very nicely reworked monastery. We had a cool room with nice furniture and good bathroom. Hosts were very friendly and willing to give top tips on restaurants, nice spots in the neighbourhood...and fresh breakfast.

Depends what you want and need. The Couvent was an old convent (as the name suggests) and they have deliberately kept that spare look -- if you don't like that do not come. Spacious rooms. Top continental breakfast, do not know what some people have complained about. Yes quiet in the middle of Apt -- but Apt itself is boring... More

Renovated convent centrally located. Plenty of street parking. Friendly hosts and a nice selection of foods for the included breakfast. Various levels and common areas with outdoor terraces. There is also a swimming pool. Friendly hosts.

This was the most charming B&B in the Luberon Mountains of Provence. It is a former Convent built in the 17th century which was beautifully restored by the owner who is a wonderful host. The rooms are enormous and very well appointed with a mix of antiques and modern furnishings. The bathrooms are large and beautifully finished with double sinks,... More

not a big name but a very nicely renovated B&B. very friendly staff/owner. if you can make it to the 4th floor, no elevator, get that room. (a 5th floor in US counting). the pool is not ready yet for big time and no fitness room.

This was a lovely find right in the Centre of Apt, an old convent tastefully renovated and very simply decorated. There was a minibar on a trust basis and free wifi. Very friendly and the owner spoke excellent English.

Stayed here for a night in late August, had the top floor after seeing a positive review on TA. Huge room with nice views. Stereo in the shower was a cool touch :) Owners are super helpful and the breakfast was superb. Late checkin as is usual in this region but Apt is cute enough to while away a few... More

Le Couvent as the name suggests, was a Convent in ages past. Situated on the edge of the ancient part of the city, it is an eclectic mix of old and new with period furniture cheek by jowl with minmalism - and it works. From the huge bedroom, the up to the minute bathroom, swimming pool in the front garden... More

Le Couvent rounded up top of our list after 12 nights stay at various cities. The moment we stepped in, we felt the uniqueness of this place. It is rustic, cozy, charming, fragrant ( from the Lavender planted around) and a pure joy. Each room is full of character. Lauren, the owner did most of the remodeling himself and you... More
