view web site ›'s insider take:

One of the few hotels in St. Tropez that's actually on the sea, the intimate La Ponche has an artistic, intellectual ambience: It was a favorite of actress Romy Schneider and writer Françoise Sagan. And with its reputation for discretion and appealing simplicity, it still attracts the César-winning crowd—Catherine Deneuve more so than the starlet of the week (except when Kylie Minogue visited). There are 18 rooms and suites in the main building; request one of the six with private terraces, which have wonderful views of the sea and are big enough to serve as a perch for bronzing, napping, or reading outside of the public eye. Otherwise book one of the two junior suites in a former guard tower across the plaza. The restaurant serves piquant Provençal dishes, including a fine fish soup and sea bass cooked with branches of wild fennel. And though there's no pool, the public beach of La Ponche, directly at the property's front, is a better alternative. Speaking of art history, a scene from And God Created Woman was shot there.
