Behind a discreet entrance, this ivy-clad chateau sits proudly amid manicured, tiered gardens, lush olive groves and a giant pool. Pass through reception to find a terrace with panoramic views of the French Riviera.

VENUES STRAIGHT FROM A FAIRYTALE

You won't need to organise a separate venue for your ceremony here - the château's own chapel room lies at the end of a cool corridor of '50s Riviera photography. Plus, the hotel recently opened five new private villas in the grounds, where you and your maids can have one amazing getting-ready party.
