This hotel is perfectly located in the village centre and the staff is wonderful. We stayed in room #19 which is so peaceful with the calming sound of waves during the night. Best choice inside of the village, I think :-D

This is the hotel nearest to perfection in any discipline a customer would require - not only a la cote d' azure - but anywhere. We always feel at home - quite far away from home . We' be back soon ! Kindest regards to Mme Duckstein & many thanks to all the staff, RB & F.v.W.

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.

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.

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.
