Family Friendly Holidays

The apartments at the Couvent des Ursulines are very popular with families during school holiday periods and in the Summer months most of our guests are families with kids of all ages.

The enclosed garden allows parents a worry free holiday, knowing the kids can run around and play as they like without access to the road or other dangers, the garden has been designed to have open space to run around in and there’s nothing that can be damaged in terms of delicate plants or ornamental pottery.

We arrived at the Couvent des Ursulines on a rainy Saturday but nevertheless when we walked through the gates we were enchanted by the beauty of the property. It’s a stunning propery and the accomodations are really quite large and the bathrooms are grand. We went with our two year old and it was great because she was able to play in the garden while we sat on the terrace drinking coffees.

Then of course there’s the pool – always a favourite with kids of all ages! The pool has an alarm so if anything over 5KG falls in, the alarm is set off. Please do note that parents are responsible for monitoring their children while at the pool.

Inside, the apartments are designed with style yet with functionality and comfort in mind.  There is plenty of space for kids and adults to have their own space with a mezzanine, the main living area, the terrace and the garden all as available play space.

I have never written a review before but am compelled to write this …
We all adored it. The teens lazed about by the lovely chlorine free pool and were able to wander safely into the charming town of Pezenas. The inclusion of wi-fi meant they could get their occasional “Techno fix” ! Our youngest had all she needed too… a pool and space to wander with shady spots and hammock /swingseats etc. ….and yet all within the safe confines of Convent walls ( so we could see her at all times though she couldn’t see us !) We all completely relaxed here. The apartments were beautiful…. tasteful and clean ! The bathrooms and bedrooms were very comfortable and we loved the stylish decor….a mixture of antique and modern.

I would like to point out that, as per the many photos on this website, the apartments have spiral staircases!

We can provide cots, high chairs and stair guards for younger children so please advise us in advance when you make your booking.

My husband and I had a lovely 2 weeks here with our 2 young children here. The garden is lovely – very peaceful – lots of shade – with a special feel to it. For the first time in his life my very busy 4 year old buy spent some time “chilling” by himself in the swinging chair seats and hammocks. The apartments are as exactly as you would expect from the careful descriptions on the web site. My only “complaint” would be that the metal spiral staircase along with the open mezzanine was not the most practical with an active toddler – but don’t let that put you off. We fully recommend this place.
