The White 1921 hotel in Saint-Tropez is a mini white chateau of calm, beyond its tall blanc doors there are only 8 rooms and suites but all are cool and snowy white. The hotel is nestled on the stylish Place des Lices and was bought by LVMH in 2012, an off-the-radar address that even some guests don’t realise is owned by LVMH. Even the terrasse bar, designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, has white sunshades and double seat cushions ranged under a under a manicured pine tree. As befits a hotel in the South of France there’s a full cellar of champagnes that can be tasted by the glass. For those wanting a superior souvenir to take home a limited number of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection 1921 bottles, the year the mansion was built, are available for purchase. The sister property ski hotel - White 1921 Courchevel - has polar bear white faux fur seats in the rooms and white modernist stag heads on the dining room walls.
