From the slopes of Cap Camarat, the imposing wineyard offers a panoramic view of the Levant islands.
It was for the love of a young girl from Ramatuelle, that an English Lord built the Château in stone with Klein blue shutters, and the private port bordered by quiet creeks. Château Volterra took 20 years to build and was completed in 1925. Léon Volterra was elected Mayor of Saint-Tropez in 1935. Before the war, Simone and Léon Volterra dominated Paris, they owned, amongst others, the Casino de Paris, the Galeries Lafayette and the Lido. They bought the huge property planted with vines and pine forests and opened it to the artists, the theatre and music hall entertainers but also to politicians and simple hunters. Many French actors and artists enjoyed this charming spot during it’s heydays, several movies were also filmed there. Today Château Volterra is synonymous with exceptional wines.
The Château is a commercial enterprise that actively participates in various actions as a member of the communities of Ramatuelle and Saint-Tropez. A variety of events are organized all summer; gastronomy and wines, wine tasting, visits of the wine cellars and, the not to be missed picnic during the grape harvesting... and much, much more.
