Recently, the Côte d’Azur has seen the emergence of new addresses that bring back the charm of the French Riviera’s past. A gentle, local lifestyle, far from the bling of recent tourism. La Tartane is an ode to this return to simplicity.
Between the village and the mythical beaches of Saint-Tropez, lies this seaside hotel remodeled by Jordane Arrivetz, founder of the Notoire agency. Like a Provencal hamlet, the establishment is composed of small houses with 27 rooms surrounded by a garden with Mediterranean scents. The interior decoration reflects the environment: warm and natural. Wood, stone and rattan are in the spotlight and celebrate the craftsmanship of the region. Wall murals, designed by Brazilian artist João Incerti, poetically complete the design of each space. With custom-made furniture or objects found by antique dealer Julie Barrau, the place rightly combines the spirit of a family home with the services of a five-star hotel. The same goes for Saint-Amour, the restaurant. Open to the sky, next to the swimming pool, it extends the Mediterranean art of living with, on the menu, Provencal cuisine with Asian touches by the chef, Master Koy.
With elegance and simplicity, the La Tartane hotel brings a breath of fresh air to the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.
