Beautifully Restored Old Convent - Family-Friendly Couvent de Tarascon with Pool & Patio
Description from the manager
Le Couvent de Tarascon was originally a convent of the 17th century located in the center of a beautiful old Provencal town. This authentic historical site has been renovated and decorated with modern taste and high quality furniture, and the iconic residence is located within a ten minute walk to a variety of shops and restaurants. At the border of Alpilles and Luberon, you will enjoy strolling throughout this charming medieval landscape with its arches, old houses and meneaux windows.
Cool off in the swimming pool at Le Couvent de Tarascon, or just unwind with a crisp glass of champagne in the covered patio with a lounge area and billiards table. Indoors, you will find a home cinema, television, DVD player and Hi-Fi sound. If you need to get some work done while you are in France, you will also find an office and Wi-Fi access. Baby equipment and laundry facilities are also provided. Your reservation includes housekeeping.
The interior courtyard of Le Couvent de Tarascon is no doubt its pice de rsistance. Harken back to a more romantic era as you delight in the original architectural elements that have been preserved at this property. The interiors are full of cozy nooks and alcoves that foster a charming ambience during your stay in Provence. The villa also features two fully equipped kitchens for your convenience.
Five gorgeous bedrooms accommodate up to ten fortunate guests at Le Couvent de Tarascon. Two of the bedrooms provide en-suite bathrooms. Choice beddings and accoutrements provided tranquil nights of sleep with the gentle fragrances of lavender and thyme on the country breeze.
During your stay at Le Couvent de Tarascon, recommendations for nearby day trips include Isle Sur La Sorgue, a picturesque town built around a series of canals, and the village of Apt where you might charter a hot air balloon ride at Montgolfiere Vol Terre. Golfers will be excited to be in proximity of several excellent courses including Servanes, Pont Royal and the Provence Country Club. The Alpilles area also provides a number of opportunities to experience the rich French culture and history, from castles such as Chteau de Tarascon and Chteau des Baux, along with the third century archeological site of a once flourishing city at Glanum. Bon voyage!
