Wallpaper* Design Awards 2011
Located in a peaceful corner of the Côte d'Azur, La Réserve is a world away from the buzz of neighbouring Saint-Tropez. Architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte's transformation of the 1970s structure has not diluted the modernist magic of the original building. Wilmotte has simply reconfigured it, and reclothed it in a sandier hue. The 16 suites and seven regular rooms are superb; all have a terrace or a herb-filled garden. The ochre and white interiors, with furniture by Hans Wegner, Flexform and B&B Italia, among others, are designed around the Mediterranean view - even the bathtubs look out to sea. But the hotel's real trump card is its spa, which boasts 1,000 sq m of light-filled space.
Chemin de la Quessine, Ramatuelle
