This is a fine establishment in every way, a lovely country inn in a beautiful setting. The Berger family is friendly and helpful. In our case they mailed us an item we had carelessly left behind. There is a splendid pool which, like everything else is spotlessly maintained. Best of all: the prices are highly reasonable compared to comparable places... More

Great location, if you have a car. Lovely french house/hotel. in the countryside. We ate at a restaurant in the nearby village as the hotel wasn't providing evening meals. Buffet breakfast was provided however.

Beautiful well appointed and well managed property. The hotel comprises a number of older buildings that have been modernized. The rooms have air-conditioning. The bathrooms are large and beautifully tiled. Our room had shower only not bath. The hotel is run by the family that owns it. all members of the family and other other staff were pleasant and helpful.... More

What a charming hotel. We stayed here one night during our bicycle tour around Provence, but I would have liked to stay longer. Everything in Le Charembeau was perfect. Fresh breakfast, most friendly service, two magnificent pools: warm and bit cooler. The garden and fields around were most beautiful and I do not forget the lovely evening lighting and most... More

This hotel is situated In The countryside, well away from the main roads. The only sounds you hear are the birds. Having stayed here a number of times, I can highly recommend this charming French hotel run by a friendly family. The situation is perfect for walkers and those who require peace and quiet, I would highly recommend this hotel.... More

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
