We got a junior suite and the room is quite cute with door to a huge balcony that overlook the lavender field and outside. Clean sheets clean space, but there are something that they can do better. - the closet space really doesn't hold the suitcase and that door is in the way. - the lighting is so weird, i... More

Property is absolutely stunning with amazing lobby, pool and spa areas and lots of areas to sit out and relax. Local village, Mane, isn't nice but local town, Forcalquier, is busier and has a few nice shops and restaurants. We ate in 9 restaurant one night. Service in the hotel is of mixed quality. In the restaurants it is generally... More

This hotel is a disaster when it comes to service. Never before have I experienced such a lack of competence and basic social skills. Parts of the staff are plain rude. Everything is very slow. I noticed however that other guest were treated more kindly than us so it might be that the staff simply disliked us cause we had... More

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

Dear valuable guest, Thank you to choose Le Couvent des Minimes during your last stay in Provence. This place is a bubble out of the time.

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!!!

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.
