CHATEAU SAINT MARTIN & SPA, Oetker Collection
The Chateau was bought by a Polish Count in 1900, who restored part of the property with the intention of donating it to a religious order. However, it was then acquired by a Parisian businessman who renovated it into a Hotel in 1958, until the Oetker family purchased the Château du Domaine Saint Martin in 1994. The Chateau has then undergone an extensive renovation project. The vast landscape, tranquil atmosphere and historic site create a quiet, historical and discreet setting for a holiday.

Restaurants & Bars
• Le Saint-Martin – Chef Jean-Luc Lefrançois transforms bountiful Riviera harvests into Michelin-starred cuisine sourcing from local producers and his flourishing kitchen gardens.
Le Saint-Martin is an epicurean aerie with sweeping views across the Côte d’Azur and stylish new interiors as fresh as the season. Gourmet Pâtissière Eve Moncorger puts the jewel on the crown and Head Sommelier Géraud Tournier transforms the fine dining experience into a truly elevated journey of discovery.
• L’oliveraie – A generous corner of the Château garden is a profusion of herbs and ripening vegetables that inspire L’Oliveraie’s menu.
Lounge beneath the boughs of an ancient olive, relishing the sun-drenched Mediterranean flavours; herb-infused grilled fish and meats, rustic pizzas from our wood-fired oven, teppanyaki plates and zesty salads.
• Le Rossini is the most refined setting for an evening cocktail on the French Riviera. Seated on the terrace, a glass of champagne is savoured with splendid sweeping views over the Côte d’Azur. After-dinner cocktails are a particular pleasure in the bar, which is furnished with regal splendour. Of special note are the rare tapestries, commissioned from Manufacture des Gobelins in Paris more than 200 years ago. Le Rossini also serves an exceptionally elegant afternoon tea.
