Enjoy a peaceful break in glamorous Saint Tropez at Hotel Le Mandala
By KATIE ANN WISEMAN
Brigitte Bardot cavorted on the beaches of Saint Tropez in the ’50s and it is renowned as a playground for the rich and the famous. Located at the heart of the French Riviera, 100km West of Nice, St Tropez is one of the most famous resorts in Europe. Accessible by yacht, helicopter or car Saint Tropez is certainly no ordinary beachside resort.
It attracts a chic crowd looking for a glamorous getaway. Whether it is reality or a figment of your imagination, it really does feel like the sun shines brighter and the Mediterranean is unquestionably bluer in Saint Tropez.
The latest addition to the luxury accommodation on offer in this part of France is the Hotel Le Mandala Saint-Tropez, located just a four minute walk from Place des Lices in the heart of St Tropez. Here you can find Tropeziens playing boule under the 100 year old trees on non-market days.
The Hotel Le Mandala Saint-Tropez is a sophisticated and stylish contemporary boutique hotel, that offers a tranquil escape that provides peace and quiet only minutes away from the many bustling attractions St Tropez life has to offer.
With just 12 rooms, two of which are suites, each lavishly furnished with exquisite attention to detail and amenities such as a flat-screen TV, an iPod dock and a Nespresso coffee machine, you can be assured of maximum comfort during your stay.
Recently refurbished by owners Daniel and Jacqui the attention to detail and personal touches are evident throughout. The decor adds a special vibe, from the exquisite art work to the enormous beds and luxurious linen.
The slate and grey private bathrooms continue the effortless chic approach with rainfall showerheads, free standing bath tubs and Bvlgari designer toiletries.
During any visit to the South of France, time outdoors is a must. Each room offers a terrace or balcony with a view of the vineyard or the crystal blue swimming pool so you can make the most of the stunning surroundings.
Alfresco dining is an essential part of the ethos at this property. Le Petit Djeuner or breakfast is served on the terrace around the pool and is typically French and delicious, consisting of locally sourced croissants, tartine (a Baguette sliced lengthwise), with butter and jam, orange juice and cafe au lait.
The weather on the Cote d’Azur is pleasant all year round with little rainfall and no cold, snowy winters, which makes it an attractive destination for many months. In summer, the average temperature is 80 degrees Fahrenheit and Hotel Le Mandala is a desirable location at this time or during spring and autumn, when the heat fades.
If the draw of the private beach clubs such as Bagatelle and Club 55 on Pampelonne Beach, a 15 minute drive from Le Mandala are not your scene, the tranquil environment Le Mandala offers is hard to resist. Savour a glass of rose from the local Chateau De Marres whilst lounging pool side or watch the sunset from your private terrace and make the most of the delightful environment.
The Staff are discreet but always present to greet you with enthusiasm and offer local knowledge and guidance to make the most of your stay. The Hotel offers a private courtyard for parking and the 24-hour reception is always on hand to advise on activities in the surrounding area include fishing, canoeing, hiking and diving or recommend the best restaurants to wine and dine.
This new luxurious French Riviera hotel is a modern and contemporary accommodation that will ensure you have a most relaxing stay break in one of Europe’s most glitzy destinations.
