Saint-Tropez - France
Near the glittering coast of the French Riviera, surrounded by a luscious cru classé vineyard, the highly regarded, Portugal-based architectural firm OITOEMPONTO oversaw the renaissance of Château Saint-Maur in Cogolin, through a comprehensive, four-year renovation.
Using only the finest materials and working with worldclass artisans and craftsmen, they have created an elegant oasis that combines art and custom design pieces to create a sense of harmony both inside and outside the château.
