The Château de Valmer: An Oasis of Luxury on the French Riviera

Within an age-old park, close to Gigaro beach, the Château de Valmer charms with its allure of a bourgeois residence from the 50s. This sumptuous hotel has managed to maintain an authentic appeal through a subtle combination of tradition and glamour.

From its majestic entranceway lined with palm trees, the Château de Valmer exhibits its elegant silhouette, perfected with care by the Rocchietta family since 1949. A byword for the sweet life of Provence, this ancient farmhouse welcomes guests in a setting of lush greenery, where vines, and botanical and rose gardens brilliantly exalt their Mediterranean heritage.

At the heart of the building, 42 refined rooms, adjoined by cozy salons and a shaded patio, provide a relaxing retreat, while outside, perched in the estate’s ancient oak trees, two beautiful log cabins offer a return to life’s simple pleasures. The experience is an ode to nature and relaxation just waiting to be extended, for the duration of a spa treatment or a lie by the pool.

As for the restaurant, Chef Jimmy Coutel’s culinary creations will delight you, and marry wonderfully with the estate’s organic wines. His inventive dishes pay tribute to the beauty of this paradise, nestled close to the small village of La Croix-Valmer and Gigaro beach with its stunning views of the Îles d'Hyères islands. It’s a guaranteed getaway!
