Relaxation and leisure at the heart of the Couvent des Minimes Hotel and L’Occitane Spa

Herb garden

An inexhaustible source of inspiration, the herb garden is cultivated on the Provençal raised terraces among the former depictions of the 14 Stations of the Cross.

Simon, the Couvent’s gardener, will be only too happy to show you the dozens of varieties in our herb, vegetable and ornamental gardens on this exceptional site.

The Couvent des Minimes, which stretches over several hectares, is dedicated to plants and Mediterranean varieties. Each plant has its own special vocation, whether for their taste, smell or sight. Classic, unusual and wild plants are just waiting to be discovered as you stroll through our gardens.

Sports facilities and the Spa

Feel like some exercise?

Outside, the Couvent des Minimes Hotel and L’Occitane Spa has a swimming pool and a lighted tennis court. It also boasts one of the most beautiful petanque pitches Provence has to offer: located with a beautiful park, opposite the raised terraces and with the Provençal landscape as a backdrop.

Inside, you will find a spa and a gym. Take advantage of cutting-edge fitness technology (Technogym) with fitted television screens: treadmills, elliptical bikes, muscle-building equipment and a stretching area. Cold water, towels and towelettes are at your disposal. Enjoy the swimming pool with massage jets, saunas, steam rooms and varied range of treatments at our spa.

Golf lovers should pay a visit to the 18-hole Luberon Golf Club, set in a natural park with swathes of Provençal colours, in a majestic setting in Pierrevert, just 20km from the Couvent.


The library, located next to the bar, with its cosy fireplace, has a wide range of reading material on offer (comics, novels, crime thrillers, books and brochures about the region, and much more), but also videos, CDs and DVDs. In the quiet and peaceful atmosphere, take some time out to unwind. As you turn the pages, listen to the notes, or watch the changing images, give in to your curiosity and let yourself be carried away in a daydream.
