A Day in the Couvent des Minimes

Between its cultural heritage and its sensorial pleasures, our worries are washed away when we arrive in this peaceful haven in Mane en Provence.

This five-star hotel is a little gem: to plan a stay in the Couvent des Minimes is to discover the other Luberon, but also to choose a location that offers just the right mix of relaxation and culinary delights. With its two restaurants, one gastronomic and the other traditional, the entire experience of Mediterranean cuisine is available to your taste buds, thanks to chef Philippe Guérin and his team: regional products, organic produce, a love of small producers and a simple creativity—these are the secrets of these excellent restaurants that flirt with stardom. " Le Spa" by L’Occitane, the only place of its kind in Europe, plunges you into the brand’s own world and into a discovery of the essential virtues of Provencal products, made in Manosque only a few kilometers away. Here, you can enjoy a private and privileged visit to one of the most enjoyable places in Provence…
