Discrete luxury, ideally located just minutes from Saint-Tropez, overlooking the Mediterranean, La Réserve Ramatuelle offers contemporary Provençal-style living. Designed by renowned architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, its chic rooms and suites benefit from a private south facing terrace or fragrant garden, while the Remi Tessier-designed villas boast private pools and a full choice of optional hotel services such as a dedicated chef, butler and housekeeper. Healthy yet intensely flavoured Mediterranean cuisine is the speciality of chef Eric Canino, the Michelin-starred La Voile having a terrace for alfresco dining. Ease away the aches of the day in the exceptionally spacious spa where tailor-made treatments by La Mer, Nescens better-aging programmes and bootcamps are enhanced by an indoor pool with jet lane, an outdoor pool and hammam. The concierge will be delighted to arrange trips to the beach – two kilometres away – for recreations such as diving, boat excursions and water-skiing. There is a complimentary hotel shuttle service taking guests between the inviting beach side communes of Pampelonne, Ramatuelle and Saint-Tropez. The beautiful landscape between the sea and the mountains is ideal for hiking and Nordic walking.
The southern regions of France and the Côte d’Azur tend to experience more of a Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers and cool winters, whilst the northern region of France has a temperate climate with warm summers and cold winters. May, June and September are good months to enjoy the warmer weather yet avoid the crowds.
