Between the sky and the sea, these corners of paradise in the south of France

From the Gulf of Saint-Tropez to the Luberon, seven corners of paradise to enjoy the charm of the south.

Luxury, art and pleasure. Ramatuelle Reserve

With the silhouette of Cape Tayla overlooking the bay on one side and the Cape Camarat lighthouse on the other, this haven between sky and sea features Jean-Michel Wilmot’s modernist architecture with familiar Provençal-style Var addresses. . In 2024, it is the decorator Jacques García who pays tribute to the legendary figures of the Riviera of the 1950s: Picasso, Cocteau, Matisse…. then a sky of mineral tones – blue, dark green, terracotta and white – and frescoes commissioned from decorative artist Meilleur Ouvrier de France Delphine Nény. If the original plates of Jean Lursat adorn the walls of La Voile restaurant, it is Julien Capron, the grandson of Roger and Jacot (famous ceramists from Vallauris), who creates lights, decorative vases and ceramic paintings. For this ultra-modern address, a more professional approach is anchored in its space. Look out for the exquisite cuisine of 2-star chef Eric Canino and the legendary serenity of this place on the edge of the Tropezian Whirlwind.

The meaning of the celebration: Sun Saint-Tropez

This new local hotel group opens a first address that reflects its DNA: elegant, retro and cheerful. Objective? Relive the cult of a certain carefree, relaxed luxury typical of the French Riviera. If the hotel aims to be intimate with 43 rooms, all unique and, many of them equipped with their own garden, it combines the charm of a successful stay in Saint-Tropez; somewhere with des Oliviers food trucks and a rural atmosphere for morning coffee, to live and a cocktail bar for dancing under the stars… Pool bar during the day, champagne lounge until early morning, and for the nostalgic, The Strand (the oldest restaurant in the region) is back with local cuisine and vegetables from the home garden. Even the spa, in collaboration with Maison ST, nourishes its protocols with aromatic herbs from Saint-Tropez and Mediterranean salt. We love Madrid designer Luis Bustamante’s colorful universe of capitals and mattress stripes, contemporary umbrellas and toile de Jouy.

Gionnot’s Bastide de Capelong in Provence

It is one of the most beautiful addresses in the Luberon, set in the middle of fields of lavender and olive trees, with its Mediterranean gardens designed by Atelier Lamarck and a magnificent view of the hilltop village of Bonnieux. The most luxurious address of the small charming Beaumier group has completed the last phase of work organized by the architectural firm Jaune. In total, another 41 keys or 57 rooms and suites, and the first spa in the Provençal building, which now houses the Roman and cryogenic baths, hammam and treatment protocols in collaboration with the expert cosmetology house of Biologique Recherche. Epicureans, lovers of wood-burning cuisine and typically Provençal repertoire, sit at the table of the young chef Mathieu Guivarch, who takes over La Bergerie, a new building designed as a cozy café. For a more gastronomic experience, it is star chef Noël Bérard (past Les Crayères, Reims and Petit Nice, Marseille) who returns to sublimate the terroir; a more spontaneous vision of gastronomy. A place designed as a small town with a fountain, cafe and bookstore.
