The Chateau de Berne is a lovely destination. The location, the grounds, the equipment of the hotel are all very good. I would not dispute the very positive evaluations prepared by other guests.
My more balanced evaluation relate to two elements. That hotel is very remote from its environment. You will not hear the "provencal accent", neither will you discover anything Provencal in the place. I have visited Provence many times, once for months, and my personal appreciation is that one who would choose the Chateau de Berne to discover Provence will stay at distance to the country. This said, I want to be understood: this place is very very nice, located among vineyards in vast hilly and forested surroundings.
Rooms have nothing extraordinary. They are comfortable, but not luxurious.
I mentioned two elements. My second disappointment relates to the food. For dinner, the only option is a gastronomical restaurant. The restaurant is good the first day, but I doubt that one wants to repeat refined tastings every evening. The breakfast is offered at 26 Euros per person. It may be fine with you, but in my opinion this is ridiculous. You can get a breakfast for two at the village for one tenth of that amount.
So, the place, if very nice, is disconnected of its environment. Still you can drive around, so I could have lived with that. However, the limited and too costly meal options lead us to go to Lorgues, a charming village close-by (8 Km), for breakfast and dinner. Taking that into account our 6 days stay became less comfortable and luxurious.
