Le Beauvallon Hotel ****

Baie de St Tropez,Beauvallon-Grimaud,83120 Sainte-Maxime,France


Le Beauvallon HotelExterior View

Six hectares of landscaped gardens unfurl like a green carpet as far as the Mediterranean coastline to Beach Club, a private playground for guests of Le Beauvallon.

Space and tranquillity set the hotel apart and the exclusivity of the residential enclave that is Beauvallon, is highly valued by those who want complete privacy away from the limelight, and yet all the excitement of the Cote D'Azur is but a mere heartbeat away.


Le Beauvallon nestles in the shade of mimosa trees and grandfather umbrella pines in a beautiful valley from where the hotel derives its name.

In 1911, utterly seduced by the beauty of this unspoilt area, Monsieur Emile Bernheim, a reputed Parisian businessman, asked his friend, the architect Flegenheimer, to build a palace hotel similar to those being built further along the coast in Cannes and Nice. Construction of what is now Le Beauvallon was completed in 1913.

In 1914, however, with the outbreak of the First World War, in an act of patriotism, Monsieur Bernheim offered his newly finished hotel to the French Red Cross as a hospital for convalescing soldiers.

After the war and some renovation work including the building of a 9 hole golf course, the hotel finally opened for business. This marked the beginning of the Golden Era for the hotel when anyone who was anyone came to stay at the hotel, which at the time was known as the  Golf Hotel de Beauvallon.

Popular plays and works were written on the balconies and the rumour still lingers that Scott Fitzgerald's famous novel "Tender is the Night" was conceived at Le Beauvallon. A more established fact is that after the huge success of his work "Toi et Moi", playwright Paul Géraldy made his room on the fourth floor of the hotel the base from which he wrote many other works.

During the course of the Second World War, Le Beauvallon was again used as a military hospital then occupied by the French, Italian and German troops until the arrival of the US troops shortly after the 15 August landings in 1944.

Extensive repairs enabled the prestigious Golf Hotel de Beauvallon to find its pre-war splendour and once again the Great and the Glamorous flocked to holiday at the hotel. Lady Churchill, Michèle Morgan, the Grand Duchess of Luxemburg, Senator Edward Kennedy and his family, all the post-war greats were here.

 Le Beauvallon is - an idyllic and unique spot where time really does seem to stand still.
