Perched on a hilltop studded with umbrella pines, a ten-minute drive from the village, this turreted 19th-century castle exemplifies Mediterranean grandeur.

Indagare Loves

  • Expansive pool for lounging with a view of the Bay of Pampelonne
  • Massive suites with private terraces
  • Shuttle service to Tahiti and Tropezina beaches


The décor is Florentine inspired, and the views of the sea and surrounding countryside are stunning from this height. There are seventy-five rooms and forty suites (ask for one with a terrace or balcony overlooking the sea). After a two-year renovation, the property joined France’s Airelles group, and added an outdoor lap pool and a 10,000-square-foot Valmont Spa. Inside the new wellness sanctuary, guests can enjoy signature massages in any of the nine treatment rooms, as well as a hammam, sauna, indoor pool and infrared therapy.

The huge pool and impressive fitness center and spa may persuade you to remain on-site, but La Messardière also offers twenty-four-hour shuttle service to two of St.-Tropez’s private beaches (Tahiti and Tropezina). Some couples bring children, but the atmosphere is discreet and slightly formal, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself whispering.
