Le Mas de Chastelas, an 18th Century country mansion that was once the country home of the Bertaud Lords, is one of the oldest luxury hotels in St Tropez. Two Italianate villas - the Palladian Villa and Tuscan Villa - have been added to offer accommodation in a variety of spacious rooms and suites sleeping between two and six people.
The charmingly picturesque house, villas and beautiful gardens of oak, mimosa, pines, lavender, oranges, and rose overlook the vineyards of Bertaud Belieu, known for summery rosé wines. Even though there is a complimentary shuttle service to take you to the nearby beaches of St Tropez, you will find it hard to leave the wonderful private gardens or the turquoise waters of the private pool.
If you stay at Le Mas de Chastelas on your holiday in the South of France, there is a choice between rustic French chic and more contemporary style in the 14 rooms and 9 suites. The Bastide Suite is the largest, ideal for two adults and two children, with an expansive living area and terrace; the Deluxe Two Bedroom Suite, meanwhile, is great for families with teenagers thinking of returning late, or anyone travelling with a nanny or staff. Le Mas de Chastelas also has a fantastic and flexible kitchen that creates both fine dining and more casual dishes, as well as a heated pool, tennis court and putting green.
