14 sprawling hectares of gardens, fields, and trees surround Château Saint-Martin & Spa, creating a Garden of Eden type of environ. And although you will find olives about, there aren't any serpents to get you in trouble.

Dining is of course a spectacle here, with three options to make you salivate. The two-Michelin Star Le Saint-Martin crafts ornate plates worthy of the title "art." At La Rôtisserie, traditional faire is served indoors and out, whereas Grill Oliveraie elevates steak to heady new levels.
Play a little tennis or Petanque before retiring to one of 51 suites or villas. In any one of them, you'll enjoy rich fabrics, sound-proofing, pink marble baths, and walk-in wardrobes.
No matter how you spend your time, you're sure to leave with a new appreciation for fine food, wine, and lots of sunscreen.
