The La Réserve Ramatuelle is a spa and hotel which provide serenity for the guest, designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Located on a quiet hill by the Mediterranean Sea near the legendary village of St. Tropez, this building consist of seven guest rooms, sixteen suites, one thousand square metre spa and other facilities are seamlessly integrated into La Réserve’s private domain, lounge, bar and restaurant, a gorgeous pine-covered expanse, also home to twelve vacation villas that can be rented on either a short-term or long-term basis. Each luxuriously spacious rooms equipped with a private terrace or garden, provide unrestricted views over the Provencal landscape below.
“It’s hard to compete with the stunning natural beauty of Provence, especially in Ramatuelle, where the setting sun of southern France kisses pine-topped hills and sparkling Mediterranean waters with equal warmth. Rather than compete with so dazzling a landscape, architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte chose to embrace it, creating spaces that pay reverence to the environment surrounding them. In a complete transformation of the 1950s buildings in which La Réserve hotel and spa stands, Wilmotte chose natural materials and a soft colour palette of ochre, white and sandy beige. His stone floors are bedecked with woven rugs by Paola Lenti and Tai Ping, his giant windows are hung with linen and cotton drapes by Marc Geisen and Kieffer, and his rooms are filled with contemporary furniture by Hans J. Wegner, Finn Juhl, Moroso, Flexform, Poltrona Frau, B&B and Roda. Designer Rémi Tessier took a similar approach in La Réserve’s twelve private villas. His interiors focus on spacious open areas intended to maximise the pleasures of the Provencal sun and salty sea breezes. Each individually designed villa has its own unique atmosphere, but all are surrounded by large private gardens and pools in typical Mediterranean style. Together, the simple lines and understated designs of Tessier’s villas and Wilmotte’s hotel-spa create a fresh and relaxing space that gracefully mirrors its serene seaside environment.”
