A professional tennis coach advises guests of all skill levels on improving their technique.

18:00 A hint of lavender

An evening stroll through the gardens of Château Saint-Martin & Spa is a sublime experience.

Welcome to Château Saint-Martin & Spa

Nestled in the heart of the Côte d'Azur and surrounded by endless natural beauty, the Château Saint-Martin & Spa remains a place where history has blended with and then adapted to a more contemporary lifestyle.  It is a place where sea and mountain combine to form tranquillity that is so overwhelming and has such powers that expectations grow with each visit.

A one-time 12th century Templar Knight Commandery, the Château Saint-Martin & Spa is today a 5-star luxury property that showcases the prestige of exceptional living in a French-style hotel.
