Across the hillsides of haute Provence, this 13th century convent is officially listed as a historical monument and has been restored with the greatest respect for its original design, where contemporary and traditional materials have been carefully matched. It is truly a haven of peace and the cloister gardens invite guests to discover a multitude of fragrant flowers and fruit trees in an orchard of bygone species. This convent is used as a research and training center specializing in participative activities relating to the senses, especially taste and smell, for the general public. Committed to respecting standards for sustainable development, this outstanding site is a perfect combination of history and elegance.
