Château Saint-Martin

Near Vence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur

Monaco can be a hectic place especially during the summer months, so here we reveal five top hideaways within 45 minutes’ drive or a short helicopter ride from Monaco if you are looking for some luxurious relaxation after the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show away from your superyacht.

1. Château Saint-Martin

Château Saint-Martin near historic Vence exudes patrician grace without a mote of tapestry dust. The château rooms and garden villas are dressed in a light, classical style, with hints of playful Côte d’Azur glamour in gold sconces and boldly patterned fabrics. In the gardens, on warm autumn days, the attached wellness spa offers treatments under a muslin-draped gazebo by the infinity pool — but the true luxury here is the view.

The hills of Vence and soaring 12th century architecture endow Château Saint-Martin with an oceanic panorama that sweeps from Monaco to Nice. It is just under 30 miles by car from Monaco, but many locals whizz in by helicopter for dinner at the one-Michelin-star restaurant Le Saint-Martin, considered to be one of the best restaurants on the French Riviera. Afterwards, you can sip a cocktail on the terrace of bistro Le 180 and know that you have a better view than the nearest prince (unless he’s at the next table).
