The Château Volterra surveys the Mediterranean Sea from a commanding position on Cap Camarat, on the south-eastern shore of the presqu’île of Saint-Tropez. Set 100 meters (320 feet) above sea level, it enjoys unimpeded views of the Mediterranean on three sides and, to the east, gazes over its own immaculately tended vineyards. Although only short drive from the village of Ramatuelle, the Château’s extensive grounds and its rocky waterfront afford complete privacy.

 Constructed between 1890 and 1910, the Château was designed to reflect the solid elegance of a traditional Tuscan palazzo. Its terracotta-coloured stone towers are crowned by gently sloping tiled roofs and a central arched loggia, fronted by terraced gardens, softens its massive facade.

 In 1999, the Château was purchased by a group of Canadian investors captivated by its magnificent views, the grand scale of its rooms and the promise of its gardens and vineyards. A design was developed for the interior that, while respecting the original spirit of the building, turned its vast rooms and hallways into elegant but thoroughly livable spaces.

 The gardens at Château Volterra were planned as a gradual, coherent transition between the linear stone facades of the building and the marvelously aromatic tangle of Mediterranean brush that naturally covers the hillside.

At the main entrance to the Château, a lovely fountain forms the centerpiece of a formal garden with clipped hedges of laurier sauge, cypress trees and a magnificent wisteria. The next terrace is a formal rose garden with a stunning view of Cap Taillat followed by a formal Italian-inspired knot garden.

Above the château, ancient olive trees preside over the ensemble.
