An enchanting experience from the moment you step through the doors until the moment you leave. The owners are welcoming and embody "hospitality." Breakfast is served each morning in the old kitchen with fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee, tea along with fresh croissants and baguettes. Be sure to have dinner at least once during your stay. Cappucine, the owners' daughter,... More

We were excited about our stay at this place, because we wanted to experience staying in a chateau. However, what really made this stay so amazing was the great hospitality of the hosts and the staff. Every one we interacted with was kind and helpful and we felt that they were very sincere in making our stay as pleasant as... More

First...there are 84 steps to the top room (my husband counted). Was it worth it? Definitely. We arrived during Mistrial (high winds 1/3 of the year here) which I had heard of and it was rather exciting. Our room had a wonderful, huge room and a bath that could not be topped on our travels. Owners even invited us for... More

Stayed at the castle for 2 nights. The views from the room are incredible. Lovely breakfast served each morning. La Barben is a tiny town with only a zoo for an attraction. Luckily the town is only about a 10 minute drive to a wonderful town called Salon de Provence with plenty of shopping & restaurants to explore. Please be... More

This stay fulfilled my dream of staying in a castle! Lovely and hospitable owners. One piece of advice: it is a walk up a hill and stairs once inside so pack just an overnight bag to carry instead of a large suitcase.

If you want a VERY UNIQUE experience, this is it. Spend a night - or more - in a castle. Chateau de La Barben is an unbelievable experience. You sleep in the midst of history. It was kind of fun having the castle to ourselves and roaming around. You get the code to the front door and can come and... More

We have visited this magnificent castle twice and Bertrand and his family made us feel most welcome. This charming castle with beautifully decorated rooms and stunning views is a great place for a romantic retreat.

We stayed in the Elisa room (the one in the picture) and being the spoilt girl I am, I honestly felt like a little princess! This is a castle that has been through a few periods therefore expect a mix of decoration, nevertheless I think it´s fantastically adorned! We missed the last guided tour (in French) but they gave us... More

Magnificent stately home, beautifully kept, with outstanding welcome. The owners make you feel as if you visited relatives in the 18th century - with all the modern comfort. The views from the bedrooms are stunning.

A stunning, off the grid stay in an authentic fairy-tale 11th century castle. As a guest you will live in a beautifully appointed castle stepping into your own Beauty-and-the-Beast chateau opened as a museum by day but at night all your own with romance, mystery and the historic legends of past intrigues and object d'art. Each unique room is large-sized,... More
