After having taken up residence in Paris’ Tuileries Garden, Loulou invested the iconic beach of Pampelonne on the Saint Tropez peninsula,, and set up his holiday home there. Here, he spreads his sweet fragrance of Dolce Vita from mid-June onwards.

He welcomes his friends with elegance, cheerfulness and lightness on the beach or in the summer dining room… In perfect harmony with the surroundings, Benoit Dargère, executive chef, offers a sunny, family and generous cuisine : dishes from the French and Italian Riviera with quality products from the south.

After the successes of Monsieur Bleu, Loulou Paris, Girafe and Perruche, the Gilles Malafosse & Laurent de Gourcuff duo unveils its new opus to Ramatuelle, in association with Jean-Philippe Cartier (H8 collection), the Officine d’Architecture agency for decoration and Derbez for vegetation.
