Introducing Mauro Governato

Join us in the Saint-Tropez sunshine as Mauro Governato, General Manager of Château de La Messardière, tells us more about this mythic palace and its sister property, the Pan Deï Palais.

How do you create connections between Château de La Messardière and the Pan Deï Palais?

Our two Saint-Tropez hotels are complementary. They share, among other things, the private beach Jardin Tropézina, transportation in our Mini Moke or Rolls-Royce, as well as the iconic amenities of the Château de La Messardière resort, such as the Valmont Spa or the Airelles Summer Camp for kids. Our guests can also savor the richness of the culinary offerings from both properties. While they maintain a strong and distinct identity, there is a true harmony between them.

What's new to discover this summer?

You will discover a new restaurant concept at the Pan Deï Palais, where Chef Antonio Oresta invites guests to experience “Les Délices du Pan Deï,” exploring local cuisine elevated with subtle Indian influences that delight both the eyes and taste buds. There’s no fixed menu, only the chef’s suggestions based on his inspirations and market-fresh ingredients.

At Château de La Messardière, esthetic medicine specialist INNERSKIN makes its debut at the spa, and children will be delighted to explore an educational farm on the estate. Not to mention our new rooms and suites, some with private gardens and others with pools.

Your latest favorite in the region?

For rejuvenating amidst nature’s heart, I often recommend our guests take a stroll towards Cap Taillat. It offers spectacular viewpoints with absolutely magical lighting.

Why is Saint-Tropez such an iconic destination? How does it renew itself every season?

Saint-Tropez is a multifaceted destination. There are the beaches and the sea, of course, but also hiking, markets, museums, restaurants, bars, and more. The possibilities are endless. Every year, the town offers new experiences to holidaymakers. That’s why Saint-Tropez is one of the most sought-after places in the world every summer!
