“A delightful place”
Reviewed March 14, 2010

A must for couples, families or friends to relax. Run by very friendly couple and their two adorable kids, I could not have chosen a better place to relax with my two teenagers. I also liked the friendly owners Jean Francois & Nikki as well as their well mannered 2 toddler boys. As for me it will be my annual retreat for a very long time.I highly recommend it.

Do not be put off by the one bad review below. My husband and I had a lovely 2 weeks here with our 2 young children here. The garden is lovely - very peaceful - lots of shade - with a special feel to it. For the first time in his life my very busy 4 year old buy spent some time "chilling" by himself in the swinging chair seats and hammocks. The appartments are as exactly as you would expect from the careful descriptions on the web site. My only "complaint" would be that the metal spiral staircase along with the open mezzzanine was not the most pratical with an active toddler - but don't let that put you off. We fully recommend this place.

We stayed here over a fortnight period with various family combinations ,as we had a 19 year old boy , two 14 year old girls and a 6 year old girl , plus Grandparents. The teenagers stayed for one week and then a couple went home to be replaced by the pensioners !
I have never written a review before but am compelled to write this ..............
We all adored it. The teens lazed about by the lovely chlorine free pool and were able to wander safely into the charming town of Pezenas. The inclusion of wi-fi meant they could get their occasional "Techno fix" ! Our youngest had all she needed too... a pool and space to wander with shady spots and hammock /swingseats etc. ....and yet all within the safe confines of Convent walls ( so we could see her at all times though she couldn't see us !) We all completely relaxed here. The appartments were beautiful.... tasteful and clean ! The bathrooms and bedrooms were very comfortable and we loved the stylish decor....a mixture of antique and modern. The hosts are a delightful couple with 2 lovely sons. They also own a gorgeous coffee shop which my husband says makes the best coffee in France ( and he should know....he is a coffee bore !)
Go there ! You will not be disappointed !!

We booked this property for the first week of our 3 week holday based on the hyperbole on their website (and which is reproduced in a guidebook). We were unpleasantly received and were appalled when we entered the euphemism for a garden which is just scrubland and totally uninviting. There was a tiny terrace with a couple of chairs and one hammock to share between the 4 properties (thoughts of the German towel race) which in fact faces the washing line with the refuse bins behind. We could not face the green coloured swimming pool expecting it to be full of tadpoles or newts so remained inside. The interior consisted of a large uncomfortable leather sofa and a dining table and chairs. The kitchen was minutely situated in a corner and was only just big enough to turn round in. We couldn't face using the cooker. The spiral staircase made suitcase carrying very difficult going up and almost impossible coming down. On the mezzanie floor is a dreadful futon and a TV apparently showing French TV only ( didn't even try it). The bedrooms weren't much better. We left as soon as we were able to arrange other accommodation the next day !

It's the first time we got this kind of comment and we're sade about it! This our house and by welcoming our guest, we only wish them to have a good time. This place is very family oriented, therefore as the many site that referre us, I believe it describe very well the environment. This retired couple mentioned "garbage" wich is very different from a compost area!
I hope however these people will have enjoy whichever other place they will have found.
For inquiries, don't hesitate to call us, we want to be sure you'll get what you expect and more...!

We stayed here after a disappointing experience at another BnB close by. It was such an improvement on the other convent we staye d in in Roujan. This place is absolutely lovely, from the sheets to the garden to the architecture. Plus the little town Pezanas is very charming. A perfect romantic getaway. Thank you for saving our holiday for us!

We arrived at the Couvent des Ursulines on a rainy Saturday but nevertheless when we walked through the gates we were enchanted by the beauty of the property. It's a stunning propery and the accomodations are really quite large and the bathrooms are grand. We went with our two year old and it was great because she was able to play in the garden while we sat on the terrace drinking coffees. What's also really good about this place is that you are a 2 minute walk away from the center of Pezenas so you don't need to drive anywhere. The couple who run the convent also own a cafe in town called Cardomone which serves the nicest coffee and grape juice for the kids. Pezenas is centrally located and it wasn't more than an hour's drive to Carcassone, Montpellier and the Corbiere wine region.

I would definitely go back to Couvent Des Ursulines as four days didn't seem long enough.

The 5 of us have just come back from the Couvent des Ursulines (Late June 06).I did originally found the place on trip advisor and I must say we were not disappointed.

Jean Francois and Nikki relaxed approach put us at ease straight away,the spacious apartment , garden and swimming pool were just as expected and more. The convent is ideally situated just a few minutes walk from the medieval town centre. I usually got up early and walked to the bakery to buy some lovely French pastry and bread just out the oven!
I would highly recommend the place and would definitely go back.
Thanks for a fantastic week!
