CHAMBRE D'HOTE BED, BREAKFAST & EVENING MEAL A COUPLE OF NIGHTS OR A LONGER STAY
Known in French as Le Couvent, The Old Convent School is a gorgeously comfortable 200-year-old restored convent boarding school for twelve girls. Full of art and books and perched on the side of a beautiful valley overlooking the handful of houses and river of St Just sur Viaur, Le Couvent is a country paradise that feels like the middle of nowhere and yet is only 30 minutes from world heritage town Albi and many beautiful medieval Bastide towns and villages.
English-run Le Couvent welcomes individuals, couples, small groups and families preferably for a minimum of two nights (although please ask if you're just passing through and need a bed for the night). You can relax and enjoy the house, garden and village, or use us as a base to explore the area by car, on foot or by bicycle (there are two bikes for your use).
Whether it's a couple of days chill-out, a base for exploring the area, a writers' or artists' retreat, an organised group (e.g. walkers, bird-watchers or photographers), or longer stays for families or group of friends, you'll find the everything you need to make your stay special.
