Producing well-regarded Provence roses and reds, the Château de Berne is a working wine estate with 200 acres of vines in the Côtes de Provence appellation, west of Fréjus at Lorgues (83 Var, Provence PACA).
Winding through acres of fertile vineyards in the depth of Provence, a rustic avenue turns off the beaten track into the heart of the picturesque Chateau de Berne estate. A charming and exclusive private residence, The Hotel Chateau de Berne is a four star Relais et Chateaux hotel, which captures to perfection the allure of rural France and combines it with the luxury of a first class resort.
The small hotel offers 19 bedrooms ( double or suites or a family room )and a heated pool at the edge of the vineyards, a tennis court, a luxurious spa, a restaurant, two cafés and a cookery school.
Head down to the end of a narrow lane, deep in the Provençal countryside and you’ll find this magnificent 18th-century château. More specifically, this palatial castle is located in Lorgues, the oldest wine-growing region of Provence, famous for pale, dry rosé and spicy, full-flavoured reds. In between wine tours and activities, you can relax in the massive spa and Michelin-starred restaurant, go on walks through the olive groves, or hire a car and discover even more of the local area.
