One of the most incredible hotels in the South of France is Chateau Hotel de la Messardiere. The Chateau sits amid the pinewoods on a hillside overlooking the Bay of Saint-Tropez, the Ramatuelle vineyards, and the beaches of Pampelonne.

About the Chateau

The Hotel Chateau de la Messardiere boasts 70 newly-remodeled bedrooms and 45 suites, along with an intriguing history. Originally built in the 19th century as a wedding gift for a French cavalry officer, the family home fell into disrepair and there are rumors of a few ghosts who visit the property.

The Chateau was renovated in 1989 and reopened as an Anglo-Moorish 19th century Chateau. Gerald Hardy became general manager in 1993 and added the final touches to the restoration.

The warm sunny colors of gold, yellow, and orange, the terra cotta walls, lively paintings by Victoire de la Messardiere, and the natural lighting makes this one of the most welcoming luxury hotels anywhere.


The Chateau offers a 24-hour shuttle to Saint-Tropez’s town center and to the private Tropezina Beach. Just a 3-minute ride from the hotel, the private beach is ideal for swimming, sun bathing, and water sports.
