Château Saint-Martin

Vence, France

Location Château Saint-Martin is part of the excellent Oetker Collection and is set in 13.7 hectares, high in the hills of Vence. A much-loved icon of the French Riviera, the resort is blessed with its own private helipad and is therefore just 10 minutes from the superyacht hub of Monaco.

Why it’s special It’s the perfect haunt for well-heeled wine lovers, thanks to its Michelin-starred restaurant Le Saint- Martin, and the outdoor L’Oliveraie, serving exquisite Mediterranean food matched to local wines. The best spot of all, though, is the dramatic underground cellar, hewn deep into the bedrock beneath the hotel.

What to look for The weekly Les Canthares Wine Tasting and Dinner hosted by head sommelier Géraud Tournier, with dishes created by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Luc Lefrançois to match the wines.

Best bit All the wine-tasting packages available, including the Provencal Tasting, the Chardonnay Tasting or the Champagne Tasting for Two.

Top tip Delve into the 8,000-bottle wine list, where treats include 2009 Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Cuvée Cathelin, 2015 Domaine Tessier Meursault 1er Cru and 2007 Domaine Tempier Bandol Cuvée La Migoua.
