Dreaming Of St Tropez?

If your Corona dreaming has taken you as far as the French Riviera then dream on just a little longer and your flights of fancy may soon come true!

Maisons Pariente, a luxury collection of family-owned French hotels, is preparing to welcome guests to two of its newly refurbished five- star hotels in Provence and Saint-Tropez as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Hotel Lou Pinet in Saint-Tropez and Crillon le Brave are due to open this Summer following extensive refurbishments, showcasing a refreshed look for the summer season.

Each property in the Maisons Pariente portfolio has been carefully designed to create a bespoke, distinctive identity in each location. The family’s personalised approach results in each property resembling private houses rather than hotels and allows guests to relax and recharge as they would at home in exceptional settings.

Hotel Lou Pinet, Saint-Tropez
Boasting original bohemian Saint-Tropez charm, the five-star Hotel Lou Pinet is located five minutes from the Place de Lices, offering guests 34 spacious bedrooms and suites bathed in natural light with private gardens, the popular Beefbar Restaurant, two bars, a Tata Harper Spa and a large emerald green swimming pool privately concealed away from the lively surroundings of Saint-Tropez.

Soon to be opened for the second season following the hotel’s premier opening in June 2019, guests can once again look forward to enjoying an intimate hideaway that echoes the vintage Saint-Tropez spirit of the 60’s and 70’s created especially by French architect, interior decorator and designer Charles Zana.

Nightly rates at Hotel Lou Pinet start from 430 Euros on a bed & breakfast basis. For reservations and information visit email or call +33 4 94 97 04 37

Hotel Crillon le Brave, Provence
Following its annual closure and full redevelopment, the five-star Hotel Crillon le Brave is also set to re-open its doors to guests in early Summer. Nestled within a village eponymous of the Vaucluse region, the hotel offers guests 34 rooms and suites, all refreshed for the new season.

The hotel reception area, public spaces and outdoor pool overlooking surrounding vineyards and picture-perfect Provençal countryside have also been exquisitely presented with the help of French designer and decorator Charles Zana.

Nightly rates at Hotel Crillon Le Brave start from 350 Euros on a bed & breakfast basis. For reservations and information visit email or call + 33 4 90 65 61 61
