La Pinede’s tradition of glamour
Elegance a la Saint Tropez…
The Residence de la Pinede was born in 1936, at a period when Saint Tropez, was still a picturesque little fishing village, and hadn’t yet become a world famous summer resort.
Our hotel, situated on the plage de la Bouillabaisse, at the entry to Saint Tropez, is distinguished by the quality of its welcome, its swimming pool and above all its private beach. The place owes its name to the pretty pine grove which acts as a setting.
It wasn’t until the 1950’s and 60’s that Saint Tropez, until then a simple seaside resort, became a fashionable bathing spot and made itself a real reputation.
A certain number of stars, among them Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Sheila, Françoise Hardy and the sex symbol Raquel Welch, all came together to put Saint Tropez on the map and the Residence de la Pinede in the limelight.
From the 1980’s onwards, Nicole and Jean-Claude Delion, the present owners, have been gradually instilling a spirit of excellence into this charming hotel which has earned it an affiliation to the institution Leading Hotels of the world.
