We arrived late at night so didn't see the art in the garden until the morning--the sculptures add to the beautiful grounds. The hotel is well managed and the rooms well equipped with bathroom accessories. We enjoyed our breakfast too-- classic French breakfast of good coffee, fruit and croissants. I particularly liked the sense of muted style and class of... More

Recently returned from a perfect week's stay here while trying to fly my hot air balloon in between the mistral winds blowing a gale... And this was the perfect spot to unwind while waiting for the weather to do the right thing - the best breakfasts imaginable with lashings of fresh fruit, yoggie & delicious croissants breads with home made...

As part of a cycling holiday in Provence, my husband and I stayed at Le Charembeau for 2 nights. Every detail was exceptional- breakfast on the terrace overlooking beautiful countryside, L'Occitaine toiletries in the bathroom, adapters found for our phones, picnic made for the day we left with a punnet of local fruit etc. We will definitely be coming back...

Everything about this place was just perfect! We had a room with a little balcony overlooking the countryside. We rented bicycles and the staff helped us choose a great route, complete with lunch at a little local bistro. Stayed two nights, but could have stayed longer.

Beautiful surroundings and a splendid agroturisimo-style place. Spacious room with everything you need; L'Occitane toiletries in a well-designed bathroom - and minibar plus corkscrew - all good things I was not expecting. Comfortable, firm beds with lovely linen, bolster and square pillow-style. Very clean. I was impressed by the high standards of housekeeping throughout the hotel. I really liked the... More

Only stayed one night, but would have been happy to stay longer. The room was extremely spacious and of great quality. We stayed the night before a hot-air balloon flight, which required us to leave before breakfast was being served; the hotel delivered a tray, cooler, and thermos of coffee for us the evening before so that we could eat...

Four of us stayed there for four nights and we only wished to stay for more! What a beautiful place! Views over snowy tops of Alps, gorgeous gardens surrounding and country fields around. The building itself and the decor very true to the character of this old country farm. Super clean and comfortable rooms and beds, tasty breakfasts and in... More

We spent 5 nights at the estate, 2 families & 5 kids. The hotel was recommended by friends, and they were right ! The location is very comfortable for day trips in Provence - 1-2 hours drive to all the major sites. Situated in the countryside, very green. You immediately feel classy ... The kids had a great time with... More

We stayed at this lovely little gem in September 2012. Truly the most enchanting part of our trip. So serene and peaceful......the scenery was amazing! We were able to upgrade to a nicer room and it was so worth it. The scent of beeswax and lavender in the hotel was gorgeous! We found Sandra and her husband to be so... More

This is one of those places you hope to find by accident. I can say that it was the highlight of our travels in Provence and having stayed in room 4 for 5 nights while exploring the region, found no fault. It is a family run hotel set in beautiful gardens with sculptures, all in a rural setting amongst rolling... More
