In the heart of the historic town of Pezenas, a former 18th century convent has been tastefully converted into four spacious, stylishly designed apartments with quirky sculptures, a mix of comfortable and antique furniture and a wonderful sense of space and light. The Secret Garden – you would never know a garden of this size exists in the centre of Pezenas – offers a sunny pool area, private dining terraces and shady spaces under the trees. Just a two minute walk from the nearest baker and 5 minutes to the centre of Pezenas with it’s many cafes, restaurants and wine bars, you won’t need to use the car except for exploring all the other fabulous areas of the Languedoc!
The “secret garden” of the Couvent is a large walled garden with a choice of sun or shade, spaces for play and for relaxation and a wonderful sunny pool area with 9×6 m green-tiled pool. In the garden barbeques are also provided and use of the Summer Kitchen is open for all guests.
Once inside this garden you would never know you are in a lively town.
The centre of Pezenas is just two minutes’ walk away. Adults can enjoy the cafes, restaurants and wine bars plus all the street festivals and wine tastings without having to drive. Pezenas also has lots of galleries and workshops, some good shopping and is famous for its antiques. You can spend hours browsing the 40 or so antiques shops along the main street in Pezenas.
A little further afield there is the Mediterranean with its beautiful long, sandy beaches, rivers and lakes for swimming, hiking in the Languedoc National Park, visits to medieval villages, seafood lunches on the Etang de Thau, wine tasting at the many local wineries and much more.
The apartments are 120 – 130sqm so very spacious for 4-6 people. They all have two en-suite bedrooms on the second floor, an open plan living / kitchen / dining leading onto a private dining terrace on the ground floor and a mezzanine floor for further living or sleeping space. See Apartments for details.
A wifi network is also available.
The Couvent is ideally located for an active or a relaxing holiday, your choice! The weather here in May, June, September and October is often better than a good Summer’s day in the UK or anywhere else “up north” and our weekly bookings in the off peak seasons are great value for 2 couples or groups of friends.
The months of July and August are our most popular time so please book early to avoid disappointment.
The Couvent is perfect for a family holiday in Summer as it offers the pool and garden, the attractions of Pezenas itself, it’s an easy drive to the beaches or rivers.
In May, June, September and October it’s a great place for a break and great value for two couples or friends sharing an apartment. We take group bookings also so for a group holiday away we can accommodate up to 24 people for a week or a long weekend.
We are working on specialist “antiquing” holidays and details will be published soon.
