Hidden amongst the trees and forests of the Trois Vallees ski slopes is the Refuge de la Traye, which offers guests the chance to escape and recharge. More than just an Alpine retreat, it represents the perfect marriage between luxury and beauty, thanks to the magnificent landscape outside, the sumptuous chalets and superlative service. Made from natural materials indigenous to the region (stone, larch wood, flagstones, etc.), the Refuge de la Traye, which was built in 1982, has retained all of the soul of a traditional mountain refuge. Today, it consists of three chalets interlinked by an interior corridor, as well as two independent chalets. Able to host a maximum of 19 people, guests relish the peace and privacy of it in summer and winter.
Accessible on foot, by electric car, helicopter, snowmobile or even on horseback from Les Allues, the Refuge de la Traye is completely protected from the noise and rush of the outside world. Like all retreats, guests come here to reconnect with the beauty of nature and create memories they want to hold onto. An immersion in the simple pleasures of life is guaranteed! And visitors of any age will delight in the grazing animals outside, and want to learn about the beehives installed around the estate. A range of activities are on offer – pick and choose according to age and interest, and find new ways of passing the day in total happiness.

The Pan Deï Palais is a historic country mansion house and it stands just a stone’s throw from the Place des Lices, the beating heart of Saint-Tropez, and only a few steps away from the bustle of the colourful Saint-Tropez harbour.
All the locals know this famous and grand palatial home as well as the legends which are part of its heritage.
Decorated so as to perpetuate the love story between an Indian princess and a French army general, the Pan Deï Palais is an intimate and luxurious family home with all the exotic charms of an Indian Palais steeped in history.
From the 25thof June, the Pan Deï Palais will be transformed, thanks to an entirely renovated ground floor. Sleek lines, magnificent materials, Eastern design and stone floors will come together to create a new ambiance for the property, behind the unchanging and iconic facade. The refurbished entrance and the completely redesigned garden, as well as the legendary DolceVa restaurant helmed by Marco Garfagnini, combine to create the Pan Deï Palace’s dazzling new look, inviting guests on a luxurious trip to India.

Overlooking the legendary bay of Pampelonne and close to the Place des Lices – which is in the heart of Saint-Tropez – sits the Château de la Messardière. This calming hotel boasts some of the most beautiful views in the Mediterranean. Perched on a hill above 10 hectares of pine forest, the enchanting gardens of the hotel are filled with gentle light and competing scents that pay tribute to the golden age of the Riviera. In 2020, this iconic address joined the LOV Hotel Collection and began its first extensive renovation, planned over three winters.
From 2021, it will be part of the prestigious collection of Airelles hotels and exceptional houses. Once it is completed, it will be home to 75 beautiful rooms and suites designed to recreate the luxury and sense of relaxation inherent to the Mediterranean lifestyle. Between the long, cool pool, the brand-new Valmont Spa, the boutiques and the wonderful Children's Kingdom, guests will be tempted to spend their days inside this haven of happiness. And yet ... a few minutes away is the Jardin Tropézina beach, a private strip of sand for guests of the Chateau de la Messardière, set on the mythical beach of Pampelonne. This is what a summer paradise is made of, with long lazy days spent together with family or friends in the chic and legendary spirit of the Côte d'Azur.

In the heart of Provence, nestling on the southern slopes of the Alpilles lies the Château d’Estoublon, steeped like the surrounding region in the Roman legacy, of which it guards some vestiges. . Located in that privileged area, Château d’Estoublon has perpetuated the tradition of exceptional olive oils and wines crafted with passion since 1731. Starting this summer, La Table d'Estoublon®, by Chef Wim Van Gorp, will unveil a cuisine of yesteryear revisited with Provencal influences. On the plate, local, fresh and quality products that sublimate the classics of the terroir.
Between tenderness and whims, poetry and demands, the Château spreads its wings over 1500 m2. Twenty-two rooms, ten bedrooms and suites. And none that resembles the other. Here in this kingdom that is off the palace road, exoticism is time, time to do or not to do anything...
