Contemporary design and comfort meets 13th century gothic architecture and monastic tradition at the Hotellerie du Couvent Royal, which occupies an important historic convent building in Saint Maximin la Sainte Baume in the heart of Provence. Clean lines, modern furniture and bold colours contrast with exposed stone walls and terracotta tiled floors in the guestrooms. All rooms have satellite television and direct dial telephones, minibars and tea and coffee making facilities. DVD players are available on request.
Guests can enjoy drinks, coffees and cocktails in the lounge bar, which opens out into gardens, while browsing the daily papers, or even working online, thanks to wireless Internet access throughout the building. Breakfast, lunch and dinner take place in the restaurant beneath the stone vaulted ceiling and overlooking the peaceful cloister; contemporary French cuisine is on the menu. The front desk is open round the clock and has a safe deposit box and guests can enjoy breakfast in the comfort of their rooms thanks to room service. Facilities for business guests include computer rental and meeting and conference rooms. Knowledgeable staff can provide local information and tourist advice and health conscious guests can make use of the facilities at a nearby health and beauty centre (fee). Saint Maximin la Sainte Baume is a good point of departure for exploring the Provencal region. Cassis and its famous calanques, St Madeleine cave and monastery and the lively university town of Aix en Provence are all within 45 kilometres.
