After staying for 5 nights with a group of friends, all I can say about this place is "Wow"!! The level of hospitality and service that were offered are unparalleled. Each breakfast is a gourmet experience comparable to a Michelin starred restaurant, with many of the ingredients having been freshly picked from the inn's own gardens. The rooms are very... More

During my trip across California, I had the great idea to stop at the Chanric Inn for two nights. Joel welcomed me with a glass of champagne which marked the start of a dream-like holiday. This place is special. It really felt like home. A soft blanket over my feet, warm in front of a designed fireplace, sipping the best... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed the Chanric and very happy you felt at home during your stay. Summer is coming and we will be serving the brunch in the patio soon, new recipes with a taste of Provence to enjoy even more the lavender and roses blooming actually. We hope your next trip to USA will lead you again... More

A very special place. Incredible design taste and a fantastic, romantic stay. We loved Joel, the Inn keeper and owner -- a chef with incredible design taste. His attention to detail made our stay one to remember. We found beautiful art in every corner of this space. My friend and I liked to imagine this was our home and we... More

Beautiful artwork all over the property. The decor is upscale modern, inside of a charming Victorian. Our room was small but incredibly relaxing, with a window looking out at the garden and pool (towards the back). I wish I had brought my swimsuit so I could have used the hot tub! Surprised to see previous comments about noise; this was... More

Thank you so much for the great review! We are happy you enjoyed our beautiful house and appreciated the services.
