Culture & History
In Byblos, Lebanon in 1960, founder of the hotel, Jean-Prosper Gay-Para, admitted his infatuation with Brigitte Bardot and his desire to build "a palace worthy of the Thousand and One Nights, unique in its kind, from one side of the Mediterranean to the other." With utter success, the doors of Byblos have been crossed by an array of the astoundingly rich and the truly celebrated - including Bardot herself, Cher, and Mick Jagger, for his honeymoon, to name just a few. Meanwhile in glamorous St-Tropez, the gracefully converted 16th-century chapel, Musée de l'Annociade, showcases an impressive collection of modern art, whilst the Citadelle de St-Tropez was built in 1602 to defend the coast against Spain.
