Located in Ramatuelle just outside the bustle of central Saint Tropez, Muse is an idyllic retreat perfect for those seeking laid-back, uninterrupted luxury.

Pan Dei Palais
Situated at the beating heart of the action, Pan Dei Palais is a stone’s throw from the coastal town’s famous lanes, harbour and beaches. The historic building, which dates back to 1835, has a striking mustard façade dotted with white shutters, and exotic interiors inspired by its storied past: the building is said to have been built by a French army general for an Indian princess. With just 12 rooms and suites, guests will feel right at home at this coveted central St. Tropez spot.
