Chateau Saint-Martin Spa


The property has a rich history going back to Roman times where it was a strategically placed fortified building in the year 350.  It became home to Saint-Martin the Bishop of Tours and ended up keeping his name. In 1150, it became a stronghold of the Knights Templar whose message of faith remains as the Saint-Martin Chapel. By 1900, it was left in ruins and later purchased by a Polish count. The picturesque ruins are now listed historical monuments which is home to the legend of the Templar treasure of gold, diamonds, precious stones and jewels, though they were never found. In 1954, it was turned into a hotel by Parisian industrialist, Fernand Genève. The six villas overlooking it were built in 1960, and in 1994 the Oetker family became the new owners and transformed it into a luxury hotel. By 1998 it had 46 rooms, suites and private villas designed by renowned architect and interior decorator, Bergit Grafin Douglas from MM Design based in Frankfurt, Germany.
