Mythical 5 star hotel in Saint Tropez

Spirit and values

“La Ponche was then (in 1958) a refuge. A place for resting, enjoying and writing”

“Days went by in a carefree and pleasine atmosphere. We chatted for hours then we went for a swim, followed by a nap before enjoying dinner on the port”. Juliette Greco remembers.

“I got out of bed, opened the shutters, and saw the sea and the sky radiating the same blue, the same pink, the same happy feeling” Françoise Sagan.

“At La Ponche, there is still that mythical hotel where we once felt “at home”, where stayed Françoise Sagan, Juliette Gréco and a whole crowd of amusing pals...These were the good, easy going times, when all was simple and true”. Brigitte Bardot.  

These testimonies and tokens of affection are a perfect reflection of the family spirit prevailing in the hotel. While greeting great personalities as well as all true Saint-Tropez fans seeking harmony and serenity, La Ponche is a true home with a special soul. As would a family, we like to give special attention to each one of our guests.

An exceptional hotel... Brimming with life and culture 

La Ponche is all about discreet luxury and elegance; a charming hotel in Saint-Tropez with a secret touch. Adjoining the small La Ponche beach from where the bay of Saint-Tropez faces the Maures hills, the hotel cultivates well-being and cosiness in the colorful Var’s blue, green and gold setting. 
This waterfront 5 star hotel with restaurant is a place of exception filled with history. Take an early morning dip where “Et Dieu créa la femme” was shot, the film in which Roger Vadim staged his young spouse Brigitte Bardot, she who later made Saint-Tropez famous worldwide.

Amidst the twenty two rooms and suites or within the restaurant, refined furnishings associated with Provencal colors truly highlight the village’s atmosphere.
Facing Saint-Tropez’s bay, also the church steeple and the ramparts, the hotel is set on the small historical La Ponche square, a few steps away from the town hall, the church and the famous port harbouring the super yachts. Hotel de La Ponche is also just a few hundred yards away from the world’s fanciest shops.

Hotel de La Ponche is the ideal place for following the season’s finest regattas such as the Giraglia Rolex, the coupe du Bailli de Suffren and the Voiles de Saint-Tropez.
