Circuit Paul Ricard, known locally as Le Castellet, plays host to the French Grand Prix. Nestling in the hills of Provence, there are few more beautiful locations for a Grand Prix weekend. With its Mediterranean climate, fine food and exquisite wines, this is a great destination to enjoy a weekend of exhilarating F1 action.
The Le Castellet F1 Paddock Club is the hottest ticket in the South of France. Mingle with stars and celebs as your watch the Grand Prix drama unfold from a prime viewing position above the team garages. Paddock club is renowned for its lavishness and opulence. There is no other hospitality package which it can be compared to.
Temperatures at Circuit Paul Ricard can get very warm in June. If Paddock Club is not for you then we would wholeheartedly recommend Champions Club or one of the circuit’s local hospitality options: Les Terrasses Excellence, Le Pole Position or Salon France, to ensure you can enjoy the weekend in air-conditioned comfort.
Le Castellet has an idyllic setting, but this is not the easiest race on the calendar to access. We would recommend staying in Marseilles, at the centre of which you will find the vibrant Vieux Port (Old Port), mast-to-mast with yachts and pleasure boats and surrounded by an eclectic mix of bars and restaurants. If you are looking for a more ‘Provençal’ experience, we have a couple of chateau style properties tucked away in the countryside which are real ‘hidden gems’.
