Hotel Byblos Saint-Tropez, Forbes Four Star
When Roger Vadim released his classic film And God Created Woman starring Brigitte Bardot in 1956, little did anyone know it would cause the tiny fishing port of St. Tropez to become an internationally renowned playground for the wealthy and glamorous. In 1967, Lebanese billionaire Jean-Prosper Gay-Para opened the infamous and wildly extravagant Hotel Byblos on the highest hill of St. Tropez. It is said that he was so enamored of Bardot's beauty that when she married Gunter Sachs later that year, Gay-Para immediately sold the hotel to French entrepreneur Sylvain Floirat. Now, great-grandson Antoine Chevanne oversees this landmark hotel which has become a center of attraction for those wanting to be seen.
Visitors can take advantage of its ideal location surrounded by luxurious palm trees and fountains as well as its traditional Byzantine-meets-Provencal decor found in its stacked houses of pink and ochre color. Explore the crowds perusing around or simply relax by the poolside with peace and serenity. There is also an exceptional level of service without sacrifices on formality like other hotels in St Tropez; plus, have your concierge fulfill anything your heart desires!
