If you like the range of services you get in a hotel but also want the privacy of a villa, you can now have both with Villazzo’s VillaHotels. One of the most glamorous is VillaHotel Village, a new property in St Tropez designed to fit in with its ancient surroundings. Close to the market, shops, port, bars and restaurants, it is also a great escape, with a private garden and pool, a well-equipped farm-house kitchen, a huge lounge and seven very chic bedrooms.
Red Carpet Factor: all manner of services and staff can be provided on request, including your own personal barman. Too shopped-out to mix your own martini? Just call, and a true professional will whiz over, cocktail shaker in hand.
The damage: VillaHotel Village costs from €2,840 (£2,028) per night, on a four-bedroom basis. Personal bar staff cost €40-50 (£28-35) per hour (00 33 49 454 8735; villazzo.com).
