Beautifully decorated hotel, I loved the contrast of old building and modern interior. Fantastic food; much preferred the bistro rather than the Gastro restaurant. All in all: apart from the fact that we didn't have a full length mirror in the room (#6) and the wifi constantly needs username and password to reconnect (and in the main hotel areas such... More

We had a lovely stay in the hotel despite the fact that we definitely stayed too long. One night yes, more no.It was our first stop in Provence. We enjoyed the restaurant and the spa Loccitane treatments are delicious. Our room was far too small with no view on the countryside.

This hotel enchants you when you first step in with all the design work, its colours and its natural light and even with the chic and elegant uniforms which lady employees wear. It is located on a green hill where you can see the amazing view of lavender fields as you chill in the restaurant or as you have your... More

The interior design of the main hall in the hotel is certainly nice. But some points made our less stay less pleasant: A coffee at the pools costs 10 Eur. A water on the room 8 Eur. The minibar only has 4 drinks: Water, cola (classic and light) and lemonade. The room was rather small and there was no balcony.... More

Having written reviews for hotels this year, I realised we never reviewed this hotel. So in retrospect... We had a lovely stay in wonderful Provençal surroundings, with the smell of lavender in the breeze and fields of sunflowers glowing around the hotel. Food was outstanding so it was always something to look forward to in the evening - genuinely good... More

We were lucky to arrive before the busy season and found the overall experience to be very pleasant. The porter helped carry our bags from our car to our room and check in was easy. The interior lobby was a perfect balance between the old infrastructure/what used to be a convent until the property was purchased by L'Occitane and modern... More

When you enter you are greeted by the welcoming staff and helpful manager who assisted me with my bags. The sorbet of colors that cover the tufted seating was a delight to the eyes.

I really wanted to like Le Couvent des Minimes, it was the first break me and my husband had after a long time. My impressions were mixed. The hotel itself (lounge, terrace, gardens) were beautiful, well designed and maintained. The massages were excellent, one of the best I've had (and I've had a lot :). The food in the restaurant...

Set atop the charming and quiet hilltop town of Mane (near Forcalquier) is the wonderful and beguiling Le Couvent. We enjoyed four glorious days at this gem, and the staff, accommodation, amenities and ambience could not have been better. The only carp I have was the lack of TV (i.e. English speaking channels) due to the satellite dish being down,... More

First thing we noticed arriving at the hotel was that we had to walk with our luggage from a parking situated a few hundred meters away. Arriving at the reception it's safe to say it was under staffed. Only 1 receptionist attending to several guests. Next deception was the room. Several things that you would expect from a 5 star...
