The Pan Deï Palais – the revival of an iconic hotel that reflects its Mediterranean history

Experience

In the heart of the village of Saint Tropez, sits Pan Deï Palais, in a unique setting, built out of love for the Indian princess of the same name. Today, the same aesthetic has been reinterpreted by interior decorator Christophe Tollemer. It reopens on June 25th, with a sleek design and a new high-end Italian catering concept. The ambiance is reminiscent of the surrounding Mediterranean – light and bucolic. The ideal place to get away from it all, Pan Deï Palais remains a Saint Tropez jewel in the Airelles crown.

New and more beautiful than ever

Clean lines, high-quality materials and Eastern prints – a new house will be uncovered behind this iconic ochre facade. From Pan Deï Palais lobby onwards, the decor is refined but also contemporary. Filled with rich materials such as oak, flannel, leather and embroidery, Pan Deï Palais’s embellishment is an important part of the decor. The sense of the exotic is subtle but important, transporting you to another time and place.

Outside, guests can immerse themselves in the Mediterranean again, in the lush garden filled with olive trees. The furniture reinforces the feeling of tranquillity, with its softness, its materials and its contours. At the edge of the swimming pool, dining areas have been set up with sun loungers, ensuring you enjoy all the fresh air of Saint-Tropez . A large relaxation area stretches out towards the property walls and – infusing it with the holiday spirit – a palm tree continues to watch over this Eden of Saint Tropez, a vintage tradition of the area.

The beauty of an Italian restaurant

Once located just nearby on Rue des Feniers, the Dolceva restaurant has now moved to a special place inside the property. Its interior architecture echoes that of the reception, including even the precious ‘Versailles’ parquet in solid oak. Comfort is further enriched by two stone fireplaces from the 16th century, the last amenity from when the hotel was open all year round. In the kitchen, Chef Gianluca Manzo gives the Palais a southern accent with a menu overseen by Marco Garfagnini. Over the years he has become famous for his ability to make Italian Cuisine in harmony with the Mediterranean environment. It is the ideal Saint-Tropez atmosphere to savour the Italian classics in, including antipasti, seafood and delicious sharing dishes. In the evening, Dolceva throws open its terrace doors to the outside.

“The best-kept secret on the Côte d’Azur will throw open its doors, offering all the charm and intimacy of a private house.”

Inside Airelles

A private villa

As of this summer, the best-kept secret on the Côte d’Azur will throw open its doors, offering all the charm and intimacy of a private house. Personalised service is guaranteed thanks to a team of 20 people who are dedicated to the property and its guests. From the concierge team to the talented Chef, guests will benefit from a complete experience (catering, accommodation, transfers) and enjoy an unforgettable stay.

An incomparable experience

This summer, we are also offering the “Rosé All Day ” experience. Spend a day at Château d’Estoublon, a sumptuous wine and olive-growing estate in Provence, which is opening its doors to all guests of Pan Deï Palais. Between visiting the estate, tasting wines and olive oils, accessing the Château’s services and activities, and enjoying a lunch at the estate’s new restaurant, La Table d’Estoublon by Wim Van Gorp, it’s something to remember.

Get All Way : the all-inclusive offer from Airelles

Experience

In each Airelles destination, the pleasure we get from making you happy is illustrated by the hundreds of small gestures we perform each day.

First, in Gordes. Here, all the delights of the property are hidden from view on the street, from where is no hint of the secret domain that awaits inside. Yet, it is in this majestic chateau that the pleasures of a well-deserved holiday can be savoured. These include breakfasts, lunches and dinners in any of the five restaurants found in both the hotel and the village, treatments at the Sisley Spa, a ride in a classic Citroën 2CV car, and many other delights that are now included with every reservation of more than three nights. A guarantee that any trip here will be magical.

