La Ponche
Saint Tropez, Côte d'Azur, France

La Ponche

La Ponche is a new boutique hotel with a restaurant and cool-designed rooms right in the heart of the old port of Saint-Tropez. A small Piaggio takes you one minute away to the cove that the hotel overlooks. At the piano bar, where Boris Vian's trumpet and Bardot's laughter resounded, people dance to the rhythm of French songs.
