The freshly reopened Chateau de la Messardière is definitely the “palace” to be in Saint-Tropez, one icon of the French Riviera, a few steps from the helicopter drop-zone we provide.


All features you need for a luxury stay are part of this amazing hotel: its 55 suites and 62 rooms have been refurbished last winter, a spa Valmont Cinq Mondes is dedicated to pampering and well-being, as well as its pool and beach “Tropezina” where you can chill out when you need to! The dining side is a real culinary “voyage” thanks to the Chef David Millet.

The masterpiece of La Messardiere is its gorgeous 25-acre grounds that includes an ornithological reserve and some hives that produce the honey you will taste for your breakfast!

Average nightly cost: between 700€ (low season) and 1100€ (high season)
