Domaine du Mas de Pierre

  • Total transformation for a Zen attitude
  • There’s no need to go to the other side of the world to unwind. The Relais & Châteaux in Saint-Paul-de-Vence is wholeheartedly committed to relaxation in all its forms, culminating in a remarkable spa open to everyone and all year round.

After substantial works, the park, pools, restaurants, and bastides have been rethought, restructured, and enlarged in a new mindset: French charm. The lagoon area surrounded by rocks, a sort of fantasy island with waterfalls nestled under palm trees, takes you by surprise. Walking on sand through turquoise water, sunbathing “like at the beach” is pure pleasure. A paradise for families! Children have their own playground with La Maison d’Alice—off-limits to parents. Three genuine gipsy caravans decorated in the spirit of Lewis Caroll’s fantasy tale are equipped to allow them to give free rein to their creativity: cooking, gardening, painting… under the watchful eye of professional animators. Yet how can you fail to be seduced by the ultra-modern pavilion housing a 2,000m2 spa on three levels? When it comes to eliminating your nervous tension, nothing is missing. Starting with the bewitching “Volupté”, the Domaine’s olfactory signature created with Tuberose flowers. The relaxation area is entirely devoted to the delights of water with its 18-metre long swimming pool heated all year round, a veritable multi-sensory pool. A hammam combined with snow-cave and ice wall—recommended for skin firming—accentuates the feeling of “letting go”. The 12 cabins set in pearly decor offer a wide range of body and facial treatments (Sothys and Tata Harper). Customised signature rituals include the “Green Tata Harper day” (310) with body treatment (90 minutes), access to the spa and its areas (2 hours) and detox lunch at Bistrot Lis Orto.
