Hostellerie Brard & Spa gives pride of place to hospitality and the delights of Provence's genteel lifestyle, thanks to its charming rooms and suites, pretty pool, and Michelin star-rated gastronomic restaurant. Hostellerie Brard & Spa is not just a single house: it is actually a cluster of buildings in the heart of the village; including the "Bastide des Saveurs", with its pretty blue shutters, the "Pavillon des Peintres" (Artists' Pavilion), the 11th-century "Couvent" (ancient monastery) and "Les Remparts" (Ramparts).

Tucked away in a typical Provencal village, between Le Castellet and Bandol, this charming hotel is the ideal venue for a quiet, gourmet holiday, coupled with a host of leisure opportunities under the sunny skies of the Var area. This 3-star hotel features 37 character-filled rooms and suites (including 3 rooms at the beautiful "Bastide des Saveurs", located 3 kilometers from the village). Each room has its own very different, but equally endearing personality, decorated in the colors of the south with olive greens, Mediterranean blues, and cherry reds.
