La Pinede Plage is that rarest of beasts, a good quality French Riviera hotel that is also good value (relative to the competition).

Harriet, Kate L and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

Sister property of the neighbouring 5* Chateau de Valmer, the 4* Pinede Plage has 32 rooms and suites within a few yards of the private Gigaro Beach on the south side of the St Tropez peninsula.

The rooms are relatively basic but tastefully decorated and have balconies looking out over either the gardens or the sea, and some have bunk beds so cater perfectly for families.

The hotel swimming pool overlooks the private beach and the sea beyond, with views to the aptly named Iles d'Or beyond. Guests can make use of the hotel's windsurfers and pedaloes, or play tennis.

La Pinede restaurant has a large teak terrace also overlooking the beach, but guests can also choose to eat breakfast on their balcony. The speciality for lunch and supper is Mediterranean, with an emphasis on fresh fish. The terrace also has a bar for evening drinks.

One of the additional benefits of staying at La Pinede Plage is having access to some of the facilities at the Chateau de Valmer, including the spa which has a sauna, a jacuzzi, a fitness centre and a beauty shop. Massages and other treatments are also available.
