5-star luxury Hotel in Provence – Couvent des Minimes
Hotel and L’OCCITANE Spa

Dear friends,

I know we have been discreet over the last couples of months but the reason why we have kept silent here, at Couvent des Minimes, is because we have been busy writing a new chapter in our history.

Maintaining religiously its bell tower, its terraces and its secular vaults, our hotel will shortly go through a total transformation.

To carry out its metamorphosis keeping in mind the importance to preserve its authenticity, we will soon bring forward new surprises to you. This is why we plan to reopen in 2023, it might seem long but it’s definitely worth it.

Redesigned around more spacious areas, totally renewed, more chic and refined, you will just be charmed!

You loved Couvent des Minimes, you’re about to adore it.

More to come. In the meantime, take great care of yourself.

Fabien Piacentino,

Directeur Général du Couvent des Minimes
