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.

A CHÂTEAU ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA: MODERN INTERIORS BY OITOEMPONTO traces this assiduous renovation, from initial watercolor sketches and photographs— reproduced here on offset paper—through to the finished private family residence. Exquisitely illustrated, this rich volume escorts readers on an intimate tour of the immense reception rooms, bedrooms and suites, entertainment areas, and secret chambers in the vast 17,000-square-foot château. The reinvention of this magnificent estate is its most luxurious incarnation to date.
