I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the La Ponche. The hotel is well situated in the centre of Saint-Tropez but set a little back from the bustling main streets. The room was very well equipped, clean and spacious. Our room had a great roof terrace with wonderful views of the sea and clocktower. The hotel's restaurant is also excellent. I... More

Having visited St. Tropez a few times over the past decade, I had never stayed "in the center" though did this time. Hotel La Ponche is in an incredible location, within steps of shopping and restaurants (theirs is excellent by the way). Contrary to a few postings I've seen regarding the staff, I found them to be truly five star.... More

The hotel is extremely well located and though the access with a car makes it only possible if you are an experienced driver the hotel manages to help you dealing with this issue. The staff very warm and efficient. The restaurant incredible. They made us reservations on many other places and were friendly and courteous. The room was large and... More

What a beautiful place, with beautiful history! I was awestruck as soon as I was whisked into my room. There was a wow moment when I walked into the pastel duck egg coloured little piece of heaven. I fell in love with it immediately. The room was generously sized. The double sink in the bathroom is sumptuous. The golden taps... More

The service and attention to detail are top notch at the Hotel De La Ponche. The quality of the hotel is clear and at all times we felt very well taken care of. The central location of Hotel De La Ponche provides easy walking access to all the St. Tropez sites. Do NOT make the mistake of trying to drive... More

A hidden gem and great escape from the bedlam of the waterfront. Staff were super coping with our somewhat understated arrival in hiking boots and backpacks as though that was the norm in their establishment! The relaxed ambience and 'family run' feel to the place was something of an antidote to the glitz of the superyachts in the harbour.

I've tried other venues at St Tropez for the last decade or so but at the end I always return to my favorite La Ponche. They simply represent the unequivocally epitome of unassuming comfortless-without breaking the bank-.

Once you stay at this place you will always want to come back. Time appears to have frozen here. Traditional, historical, authentic, and so homey. Thank you Simone Duckstein for keeping the place intact and for being such a great host! It is a pleasure to return here every summer.

Dear Eugene B, How charming of you ! You pointed out exactly what La Ponche represents in your advice on Tripadvisor on the 13 of January 2016. "So homey" and this is very rare, "traditional, historical, authentic", near the water in the heart of the old village, with the sand and the sea at your feet, near everything and away... More
