I once had the invitation to do a write-up about Chateau de Berne back in 2006 in exchange for a night in one of their suites and a dining experience. It was the first of March and they had just reopened for the season. Back then it wasn’t as luxurious but the service was excellent and the establishment was eyeing for higher sights. Ten years ago the “auberge” was more cosy and less classy but the accommodation very comfortable albeit neo-provençale in decor.
In 2017 Chateau de Berne has come a long ways. With a ton more money invested in their interior and exterior beautification, the addition of their super spa has cemented their position as a competitive 5-star establishment here in the Var. The new interior decoration is sublime and would impress even the fussiest clientelle. The spa products were exquisite and from the uber-quality brand Cinq Monde (https://www.cinqmondes.com/). But if a massage, facial, or body treatment isn’t your desire you can opt for the 77 euros per person -3-hour free use of hammam, sauna, jacuzzi and well-heated indoor swimming pool AND lunch at the bistro in the cold months which will probably relax and pamper you just as much. I had the body scrub treatment which made me feel like I had the smoothest of baby’s skin afterwards (and it even seemed to last a good 48 hours!) I would definitely go back just to use their amenities. Monthly to annual club memberships are also available. For more information go to: http://www.chateauberne.com/en/hotel-spa-provence.html
