The neighbourhood

The restored nineteenth-century castle is located on a hill beside Saint Tropez and offers incomparable panoramic views.

The pool

The hotel has both indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, a fitness centre and a large luxury spa facility. They also have their own private beach club on the coast of the Mediterranean.

The Bar

The chateau bar and its terrace offer a delightful setting for an aperitif or a romantic evening. The bar area has a seductive and astonishing blend of stained-glass cathedral windows, antique furniture and English wood panels, coupled with a fireplace and lounge-library. Whilst the terrace is the perfect choice for our deliciously warm summer evenings, the Bar Terrace's comfortable armchairs and couches bordering the pool invite guests to simply let go and revel in the soothing vista of Saint-Tropez's starry nights.

The Restaurant

The gourmet restaurant at the hotel is the L'Acacia restaurant. This restaurant serves refined and creative Mediterranean-style cuisine in a truly exceptional ambience. The restaurant's vast terrace offers sweeping views over the beaches of Pampelonne. The poolside restaurant, A Ciel Ouvert, offers a selection of grilled fish and meats, salads, club sandwiches and dishes of the day. Here you can enjoy a light snack or linger over a full meal.

Visitor comments

  • "The Chateau exudes a grandiose, old world charm with a fairytale twist provided by beautiful art and detailed ironwork all over the hotel." - Trip Advisor
  • "Amazing location in beautiful grounds and scenic ocean views. Outstanding and friendly service, with a fabulous concierge with astonishing knowledge of what to see, where to eat. The mixture of venetian and provincial décor might be overpowering for some in its brightness but the rooms and bathrooms are beautiful. Stunning spa and swimming pools." - Trip Advisor
