The art of good living
A family affair dating back over 50 years
The story began in 1969, when Danièle and René Bérard fell in love with the village of La Cadière d’Azur. Danièle was a queen of interior design, René a king of cooking. They took up the gauntlet together and the Hostellerie Bérard gastronomic restaurant rapidly became a must-do eatery for crews from the nearby Paul Ricard racetrack and many local figures. After the late nineties culinary golden age, they swept up their first Michelin star in 2006. Offering an unforgettable foray into Provencal flavours, Hostellerie Bérard also promises a genuine voyage of the senses thanks to its 500 m² AromaSpa inspired by Roman baths. And why not treat yourself to a night at the hotel’s cluster of four ancient buildings: La Bastide, Le Couvent (an 11th-century ancient monastery) the 19th-century Pavillon des Peintres or Les Remparts. Each offers a cosy nest combining luxury and soothing Provencal lifestyle. What’s more, most of the suites and rooms boast sweeping views over the vineyards of Bandol. Simply magical.
