Lonely Planet review
Hidden behind a wall in the old town, this enormous five-room maison d’hôte occupies a 17th-century former convent. Staying here is as much architectural experience as accommodation: soaring ceilings, stonework, grand staircase, plus five palatial rooms (one has a sink made from a baptismal font). There's a sweet garden, and breakfast is served in the old convent refectory.
Our independent authors have visited Le Couvent and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Apt.
Description provided by property
Set in a former convent dating back to the 17th-century, Le Couvent is located in Apt in the heart of the Luberon region. It features an outdoor swimming pool, garden, terrace with sun beds and free Wi-Fi.
The rooms with garden views have floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings. Some also have exposed wooden beams. All have a flat-screen TV and bathroom with bath or shower, hairdryer and free toiletries.
Every morning, a continental breakfast featuring homemade jam is served in the large dining room by the fireplace or in the garden, on the terrace. Restaurants are located 50 metres away.
Le Couvent is a good starting point to explore the Luberon hill-top villages. Bikes can be rented on site and guests can go hiking, tree or rock climbing in the area. They can also drive 8 km to Villars’s golf or 18 km to visit Gordes. Roussillon is a 9-km drive away while Sénanque Abbey is 25 km away.