Then, Saint-Tropez. From 2021 onwards, Château de la Messardière  will become part of the Airelles collection of hotels and exceptional maisons. But it is this summer that we have decided to offer each guest at the Chateau an incredible Saint-Tropez experience. Much like in La Bastide, visitors of more than five nights will enjoy a special offer including breakfasts, lunches and dinners in any of the hotel’s restaurants and affiliated establishments in the village, a treatment at Spa Valmont, and use of the loungers at the beach-side Jardin Tropézina.

This generous offer is made up of  two holiday essentials: delicious food and relaxation. Because with the “Get A(ll) Way” experience, everyone benefits all day long. *

Food

In Gordes, in each of the five restaurants associated with La Bastide, there are a range of flavours to be enjoyed. Beyond the great classics of southern cuisine, La Bastide offers a rare variety of culinary experiences. A breakfast on the terrace of the family suite? A gourmet food immersion in the Provencal region filled with the best local products at L’Orangerie? A dinner alone under the moonlight at the most coveted table in the La Citadelle Tower? No matter what time of day it is, your every gastronomic wish will be granted, thanks to this all-inclusive offer.

A little further south, sitting on the peninsula of Saint-Tropez, is a Mediterranean voyage worth savouring at Château de la Messardière. From Spain to Greece, and from Italy to Provence, the Chateau offers the very best flavours the region has to offer, which can be enjoyed in any of the restaurants on the estate. By the pool, at À Ciel Ouvert restaurant, on the south-facing terrace of Acacia, with your feet in the water at Jardin Tropezina, but also in the heart of the village thanks to new Italian restaurants, DolceVa and Zetta .

Relaxation

In Gordes as in Saint-Tropez, we take advantage of every moment of pure relaxation on offer at the Spa. Monastic and enchanting, the Sisley Spa at La Bastide is inspired by the architecture of the Sénanque Abbey and boasts refined architectural lines, spread over an elegant 16,000 square-feet.

Offering the ultimate in escapism, Sisley’s outdoor treatments allow guests to simultaneously relax and enjoy the landscape, thanks breath-taking view of the Luberon.

The Valmont Spa at Château de la Messardière offers 10,000 square-feet of pleasure, and has been fully renovated for this summer. Feel your stress slip away during a well-deserved, ultra-relaxing treatment in one of the seven cabins. Classic Valmont face and body therapies, which are renowned for their effectiveness, are complemented here by exclusive treatments, specially developed for the Château de la Messardière. Another way to relish the Valmont expertise – and feel the pure enchantment of being in this part of the world.

“There are so many simple pleasures to be had, each one tailored to your desires.”

Inside Airelles

And as always, surprises await. A few gourmet snacks will be served after you enjoy a wonderfully refreshing swim in the La Bastide swimming pool. Discover the landscape around Gordes at the wheel of a classic Citroën 2CV Vintage car, or by electric bike for anyone more athletic. Take a transfer from Château de la Messardière to the village of Saint-Tropez and spend a blissful afternoon in the deckchairs at the Tropézina Garden on Pampelonne beach.

The Château de la Messardiere : A family home elegance.

Experience

Suspended between sky and sea, this family home has quietly crossed the decades, sublimating an architectural heritage touch by touch, without ever losing any of its nobility.
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 collection of Airelles hotels and exceptional houses. Expanded spa, new swimming pools, completely transformed lobby, from summer 2020, the estate takes on a new dimension to reaffirm its original and singular identity.

Saint-Tropez spirit

Overlooking the 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. Now a 5-star Palace, this former family home has kept all the privileges of its history. Built long before this paradise peninsula became world famous, it has chosen a dream location that offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area. 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.

A radiant elegance

Orchestrated by the interior designer Christophe Tollemer, the restoration of the Château de la Messardière capitalises on its magnificent heritage by giving it the right measure of modernity. The entrance garden sets the tone as soon as you arrive, before discovering the new lobby entirely dressed in neutral, natural tones, sometimes with a hint of gold. This atmosphere full of serenity invites you to relax and savour the happiness of arriving in a soothing refuge of sobriety.

