Set in the Maritime Alps among the coastal hills of the Cote d’Azur, the mediaeval walled town of Vance has long been a magnet for artists such as Chagall and Matisse, drawn here by the natural beauty of the surroundings, its position between the mountains and the Mediterranean, and the pure mineral spring water that runs freely through the many fountains dotted about the town.
Looking down at Vance from its 34 acres of grounds, the five-star Château Saint-Martin & Spa has been a silent historic guardian over the centuries, courtesy of its former life as a 12th-century Knights Templar stronghold. Today the Knights have long gone, but the sense of chivalry remains: the attention to detail and first-class service within a property blessed with a position of unparalleled beauty. The sweeping views of the Cote d’Azur and Mediterranean below are a distraction to the tranquillity of this spacious estate filled with an abundance of everything that is good about the French Riviera.
The 46 beautifully elegant guestrooms, suites and villas reflect style and sophistication, with soft pastel interiors, king-size beds, Louis XV and XVI décor, Pierre de Bourgogne marble bathrooms and panoramic garden or Riviera views.
Dining at Château Saint-Martin is a culinary journey from Michelin-star gastronomy to informal brasserie fare all under the watchful eye of award-winning executive chef Franck Ferigutti. Whether you choose the artistry of Michelin-rated Saint-Martin, the informal Le 180 Brasserie or decide to sit under century-old olive trees and enjoy summer grills and salads al fresco at L’Oliveraie, the flavours and influences of authentic Mediterranean cuisine will tantalise your taste buds. So too, perhaps, a rare cognac, a signature cocktail or a bottle or two from the extensive wine cellar.
Before all this, simply relax on a sunbed around the impressive infinity poolside set among the ancient olive trees or enjoy wraps, body scrubs and La Prairie signature treatments in the full-service luxury spa, specialising in Bamford natural revitalising treatments.
