Vence: novelties at Château Saint Martin & Spa
Perfectly situated 15km from Nice airport, at the heart of 14 hectares, where 300 olive groves reign supreme, the Château Saint-Martin & Spa – a member of the Oetker collection – offers an exceptional glimpse over Vence town and the Mediterranean in the distance. This five-star hotel comprises of 39 Junior Suites and 6 private villas, its elegant décor punctuated with traditional furniture and rose marble bathrooms. And there are lots of new additions to welcome in the summer: chef Jean-Luc Lefrançois joins the Château Saint-Martin, directing the kitchens of both restaurants, his menu favouring seasonal and regional products. The gastro-restaurant, “Le Saint-Martin”, offers a spectacular view from its superb terrace. At the Oliveraie, eat lunch on the grass and enjoy golden oven-cooked pizzas or herb grilled meat and fish. Another new addition: the spa, which opened in April, which brandishes the colours of prestigious French house “Sisley”. It boasts five treatments rooms including a double, and a Gloriette where you can have a massage out in the open. Finally, a special note must go to the superb swimming pool, which is hidden amongst perfectly arranged wild flowers.