“Le Château de la Messardière boasts some of the most beautiful views in the Mediterranean.”

Inside Airelles

Filled with colour and flavour

Sip on a cocktail while looking out to sea; enjoy a romantic one-on-one dinner at the Acacia while admiring the fiery sunset in the distance, or relish a refreshing lunch with your feet in the sand at the Jardin Tropezina… The restaurants on the property are filled with inspiration and creativity and are designed to satisfy all your desires. From Spanish to Greek, and Italian to Provencal, the best of Mediterranean gastronomy is on offer at the Château de la Messardière.

Pure relaxation at the new Valmont Spa

Entirely renovated for the summer of 2020 and open to outside clients, the Spa is now an 11,000 square-foot haven, bathed in natural light. In this retreat, all that remains is to forget the stresses of everyday life and surrender to the total relaxation of the hammam, the sauna or the small, recently opened private saltwater pool for two. Wonderfully relaxing, it creates the same sensation as wallowing in the Dead Sea – and the feeling of floating in weightlessness is not to be missed.

An escape infused with Mediterranean beauty

A pioneer of responsible luxury, Le Château de la Messardière has implemented an environmental charter for more than 20 years, ensuring it does everything it can to protect its ecosystem. Umbrella pines, century-old olive trees, Provencal cypress trees, terraced vineyards, beehives and vegetable patches, lush citrus fruits and flower-filled gardens … The Château de la Messardière has the rare privilege of being set in an exceptional environment, where Mediterranean biodiversity has been able to flourish for decades. The domain extends over 10 hectares, and is part of a heavenly part of the world, where it is possible to stroll and get lost in the sound of the cicadas, while facing the blue horizon of the sea. Away from the bustle, it is the perfect place for rediscover your natural human connection with the elements: the heat of the sun, the crystal-clear blue of the sea and the the gentle air of Provence. Not to mention the wonderful scents and sights made by the trees and flowers that surround the property.

A castle where the children are kings

Filled with imaginative decor, the Château de la Messardière is a fantasy for any kids and ensures a visit filled with adventures. Here, the Children’s Kingdom couldn’t be more aptly named. In the heart of the garden is a huge outdoor playground for 0-12-year olds, made from the finest wood. There are swings, agility courses, slides, and even a Hansel and Gretel-like cottage for the youngest visitors, who will live a thousand and one imaginative stories each time they visit. Palace life shrunk to child size!

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.

Back from the great outdoors, after having slalomed between the larches, everything here conspires to pamper mind and body.

A kid’s paradise in the Maisons Airelles

Experience

In each of its hotels, Airelles strives to create unforgettable memories for all visitors. This is equally applicable for the big ones … as for the little ones. For our smallest guests, Airelles has brought the Children’s Kingdom to life – a kid-orientated space that lives up to their wildest imaginations.

In the Children’s Kingdom, dreams really do come true. Little princes and princesses are welcomed into an enchanted place filled with imagination. In this magical world, a thousand and one indoor and outdoor activities are available for young guests. The immense games rooms are filled with hidden treasure and every type of entertainment imaginable: toys, dolls and tea-sets for the little ones; arcade games, simulators, video games, air hockey and other consoles for their older siblings.

Under the watchful eyes of their fun-filled minders, the children will fall in love their long enchanted days, where dreams mingle with reality and memories last forever. In the evening, there are more delights to be had: in Courchevel, an exquisite Hermes carriage will take parents and kids on a tour around the snowy village, while in Gordes, the French garden will transform into a grand open-air cinema.

“In the Children’s Kingdom, dreams really do come true.”

“The children will fall in love their long enchanted days.”

Inside Airelles

The best memories always come from moments spent together, which is why Airelles – with the assistance of the concierges – is always happy to organise outdoor activities for the entire family. This includes cultural tours around an extraordinary Cistercian abbey, which is one of Gordes’ great historical monuments; exploring the Manchet Valley on the back of a dog sled in Val d’Isere, or hurtling down the Trois Vallées on a snowmobile.

