Where it all began
'This site is superb; we’ll build a hotel, and within four years, even Parisians will be flocking here.’
Émile Bernheim, founder of Domain of Beauvallon, 1911
The urbanisation of the Bay of Saint-Tropez began from west of Sainte-Maxime in the early 20th century.
Domaine de Beauvallon was one of the first developments created from the vision of Emile and Edmond Bernheim. These brothers bought the entire hillside and started by building a golf course and hotel, whose original name was Le Golf Hotel.
