Under the shade of century-old olive trees and the air redolent with the fragrance of Pierre de Ronsard roses, the stage is set for an idyllic midday repast.

Terms & Conditions

Bonjour, and a warm welcome to Château Saint-Martin & Spa. Imagine, if you will, sitting among our 300-year-old olive grove and feeling the warmth of the sun. The only sounds will be nature itself. Or, occasionally, the distant splash of laughter from the outdoor pool. Or, if you prefer, picture yourself on our terrace overlooking the Côte d’Azur. The view, like many a guest, stretches gently into the warm waters of the French Riviera. Either image induces endless relaxation and there, you have the allure of our hotel. It is, quite possibly, the most peaceful and tranquil corner of France. Over the pages of this brochure, we unfold our story through numbers. Le 180°, for instance, is our new, bistro-style restaurant serving local produce and exquisite dishes. Each number begins to describe our service and amenities. Describe but not experience. That, thankfully, is the domain of a stay.

The Chateau Saint Martin & Spa has the most wonderful wine cellar in the rocks featuring thousands of bottles of fine wines and champagnes. Wine tasting for couples with our head Sommelier is a must. Guests Receive:
