Located on the Côte d'Azur in the seaside town of Théoule-sur-Mer sits the recently opened Château de Théoule- a 44 room hotel housed in a soap factory built in 1630.

With decor as rich as its storied past, the hotel boasts an authentic visual narrative dedicated to the region and the essence of its perfume roots wherein the 17th century, only the Monks of Montpellier were granted the exclusive privilege of making lavender and sage-based eau de parfum known as "Les Simples". 

Throughout the ages however, the The Château has stood the test of time, from Egypt to the time of Napoleon III, and finally a Scottish style in 1910, responsible for its exterior appearance today.

From French sovereigns to the empresses of the world who alternated between the Basque coast in summer and the Côte d'Azur in winter; the château basks in the Provencal sun seeming to almost remove one from both time and place.

Full of eclectic design inspiration; the spaces are a blend of charm and comfort with a touch of whimsy.

This new (old) jewel on the Côte d’Azur is one of the latest projects from Millesime, the French hotel group that focuses on lovingly restored heritage buildings and boutique stays that highlight the history of the area and balance period details with modern finishings.

Add to the summer dream list.
