Since the outset, celebrities have been seen here who come in search of tranquillity
Helmut Newton, César Baldaccini, a close friend of her grandfather, a handful of big names in the fashion world… and then Roman Polanski, who also mentions it in his book Roman: « Invited onto the jury of the 1968 Cannes Film Festival, I took Sharon to Saint-Tropez in my red Ferrari that I had had brought over by boat from Los Angeles. We spent a few peaceful days at Hôtel La Figuière. »
Whether famous or not, guests all feel wonderful at the route de Tahiti hotel, the place that some think of as their holiday home – but an even better version: “They don’t have to do anything here, just sit back and be pampered! We try to make their stay as pleasant as possible… within reason!” Hairdressers, massages, pedicures, car or bicycle rental, the sense of service is part of the spirit of the house.
« We have preserved the authentic and comfortable style of the house – Salernes tiles, patina chests of drawers, cotton fabrics – while introducing some more modern touches, in particular Philippe Starck’s Masters and Ghost chairs. ».
Delicious home-cooked cuisine
At lunchtime and in the evening, chef André Fumat, who has held the position for 21 years, proposes delicious home-cooked meals, knows how the regulars like their food and cooks fish to perfection. The rosé served alongside his dishes comes from the Tropez wine estate, run by Grégoire Chaix, Cécile’s brother. All of this is served by the pool and in the park, in the shade afforded by the one-hundred-year-old mulberry trees.
It is said that some guests would like time to stand still
so that they can keep on enjoying the calm and serenity under the fig trees…
