Arguably Saint Tropez’s most luxurious hotels was celebrating last month after one of its chefs was awarded a third Michelin star for the culinary masterpieces that he creates in its five star restaurant.
Talented chef Arnaud Donckele was awarded the prestigious accolade for his work in La Vague d’Or, La Residence de Pinede’s world-class restaurant and a favorite amongst clients staying in our St Tropez villas.
The coveted award is the highest possible prize given to a restaurant in France by the Michelin brothers, who publish The Michelin Guide – the ‘bible’ to good eating across the world.
The Michelin star system was introduced in 1993 by Andre and Edouard Michelin and is given to a small number of restaurants of outstanding quality. One star indicates “very good cuisine in its category”; two stars represent “excellent cuisine, worth a detour”; and a rare three stars are awarded to restaurants offering “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey”.
There are only 27 three star restaurants in France – and only 81 in the world – so why not spoil yourself when on holiday in one of our exclusive St Tropez House villas and make a reservation at La Vague d’Or for a gastronomical feast to remember?
However, those staying in a luxury villa in Saint Tropez are more than spoiled for choice when it comes to deciding on which Michelin star restaurant they dine in as there are more than six within a 30 minute drive.
