La Réserve Ramatuelle Palace: a balcony overlooking the Med

The Palace overlooks the sea
Nestling amongst the hills, a stone’s throw but 1000 leagues from Saint-Tropez, La Réserve Ramatuelle Hotel, Spa and Villas reveals an intense sense of the South of France with jostling blues that underline the infinite shades of the Mediterranean vegetation, from the deep green of the cypress trees to the silver flashes of the olive groves. To be enjoyed as a hotel or a villa, this unique Palace is an intimate refuge where guests can enjoy an enthralling tête-à-tête with the sea. Here, the Mediterranean serves as both the setting and a screen, the background and a key detail.

Hidden among the gardens, the 14 villas with 3-6 en suite bedrooms are the ready-to-use solution for guests who value the comfort of a whole house to themselves, and who appreciate just how privileged they are to be enjoying the incredible views over the Mediterranean and their private heated pool! The hotel services are an added extra, available to order or as bespoke packages, with a nanny, butler, chef, and even a dedicated personal trainer or physio at your beck and call.

Authenticity and sociability are the orders of the day: the locally inspired architecture composed of traditional materials forms a warm and welcoming canvas upon which the clean lines of contemporary furniture work their magic.

The 9 bedrooms (50m²) and 19 suites (55m² to 100m²) were designed by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, using an understated vocabulary dominated by space and soft colours, all in sandy yellows, ochre, and white. Spacious terraces (25m² to 190m²) serve as solariums, and some come with a private garden.

Keen swimmers: on your marks, get set, go! With its 30m of turquoise blue that stretch out into the Mediterranean, the heated outdoor pool is a real oasis in the aromatic heath.

At La Voile, the dinnertime star is first and foremost... the sea views. But that’s not all: the cuisine (with one Michelin star) draws on the local area right down to the smallest detail. Chef Éric Canino has planted a bountiful kitchen garden that he uses for inspiration every day, with its tomatoes, aubergines, broad beans, and multi-coloured peppers!

A haven of immaculate white, La Réserve Spa Ramatuelle (11,000m² with 11 treatment rooms and heated indoor pool) harnesses transparency and natural light in perfect symphony with the surrounding nature. The treatments all showcase Nescens cures, with a programme that combines brisk walking, spa treatments, and healthy Mediterranean cuisine.

The terraces can be enjoyed at any time of day, but the high point has to be the Sky Bar. It is the perfect spot for catching sunset, when the sea gradually dons its eventide hues.