Voila! And an example of why it’s the small details that create the most exceptional experiences, and why Airelles is the ideal choice for any family holiday.

Airelles Courchevel, a land of adventure

Experience

At Courchevel, there are activities…and then there are Les Airelles activities.

The entire Les Airelles experience has been meticulously crafted to offer guests more amazing adventures than they could ever dream of.

The one-of-a-kind activities are fun for all the family and will captivate both children and adults of all ages. Fans of snow sports and outdoor activities have access to the 3 Valleys, Europe’s largest ski area, and can take private lessons in skiing and snowboarding as well guided excursions with experts in snow shoeing, cross-country skiing and ski touring. On top of that, ice hockey matches and skijoring are also organised for children and teenagers.

And for the thrill-seekers? At every opportunity, Les Airelles organises special experiences such as dog sledding expeditions, hot air balloon rides, paragliding and sky diving. And never one to rest on its laurels, the hotel has two brand-new activities on offer this year: firstly, the opportunity to enjoy a picnic at high altitude with a helicopter flight. And secondly, to spend an unforgettable day cross-country skiing to a refuge (refuge du Christ or refuge de la Traye), where an instructor will introduce the more daring to off-piste skiing, followed by an authentic Savoy meal.

After a day’s skiing, when the slopes close and the resort comes to life, guests at Les Airelles can continue the fun by skating on the private ice rink, going for a snowmobile ride, fat biking, experiencing a torchlight descent or even testing their wits at an escape game in a yurt. Anyone looking to rather let go and unwind also have a rich and varied programme of relaxing activities at their disposal: snowga, yoga, fitness, pilates and obviously La Mer, the locally renowned spa and perfect pre-dinner treat.

“The one-of-a-kind activities are fun for all the family and will captivate both children and adults of all ages.”

 

Inside Airelles

A special requirement? Giuseppe Pochintesta, the clefs d’or concierge at Les Airelles, and his team are on hand to fulfil any requests and make even the wildest dreams reality. “It’s the small touch of added emotion that makes Les Airelles so different”, he tells us. Without him, the Courchevel activities and the magic of Les Airelles could never come to life.

The most unique and extraordinary way of living the Courchevel experience, which will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.

Amazing activities for an unforgettable stay at La Bastide

Experience

You have chosen to lay your head at La Bastide, at the heart of the small Provençal village of Gordes, and thus treat yourself to an extraordinary escape where you can enjoy time with your loved ones and delight in the finer things in life.

While La Bastide is well known for its culinary prestige, relaxing atmosphere and breath-taking views over the Provence region, it also offers fantastic experiences for everyone. A large range of activities are available to guests, young and old alike, looking for something special to feed their body and mind.

The most popular activities with our guests are the seasonal specialties, such as the JeudiVins, wine tasting nights featuring the best local vintages, meticulously selected by our head sommelier Rodolphe Fontaine.

The events organised by Michel Dumas, a scientist from the Ventoux Provence Planetarium, have also been a huge success. All season long, he introduces guests to the passionate art of star gazing, teaching them how to read the sky maps handed out every month, much to our residents’ delight. Each introduction is different: Michel Dumas tailors the lesson based on age, nationality, date and the movement of the stars, planets and moon. An incredible experience of which you can be the star.

No summer is complete without the magnificent gardens of La Bastide being open for your pleasure: from Cross-Fit lessons to an open-air cinema, these magical surroundings will be the setting for some incredible memories. Music also plays a key part in this parade of activities, with live concerts every night at the bar. Our talented musicians and DJs guarantee a fun and festive atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all. Jazz, swing, Bossa Nova, pop, soul…there’s something for everyone!

With all musical genres catered for, the grown-ups can let loose while the kids have a ball.

