Location: Overlooking the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, the Château de la Messardière is situated in the heart of an elegant Mediterranean hillside park of 25 acres. The superb château hotel is nevertheless close to the harbour and beaches, but far enough away from the noise, the crowds and the legendary liveliness of Saint-Tropez. Yet, it is only two minutes to the heart of Saint-Tropez by car or free 24 hours hotel shuttle service, and only one minute to the beach. The closest private jet airport is La Môle (15 km) or Nice / Cote d'Azur International Airport (90 km), which can be reached by helicopter in 20 minutes, taxi or rental car. For those preferring the train, the closest train Station is Saint- Raphaël (35 km). When you come by car make sure you have a proper road map or navigation system as the Château de la Messardière is not easy to find, which also has its advantages.
History: Château de la Messardière is a folly of a French Chateau with some light Arabic design elements to enhance it. The French artist Victoire de la Messardière was born in Bouches-du-Rhône. Saint-Tropez was where her ancestors' castle is situated and which has now been converted into a grand hotel, but carries her family's name today. Her own works of art create a unique character and give a special highlight to the interior of the beautiful château.
