Saint-Tropez Luxury Accommodations at Althoff Hôtel Villa Belrose
During my most recent business trip to Saint-Tropez, I was honored to be part of Leonardo DiCaprio’s annual gala and celebrity auction at the Domaine Bertaud Belieu vineyard. The event helped raise funds for the DiCaprio Foundation which researches solutions to restore balance to our earth’s ecosystems. Despite the countless meetings and networking events revolving around the gala and benefit, it was a welcome relief to know that my itinerary included a stay at the luxurious Althoff Hotel Villa Belrose where stars like Lana Del Rey and John Legend are known to stay.
The Althoff Hotel Villa Belrose, which is inspired by a Florentine Villa, is situated on one of the hills of Gassin on the Côte d’Azur, surrounded by lush garden landscapes. It is only a few minutes away from the center of Saint-Tropez and offers spectacular views of the picturesque harbor. The rooms and suites at the Althoff Hotel Villa Belrose are represented in a modern take of the Saint-Tropez spirit and charm of the 50s and 60s, as demonstrated in charming black and white photos taken by Schlessselman.
When it comes to being pampered, the hotel offers a rejuvenating beauty center where professionals are available to fulfill your every need whether it’s a quick manicure or a relaxing body massage. Or you can enjoy the comforts of a muscle-relaxing soak in the heated outdoor pool.
A recent article in Haute Living boasts about the hotel’s cuisine, “Be sure to visit Villa Belrose, […] and make a reservation at its famed restaurant, Le Belrose, where you can try Michelin-starred Chef Pietro Volontè’s finest offerings of Mediterranean cuisine.”
And, it goes without saying, but one of the most important aspects of any hotel is their service.
There is nothing more welcoming at a hotel than personnel and staff that know exactly what you need before you even ask for it. In this case, Robert Van Straaten, the general manager of this exceptional establishment, went above and beyond my expectations. His warm and elegant manners, along with his attention to detail, made my stay extra special.
Make sure to keep The Althoff Hotel Villa Belrose in mind next time you’re in Saint-Tropez. I guarantee you’ll have a wonderful experience.
