Amazing hotel, modern interior decoration with a lot of details. The rooms are big and comfy, the swimming pool is the best! Big, not cold and a lot of sun. The 2 restaurants are very good. It was a trip with my grandma and my mum and we had a wonderful stay. The view is stunning, Mane village is beautiful... More

If what you want is to be left alone, then this is the place for you. The Hotel, situated in a former convent, specializes in peace, quiet and disconnection from the outside world. We stayed three nights in June/July 2015, and found the décor in the hotel an interesting mixture of minimalist and modern. There are pink lounging chairs in... More

One of the most disappointing stay in a long list of luxury places I've visited. Decoration: Stark under acid on a tight leach budget. Though the website pictures show you a modern but rather classy/classic decoration, our room (007) and the adjacents (which were open for cleaning the day we left and confirmed we were not a singled-out victim of...

From the moment we arrived we knew were in for a treat!! The facilities, the surrounding, the room and most importantly, the service were outstanding!!! Max really took care of us, he honestly made a difference, he added a very personal touch to our stay!!! He even washed our car for us... Thank you Max! You spoilt us!!!

The delight of this hotel begins well before it is reached. Difficult to locate even on a second and third attempt, Le Couvent des Minimes is tucked away on the edge of a tiny village, a collection of narrow streets perched on the side of a hill. This we discovered on our first approach after a wrong turn but the... More

The couvent des minimes is in a magnificent place. The grounds are glorious and the newly renovated hall is very nice. The chef is very good although the prices in the restaurants are outrageous. The people are helpful, although their knowledge of the area isn't extensive. The pool is very nice. So is the gym. This is the good. The... More

Le Couvent has a pretty setting just below Mane, a small hill village with a couple of restaurants, bakery, post office which are walking distance from the hotel. The location is good for relaxing or exploring as it's easy to access the villages of the Luberon, the mountains to the east and Aix or Marseille to the south. Forcalquier is... More

Came here for our honeymoon. Very comfortable and relaxing. Not much restaurants in surrounding area but food at the in house restaurant is excellent. Used the SPA facilities as well but at that time that was some renovation going on so a bit noise which affected the SPA experience.

I found this hotel a delightful surprise. The owner Fabien is a very pleasant fellow who greets all his guests. Set among lush vineyards and vegetation and seeped in a historical setting, this property provides something for everyone - romantic getaways, a gastronomic vacation, adventure/sports, friends' long weekend, or even for a corporate retreat. It has 2 gastronomic restaurants and... More
