My group of 3 was romanced by the age and history of le Jardin du Convent. I could list all the remarkable attributes of the property which photos can not do justice: the filtered sun in the huge garden with towering Sycamore tree, the arched windows and doors, the stained glass windows of the salon, abundant modern bathrooms, the wonderful sun room where we often read, and the spacious kitchen. Also, we found Rebecca gracious, professional and willing to answer repeated questions and offer travel advice. The local contact was also most responsive.
More importantly, the peacefulness and beauty of this carefully restored ancient building, now comfortable expansive Provencal home is an ideal destination to visit the region and live the lifestyle. We felt immersed in the experience of this house and this town. The kitchen left me wanting to cook boeuf bourguignon rather than sight-seeing! (I rarely cook!) We day-dreamed the scuffle of novice footsteps in the cloisters, and wondered what dignitaries the Mother Superior entertained in the grand salon.
My most vivid memory is of turning the 5” skeleton key in an ancient arched wooden door to enter the roadway behind the garden wall, and thinking, “pinch me, I’m living a dream!” I want to have this dream again: I will be back!
