Le Couvent des Minimes
Home to the first L'Occitane hotel spa, this property offers an elegant, indulgent escape.
Dating back to 1613, this historic hotel and spa enjoys a picturesque location in rural Provence. Though its stone architecture may be rustic, its services are anything but. This former convent and hospice is home to the first L'Occitane hotel spa. L'Occitane's products are developed in the region, and to complement them, honey, verbena and lavender from the estate — as well as shea butter from a fair trade women's cooperative — are incorporated into treatments. Along with a laconium, caldarium and saunas, the spa also offers a chromotherapy indoor pool and numerous anti-aging therapies. Guest rooms and suites display a subtle shabby chic take on modern French country style. Le Cloître restaurant serves gastronomic fare with an emphasis on the art of entertaining, while Le Pesquier provides a casual bistro experience. Wine lovers will appreciate the relaxed mood at the Le Caveau des Minimes lounge.
