Trip Summary

These two and three night breaks offer the most luxurious experience in the region, with accommodation in a sumptuous 5* hotel with incredible facilities, a private chauffeured vehicle to transport you as well as tours and tastings at your preferred Bandol and Cassis wineries. The package also includes several delicious meals for you to taste the best of the tasty and colourful Provençal cuisine.

Upon arrival in the region, check into your preferred room grade at the 5* Hotel and Spa du Castellet. The remainder of the afternoon and evening will be free for you to do as you please. You may wish to simply relax and enjoy the hotel’s superb facilities, take a dip in the pool or enjoy an apéritif on the lovely terrace. Alternatively, you may prefer to explore your charming surroundings independently.

On the morning of day two, you will be met at the hotel by a chauffeured vehicle, which will accompany throughout your day of tours on a private basis. This first day of tours and tastings will be spent in the well-known Bandol appellation to learn all about the local grape variety, Mourvèdre, and try the refreshing local rosé wines. Guests are free to choose their preferred three estates for tours and tastings. The Grape Escapes Provence specialists are happy to offer advice and make suggestions of wineries to visit. We would be pleased to discuss the various options with you and contact the individual estates accordingly. A delicious three course lunch will be served at the renowned Bistro de Jef of the Hostellerie Bérard. Drinks have not been included as part of this package, however you will be able to order and pay for them directly on the day.

In the evening an opulent gastronomic six course dinner (excluding drinks) will be served at the hotel’s triple Michelin-starred restaurant.
