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
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
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
Le Beauvallon is - an idyllic and unique spot where time really
does seem to stand still.
This belle-époque palace, first constructed in 1914 is nestled
between the charming Provencal village of Grimaud and Ste Maxime and commands
stunning views over the Bay of St Tropez, eight minutes away by boat from the

The mood is Mediterranean while oriental silks add a touch of the exotic.
Light, refreshing and lacking for nothing, the 58 rooms at Le Beauvallon
reflect the easy elegance and refined luxury of the spirit of the hotel.
Views from the rooms are of the sweeping panorama of the gardens and the Bay
of St Tropez beyond, whilst others overlook the greens of the Beauvallon
Golf Course just behind the hotel.
Each of the 12 suites at Le Beauvallon is individually decorated and
possesses individual charm and elegance. Comfort, luxury and service are of
paramount importance and everything from handcrafted king size beds to Bulgari
bathroom amenities and countless little details have many of the guests
returning year after year.