“The most popular activities with our guests are the seasonal specialties…”

“At La Bastide, children are kings…”

Inside Airelles

At La Bastide, children are kings and have free reign over an entire kingdom built for them.

While magician and caricaturist enthral and mesmerise guests, the staff entertain the younger generations with hands-on and sporty activities, outdoor film screenings and even, like our Easter egg hunt, large treasure hunts in the gardens !

The small village of Gordes doesn’t shy away from the festive mood: there are plenty of activities to choose from in the region and the concierge will be happy to organise fantastic days out for families, couples or singles, ranging from tree-top obstacle courses, canoeing/kayaking, horse riding, hot-air balloon rides, e-bike excursions, Segway expeditions, tennis matches and much more !

Boredom is out of the question this season…unless you decide that’s what you want !

Festivities at Les Airelles Courchevel, overflowing with emotion !

Experience

As it is every year at Les Airelles, the winter season was merry, with its usual array of joyous festivities, grandiose decorations and powerful emotions. Marvellous times were had by all! A magical holiday that we are going to tell you all about.

Let us remember…

The season kicked off with the enthralling Christmas décor, already in place when the hotel opened its doors. In keeping with this year’s theme of “Airelles Magic Christmas”, the entrance hall was transformed into an enchanting village with an advent calendar hidden amongst its midst, much to the delight of the children.

Airelles Russian Magic Christmas

On Christmas Eve, the hotel was buzzing: dinner was being prepared, the tables were set with their finest attire and the chef was in his element creating a special menu. What a delectable evening! When the sun rose the next morning, Father Christmas arrived in a carriage to hand out presents to all the good children, whose look of awe won’t be forgotten any time soon. A unique and truly magical moment.

Enthralling décor at Airelles Courchevel

Women’s day at Airelles Courchevel

On 31st December, the décor for New Year’s Eve took over. In tribute to our future hotel, which will soon host guests inside the Palace of Versailles estate, the entrance hall became a chateau courtyard with fountains and carriage. A ballroom was also made, while the main corridor became a hall of mirrors, as if by magic. An historical reproduction which was accompanied by a gourmet menu specially concocted by our chefs, served by staff in period costumes, and set to some amazing performances from talented artists including a pianist, singer, violinist, actors and a DJ. At midnight, the party culminated with a huge fireworks display on the slopes (organised by the hotel) and a ball which continued until the early morning.

With Orthodox Christmas fast approaching, the hotel’s Noël decorations were back up by 2nd January, but this time with the theme “Airelles Russian Magic Christmas”. The lobby’s village was adorned with magnificent Russian dolls, while the chefs showed off their flair with a gala menu and the staff dressed up in traditional Russian costumes.

The night was a festive one: entertainment was provided by a singer, violinist, saxophonist and pianist before magician Caroline Marx made a surprise entrance !

“On Christmas Eve, the hotel was buzzing: dinner was being prepared…”

“The festivities began with a girly afternoon tea…”

Inside Airelles

With Christmas over, Les Airelles and its staff continued their season…until 8th March, when the hotel was once against transformed for International Women’s Day. This time around, we were treated to a Hollywood atmosphere to the theme of Marie-Antoinette.

The festivities began with a girly afternoon tea: rose-shaped pastries, candy floss, cake pops, champagne and even cakes that could be personalised. Everything was designed to make guests feel as if they were in the flashy Marie-Antoinette era of Sofia Coppola!

In the evening, a small carriage parked up on the terrace, and the Queen’s boudoir welcomed the court into the entrance hall, while the main corridor found itself replaced by an enchanted garden. The La Table des Airelles restaurant also had a leafy makeover and the live female artists flaunted their art: a violinist, DJ, singers, dancers and actors…a magnificent party that didn’t disappoint.

With the season over, guests returned home feeling refreshed and with a head full of memories that will last a lifetime. At Les Airelles, we feel lucky to share such special times and cannot wait to amaze our guests again next year. We hope to see you there!
