With the love of a Lebanese millionaire and Don Juan Prosper Guy Couple to a young actress. They say, for the sake of curiosity, he poisoned himself in a French fishing village on the Mediterranean coast to look at filming with the participation of a French actress. It will take a little time and the film “And God created the woman” will be considered a cult, Saint-Tropez from the village will become a place of attraction for celebrities and the world resort, and Brigitte Bardot, who played the main role in the film, will become a sex symbol of the era.
Millionaire’s love for the actress, despite long efforts and courtship, turned out to be unresponsive. And as a farewell gift, the Lebanese decided to build a hotel for Bardo in Saint-Tropez — a luxurious hotel, as if from a thousand and one night tales, and the only one of its kind in the whole Mediterranean. In 1967, in honor of the discovery of Byblos Saint-Tropez staged a grand three-day party with seven hundred famous guests and Mireille Dark and Brigitte Bardot in the “lead roles”. The star lodgers of Byblos Saint-Tropez needed to have fun somewhere, so in the same year, the nearby nightclubs Les Caves du Roy and Temple of Tropezian nights were opened next to the hotel. In 1971, they married and spent their honeymoon here Mick Jagger and his first wife, Bianca Perez. In 2009, the hotel received its fifth star. In 2013, Alain Ducasse opened his restaurant here, not the last person in the world gastronomy.
On the eve of the 50th anniversary of Byblos Saint-Tropez, 9 suites were completely renovated – the best designers worked on interior renewal. It features a spa and a heated outdoor pool. Those interested in French cuisine can take cooking courses here. By the way, Brigitte Bardot’s favorite dishes appeared in the restaurant menu, with which, in fact, it all started.
