex Pistols records adorning the walls tell a different story, much like the Space Invader tile hidden among the steps of the spiral staircase leading the way up to the rooms.
Situated within walking distance from the action of the marina, but the villa-style hotel keeps a tranquil ambiance with a majestic pool surrounded by towering palm trees, enticing guests to lounge around with a glass of local rosé.
The hotel strikes the perfect balance of classic French styling and modern amenities, with meticulous details throughout. Ornate doors open on to rooms with wood-beam ceilings, each including a terrace or balcony, with spatial bathrooms boasting heated towel racks, local toiletries and bathtubs large enough for two.
Prices vary between 175-600€, depending on season and size. Contact Mr & Mrs Smith for reservations.
