The transformation of an iconic Château into a Palace in Saint-Tropez

Treat yourself to the height of luxury and refinement with a stay in a Saint-Tropez Palace. This exclusive Airelles Château property has a stunning view of Pampelonne Bay and promises you an exceptional time.

Château de La Messardière, the famous Saint-Tropez landmark in all its splendour

Offering everything you could want from a Saint-Tropez summer, this picturesque region of the south of France is one of the most popular holiday destinations because of its unique and authentic atmosphere.

Both chic and informal, Saint-Tropez is known around the world for its way of life, its legendary port and its colourful alleyways. Within this setting, Château de La Messardière is nestled in the hills, surrounded by the Ramatuelle vineyards. Built in the 19th century, the Château is an integral part of the village, with a coat of arms dating back to 1660 and centuries of history in the local heritage.

The Château was originally a wedding gift given to Officer Henry Brisson de La Messardière and his wife, artist Louise Dupuy D’Angeac, before becoming a hotel in 1904. It was very popular with the Parisian Aristocracy looking for a French Riviera base during the Roaring Twenties.

Château de La Messardière is today an iconic Côte d’Azur Palace, elegant, refined and a haven of peace.

Stay in a Saint-Tropez Palace with a stunning view

Reimagined as a high-end resort, our luxury hotel offers you an authentic experience with a decidedly Saint-Tropez style, featuring 86 rooms and suites spread across the Château and the Belvédère. This Saint-Tropez Palace is set in 12 hectares of Provencal-scented grounds, shaded by pines and ancient olive trees.

If you’re looking for tranquillity, relax by the Château’s majestic pool where you’ll be served cold drinks and ice creams. Sportier types will love our lane-swimming pool, a new sanctuary tucked away in the garden’s terracing, where you can swim lengths in peace and take in the view. It’s a picture-perfect setting in which to live the Mediterranean dream.

And the younger ones will be able to enjoy, in complete safety, the swimming pool reserved for them at the Summer Camp, where swimming lessons are also offered.

A culinary paradise of dishes from Provence and beyond, designed by Airelles

To satisfy even the most demanding of palettes, our Saint-Tropez Palace has five exclusive on-site intimate and refined restaurants.

La Table de la Messardière, which serves a Mediterranean buffet in the morning and at lunchtime, and La Table d'Estoublon which offers an a la carte menu in the evening, has taken its place on the Château’s sublime terraces. On Sundays, you can enjoy a delicious Mediterranean brunch.

Fancy dining outside? Enjoy a Peruvian-Asian fusion menu at Matsuhisa Saint-Tropez as you admire the impressive view of Pampelonne and its famous golden-sand beach. And to complete your culinary experience, those who love antipasti and Italian dishes can book a table at Palladio.

Wellbeing and relaxation at the luxurious Valmont Spa

Enjoy some rejuvenating time in our Valmont Spa with gym and lush garden. This sublime wellbeing Eden of more than 1000m2 includes nine treatment rooms and an Iyashi Dome with private sauna and hammam. After your treatment, relax by the sumptuous indoor pool bathed in natural light. It’s a true oasis in which to let go and reconnect with yourself, far from the hustle and bustle of Saint-Tropez.

A Palace with exceptional experiences to enjoy as a family

No stay in Saint-Tropez is complete without a trip to the beach. Take a ride in a Mini-Moke jeep or a Rolls Royce Cullinan to sunbathe or enjoy lunch by the water at our private beach, Jardin Tropézina.

During your stay in Provence, take time to enjoy some of the best local food and wine with a tasting or a gourmet workshop organised by our hotel. On your return, hit some balls around the tennis court or challenge your loved ones to a game of boules under the shade of the pine trees. Your children will also enjoy themselves thanks to the many activities on offer at our Summer Camp.

You’ll leave with fantastic memories of time spent with your family in a prestigious Airelles Palace in Saint-Tropez.
