We finished our time in Cannes and drove back to one of our new favorite places in the world- St. Tropez! We’d only been away for 3 days but couldn’t wait to get back and spend a few days at Hôtel Byblos- one of the most iconic hotels on the Côte d’Azur and the famed celebrity playground frequented by the likes of Grace Kelly, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio and Beyoncè. As soon as you step foot on the property, it’s easy to see why the stars have paid homage for more than 50 years- it’s pure, luxurious perfection. Not the kind of luxury that makes you afraid to touch the furniture (though every single detail is stunning and perfectly thought out)- but the kind of luxury that makes you feel so welcomed and cared for that you want to return again and again.
The location is wonderfully situated just on the edge of the center of town, so whether you want to get your shopping fix around St. Tropez’s legendary streets, walk to the beach, or just wander the narrow alleys of the old town, you only have to head a few minutes in any direction. With that said- Byblos was built to emulate a village within a village, so you would never have to leave the hotel if you didn’t want to. Multiple dining outlets (like celebrity chef Alain Ducasse’s Rivea at Byblos), gorgeous suites, a spa, an art gallery and the infamous Les Caves du Roy nightclub are just a few of the [many] things that Byblos has to offer, and we’re already itching to get back here again soon!
There’s so much about our stay at this legendary hotel that we want to share, so we’re gonna take you with us through « A day at Hotel Byblos »!
