Chateau Saint-Martin & Spa, Côte d’Azur

We love options and not everyone can holiday at Hotel du Cap, truly! Would you like a getaway to the Riviera and run into your neighbors or colleagues? Slip away then, to the du Cap sister property Chateau Saint-Martin & Spa, the quintessential escape from routines, cities and the mundane schedules. Properties are 45 mins. apart, thus the likelihood of passing a partner is highly unlikely.

Sitting amid 30 acres of countryside in the very heart of the Côte d’Azur. The Château is nestled in the foothills of the Baou des Blancs and commands stunning views of the sapphire blue Mediterranean from Nice to Cannes as well as magnificent sights of the Southern Alps.

Set amidst the 12th century ruins of a Knights Templar fortress, the Château Saint-Martin & Spa is one of the French Riviera’s most stunning and entrancing destinations. The South of France and its treasure troves of art and history are all within convenient travel distances from the Château’s home in Vence. Day trips and excursions are easily arranged to visit some of the world’s finest museums, galleries and archaeological sites. Historic, surrounded by museums (Picasso), enchanting garden estates, you decide: become a Riviera crawler and explore the steep hillside ramparts or cocoon at the pool, become a spa connoisseur or dabble in both worlds. We won’t tell if you toss the to do list.

The Château’s setting in pristine countryside enhances an exciting range of recreational activities including horse riding, mountain biking and trekking. Other pursuits, such as golf, diving and sailing on the Mediterranean coast, can be arranged by our superb land team. Sail down the azure coast and view the celebs in St. Tropez, dangle a fishing line from your yacht, practice your swan dive from the bow into the sparkling Mediterranean, dreamy beaches and harbors are nestled along the coastline.

Exceptional dining experience orchestrated by Yannick Franques, a master chef with a 2-star Michelin, and superb signature spa La Prairie & Bamford, recreate a life.

 We have clients who departed today, not too late to unplug!

La Maison Favart, Paris

On occasion, we are asked for a petite hotel, or as one would describe in France, a hotel of exceptional charm. I’m not opposed to petite hotels; we merely don’t receive many requests for intimate smaller hotels.

The young actress Justine Duronceray known as “Mademoiselle Chantilly”, during a stage performance of Les Fêtes Publiques, captivated Charles-Simon Favart, the director of the Comic Opera. They fell in love and the adventure began. Justine and Charles were married on the 12th of December of that very year. So began the incredible story of the most famous couple in the history of Parisian theatre: Monsieur and Madame Favart.

Exceptional experience at La Masion Favart, recommended by one of my dear Parisian friends – he who knows the best of everything! Centrally located, a stone’s throw from the Comic Opera, down a narrow side street away from traffic, near shops and lively bistros and fine dining. Maison Favart amenities include breakfast, a small pool and quiet rooms, and a wonderful efficient concierge service.

Easily explore the Grand Boulevards that Haussmann so expertly designed. Galeries Lafayette and Le Printemps are both within walking distance.

Exceptionally charming!
