Between the Plaine des Maures and the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, a UFO has landed. A facade embellished by a lime finish emerges from a 46-hectare vineyard. That of Ultimate Provence. The AOP Côtes de Provence vines are the ones served – but above all produced – in this intimate location that is still being shared by word of mouth. An exceptional beverage, available in three colours (rosé, red and white) that you can savour in a spectacular setting designed by the architects Humbert & Poyet. For this project, the duo returned to their roots – the Mediterranean region – and to their influences “The sea, the colours of the land, and nature”. Imagery that inspired and is inscribed in the extraordinary space of Ultimate Provence. Eager to stage an original wine-related experience while at the same time making the address a place open to all, the Monegasques have proceeded in stages. Three, to be precise. The first: the redesign of the place with the cellars and the space dedicated to tasting. The second: the creation of the Atmos restaurant connected to the source – the wine – and its tasting area. The third: the hotel and its 23 bedrooms. A daring gamble, combining design, terroir and gourmet cuisine. From urban trends that blow in just the right dose of modernity and freshness to a “Provencal-style” hospitality whose reputation is well-established. An absolute must for a visit this summer to enjoy the generous outdoor space and its splendid swimming pool, all in Santo Tirso granite. A moment of weightlessness against the backdrop of a vineyard, a lavender field and an olive grove.
