Overview

Chateau De Berne

Currently not available, please see our similar experiences: Culinary Vacations in Provence, France.

This wonderful estate and Relais & Chateaux hotel is nestled in the heart of Provence, between Nice and Marseille and just outside the charming village of Lorgues. The estate is surrounded by vineyards and forests, and at its heart is the Chateau’s 5-star ‘auberge,’ your home for the week, along with the cooking school and the winery, both key ingredients your culinary adventure. It really is like a bit of heaven on earth!

The Chateau de Berne and its 5-star Auberge are a luxurious, calm, and sophisticated place, having hosted events for such large international companies as Mazda, L’Oreal, Ferrari. New additions to this amazing estate include a gorgeous spa, a new restaurant in the auberge, and a charming bistro in the winery (complete with a Provencal boutique filled with enticing local products). And in the afternoon, enjoy a stop in the lounge by the fireplace for afternoon tea!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cooking classes at the Chateau De Berne. The accommodations were just fantastic. The place is totally remodeled and it was just outstanding.  All of the employees there really take their job seriously and catered to our every whim.  I would whole heartedly recommend it to any of my friends.  We rented the car in Avignon after our train ride from Paris and then turned it in at the Nice Airport.  All went smooth.  Thanks again for all you did for us to make this trip special.

Trip Details

Your 2 cooking lessons with Chef Louis and his team will introduce you a Provencal style of cooking, in which he turns simple local produce into astonishing and tempting dishes. Louis loves spending time in the kitchen’s vegetable, herb, and flower garden, where he finds his inspiration for his seasonal menus. He chooses the best and freshest ingredients from the garden as well as from the famous market in Lorgues for the hands-on classes that take place in either the garden among the olive trees or inside the wine cellar.
