Saint Tropez Les Nuits du Chateau de la Moutte

Enjoy this famous Saint Tropez festival throughout August with lots of cultural music, dance and theatre in a magnificent 19th Century castle

 

Summer wouldn’t be the same without the iconic “Les Nuits du Chateau Moutte” Festival in Saint Tropez – and this year’s program looks to be even more exciting and vibrant than ever, with numerous concerts and performances by prestigious artists from around the world on one of the biggest stages imaginable.

 

Chateau Moutte is a unique, magical location, a 19th Century castle close to the beach at Canoubiers and set in the heart of a grove of palm trees. Throughout July and August this summer, it will be filled with the sound of music as various performances of dance, theatre and music take place.

 

This historic castle was built by First Secretary of Napoleon the Third, Emile Ollivier, who was married to the daughter of the famous composer Franz Liszt. Ollivier welcomed writers, musicians and politicians to the castle to share ideas. This tradition continues with the Festival, which has been part of Saint Tropez’s list of summer events. For the past 14 years, famous classical, jazz and dance performances have been held in the castle courtyard.
