St Tropez’s Garden of Eden
Set on the silky sands of St Tropez’s Pampelonne Beach, Jardin Tropezina beckons with its sweeping sea views, stylish at-one-with-nature aesthetic and fresh Mediterranean fare.
St Tropez devotees are likely to remember this in-demand address as Tropezina Beach, but since undergoing a transformation in early 2019, the beach club has a new name to match its new look.
The new incarnation is part of Château de la Messardière, a five-star hotel just a few hundred metres away. Yet it is still easily accessible for those on a South of France yacht charter; luxury yacht-goers can simply anchor their superyacht in the bay before being transported via tender to the beach club's private jetty.
Oversized day beds upholstered in cream and pastel stripes are spread across the white sands, tempting relaxation and offering marvellous panoramas out to sea. Cabanas draped in opaque fabrics are available too, perfect for sunbathers seeking out a more private place to unwind.
In keeping with the natural surrounds is a bar area and dining terrace made of sun-bleached woods. Matching tables and chairs are looked over by a trellis entwinned with luscious vines and fairy lights that glow when the sun goes down to create a magical garden effect.
Jardin Tropezina has a menu to match its laid-back, contemporary vibe and respect for nature. Mediterranean and Provencal dishes are meticulously prepared by an Adriana Gilly-led team of chefs using fresh and seasonal ingredients as well as products from local artisans and craftsman.
There is also an emphasis on home-cooked cuisine, whether it’s one of the sharing platters (pick from either Italian, seafood, charcuterie or garden) or one of the ‘iconic dishes’, such as creamy ravioli of Romans, classic beet tartare or mussels served in beurre blanc. Vegetarians are also well-catered for here, as are those with a sweet-tooth; the deserts are hard to turn down.
