Airelles - Saint-Tropez

Château de La Messardière,
Icon of the French Riviera

Set within 13 idyllic hectares of parasol pines, cypress trees and fragrant jasmine, Château de La Messardière is a jewel of the Côte d'Azur. With spellbinding views revealed at every turn, let time stand still as you discover this exclusive oasis in the heart of Saint-Tropez.

Romance and the Roaring Twenties

Built as a spectacular wedding gift from a celebrated cavalry officer to his bride, this 19th-century palace has a thousand stories to tell. From these romantic beginnings, to the glamorous Gatsby-esque parties of the 1920s and on to the Château's final transformation into a magnificent sea-view hotel, the Château de La Messardière has long played a starring role in Saint-Tropez's rich history.
