In the 12th century Château Saint-Martin & Spa was a Knights Templar Commandery, strategically placed on the Vence hillside with panoramic views across the sweep of Côte d'Azur. Today the rare beauty of the Château’s surroundings make a stunning backdrop for unforgettable stays on the French Riviera.


Step through a brick arch onto the charming terrace of your suite or climb the narrow spiral stairs to your Honeymoon Duplex Suite at the top of the tower. For those preferring more privacy, the villas offer a sense of peaceful seclusion with uninterrupted views across the olive groves, over the Château below all the way to the Côte d’Azur.

The property is set in 34 acres of picturesque natural beauty, and the surrounding countryside offers a range of recreational activities including magical walks through the hills. There are also many pleasures on the Mediterranean including a trip to a private beach.

At the Château guests have Spa Saint-Martin Sisley; fitness facilities and the majestic infinity pool. For our younger guests the hotel has devised an exclusive programme of activities.

Dine in a refined or rustic setting, with magnificent views of the French Riviera.

The hotel’s two restaurants are the inspiration of a celebrated gourmet team lead by Jean-Luc Lefrançois, each shares a particular passion for the terroir. Take a seat on the panoramic terrace and savour the gastronomic menu at Le Saint-Martin, while flavours of the Mediterranean are presented at L'Oliveraie in a shady olive grove.

Le Rossini is a bar of fine style and elegance, where guests can relax with afternoon tea or after dinner cognacs. The cellars boast some of the world's most exclusive vintages. The graceful swimming pool bar is also open for cocktails, take a seat by the lawn and enjoy lovely views over the Château’s gardens and park.
