Summer at Le Château de La Messardière

Château de La Messardière is widely known as one of Saint-Tropez’s most exclusive addresses. Transformed into a luxury resort, it majestically surveys the Bay of Pampelonne.

A Tropezian legend.

On the hills of Saint-Tropez, an historic property stands in the midst of an estate of pinewoods and gardens: Château de La Messardière. Built in the 19th century, the castle was a wedding present for Henri Brisson de la Messardière, an officer and excellent horse-rider, and Louise Dupuy D’Angeac, a young artist and musician. In 1904, the family residence was transformed into an hotel, becoming an iconic place to stay in Saint-Tropez in the Roaring ‘Twenties. The spirit of Château, now entirely redesigned as a resort, remains unchanged.

The new resort

A stay at Château de La Messardière means experiencing a new kind of resort and thus benefiting from a wide variety of prestigious amenities and services, such as a Mini-Moke placed at your disposal to ride to the Place des Lices. On its 30.87-acre estate, Château de La Messardière offers 103 Rooms and Suites including an apartment of 170 m2 nestling in one of its towers with a private pool and terrace, a Spa Valmont of 1,000 sqm, four restaurants (Carrara, Matsuhisa, L’Auberge des Maures, La Table d’Estoublon), a buffet served from breakfast to lunch time at La Table de La Messardière, three bars (including two pool bars), plus four swimming pools, one reserved exclusively for children at the Airelles Summer Camp, a villa of 500 sqm specially dedicated to them. Two addresses in town complete the hotel’s offerings, the restaurants Cookoovaya and Zetta, as well as a private beach, the Jardin Tropézina, shared with Le Pan Deï Palais. Hitherto unseen in the region…

Luxury, quietness… and sport!

Château de La Messardière also stands out for its array of sports activities, appealing to its most energetic vacationers. Benefit from a yoga session early in the morning, followed by a few strokes in the lap-pool. You can also attend aquasport classes (aquagym, aquabike). But that’s not all: depending on your mood, go jogging in Château’s gardens, hit a few balls on one of the estate’s tennis courts, and don’t miss out on playing “pétanque”! To complete its offerings, Château de La Messardière also places a gym with a view and the latest Technogym equipment at your disposal. Archery, Laser Fun, Bubble Foot, pony rides… children can also get the workouts they need.
