Trop it like its hot

Saint-Tropez’s Hotel de Paris has attracted attention since the rich and famous first passed through its doors in the 1930s.

Like many visitors to the town, it has had a serious facelift, and it will reopen this spring. Interior designer Sybille de Margerie has woven metallic threads of gold, silver, orange, purple and turquoise throughout, much like she did at the Hot-Listed Mandarin Oriental Paris.

The best bit – a glass-bottomed rooftop pool – hangs above the atrium. Next to it is an equally glamorous lounge bar which serves Champagne, sushi and caviar. The French restaurant, Le Suffren Cafe, is headed up by Chef Georges Blanc, whose name-sake restaurant in Vonnas has three Michelin stars. Inside is all high-shine silver and gold; outdoors is a terrace planted with olive trees and herbs.
