THE STORY: L’Epi, the emblematic hotel on the Pampelonne beach in Saint Tropez, has lost count of the number of stars who have passed through its doors (Audrey Hepburn, Juliette Greco, Madonna) since it first opened in… 1959. Times have changed but you’ll still discover the same ‘50s bohemian beach vibes in its ten cabanas, which were divinely decorated by Italian designer Monica Damonte: white paneled walls, colorful window frames, wicker furniture, sisal rugs and vintage ceramics. It’s all in perfect harmony with the magnificent Mediterranean garden landscaped by Madison Cox. Starting at €750 a night (!), with private terraces, a clay tennis court, a huge swimming pool and a pétanque court included.
