Maisons Pariente

Lou Pinet

...Back to where it
all began

The love affair between the Pariente family and the peninsula is a long one that started with the grandparents. Passed down through the generations, the family tradition has faithfully continued.


Bewitched by the place to this day, the Pariente family took over the Hotel Lou Pinet in 2017, completely transforming it with the ultimate dream team. Charles Zana and François Vieillecroze for the architecture, landscaper Jean Mus for the gardens and BeefBar's Riccardo Giraudi for the restaurant. In love with the south in general and the French Riviera in particular, the team members have joined forces to reinvent the Hotel Lou Pinet as they would a private home where friends gather for a different take on Saint-Tropez. The real one.

Suites & Rooms

There’s not a soulless magnetic card to be found among the hotel’s 34 keys – you'll be given a real one just like the good old days. Hotel Lou Pinet’s rooms and suites are like the rooms of a beautiful Saint-Tropez house that you would share with friends.

Charle Zana, ARCHITECT

Architect, interior decorator and designer, Charles Zana inherited his acute artistic sensibility from his art collector father. Charles has gone on to create numerous private homes worldwide, often for collectors.

Steeped in Mediterranean culture, the southern native has a particular fondness for Saint-Tropez where he often spends his holidays. At the Hotel Lou Pinet, Charles designed the spaces and passages around light to bring sophistication and intimacy to the forefront He also drew on Provence's tremendous decorative arts heritage, from glass to ceramic, nourished by artists such as Matisse, Calder and Picasso – they too captivated by the beauty of the South of France. With his culture and taste for elegance, the Hotel Lou Pinet decor features numerous period pieces from this era.

François Vieillecroze,
The St. Tropez architect

A family man and architect, Francois Vieillecroze works as a family, with his daughter, son and about 20 others. He was the perfect choice for the Pariente family, who called on him to supervise the building’s architectural transformation.

A local character for decades, François is known for the many projects on the Côte d’Azur, but also for his love for Saint-Tropez, whose beauty and architectural consistency he passionately defends. An expert in the constraints of urban planning and committed to preserving the exceptional heritage on the peninsula, he managed the renovation project of Lou Pinet on both the administrative and creative levels. Thanks to his knowledge of Saint-Tropez, the project perfectly meets the particular requirements of a largely protected historic site. François Vieillecroze successfully optimised what already existed and modernised the architecture in keeping with the spirit of the place. Thanks to him, the transformation of the building’s façade and the hotel is in total harmony with the original St. Tropez spirit.
