A rich and fascinating history 

La Messardière is far more than a luxury hotel in Saint‑Tropez. The Chateau's name actually goes back to the era of Charles Martel and numerous marriages related the family to the Royal, Carolingian and Capetian dynasties from 640 onwards.

Coat of arms 

After a series of feats of arms and royal decorations, the dynasty's official Coat of Arms first appeared in 1669, when Renée, daughter of Seigneur de la Messardière, wedded Count Léonor Le Brun. The Château continues to adorn its Coat of Arms today: "Argent, on a chevron gules between three martlets sable", accompanied by the motto "Victor et Inermis" (victor even when disarmed).

From a chateau to a luxury Saint‑Tropez hotel

After passing through the hands of a series of owners, the Chateau was once again faced with ruin. Standing alone on the hillside, exposed to the four winds (and pillagers), it was widely believed to be haunted. Some paranormal believers even declared they had sensed positive and negative energy fields around the Château walls, hence adding to the site's exciting and mystical aura.

The Château was restored and extended in 1989 under the supervision of the chief architect of historical monuments, J.C. Rochette. Bought up in 1992 by a French Group, the Château is now living a second youth under the impetus of General Manager Alexandre DURAND-VIEL

And according to their symbolism, the cypresses bordering the Château should now bring it eternal life…

A fascinating destiny

Built in the 19th century, the Château was donated to officer and excellent horseman Henry Brisson de la Messardière and young artist and musician Louise Dupuy Angeac, at the time of their wedding. The couple had seven children.

Their gentle and quiet life was a succession of long horse rides and piano playing… until Henri's untimely death. Louise was faced with poverty, but the dynamic and determined young widow decided to take the Château's fate into her own hands by using it as lodgings for prestigious guests.

During the roaring twenties, the lounges of La Messardière were the stage for extravagant receptions and parties. Sadly, Louise's poor management skills slowly but surely led the Château to ruin.
