5. White 1921 Room 5

I’ve walked many times by the White 1921 hotel in Saint-Tropez but I never dared to set foot past its tall white doors. The immaculate hotel located on the mythical place de Lices offers eight rooms and suites as well as a terrasse lounge bar designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte. The glass back-lit bar looks pretty amazing and boasts some very exclusive cocktails. Provided you spared a few bucks during the year, there’s a full cellar of superior champagnes that can be tasted by the glass! A limited number of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection 1921 bottles, the year the mansion was built, is also available for purchase. However, if, for any possible reason, you feel a bit reasonable, you can stick to the fresh-made tapas or the famous tarte tropézienne.

Sometimes, there is a thrill you can’t describe with words. You won’t come close to figuring out how intense and exciting a MotoGP race is before you live it from the inside. I was fortunate to get full access to the Ducati racing team for the Le Mans MotoGP race a few days ago. Aside from the sheer beauty of the fierce competition that you can see on TV if you wander among the motor channels, there is an original blend of prestige and excitement in a racing team. Watch our exclusive, intrusive photo reportage at the heart of the Ducati racing team after the break!
