A former Cistercian monastery converted into a guesthouse


Nestled amidst the serene landscapes of Provence, France, Monastère de Ségriès is a tranquil retreat steeped in history and charm. In 1995, Annemarie and Dhruv were fortunate to acquire this historic monastery, embarking on a passionate renovation with the help of family and friends. Situated in a gentle valley, this enchanting place, once left to rack and ruin, now beckons visitors with its serene allure.

Set within the heart of the national park, le parc naturel du Verdon, the Monastère de Ségriès stands as a former Cistercian monastery transformed into a convivial and tranquil guest house for groups traveling in the area.

Within the monastery’s grounds, guests can discover a multitude of enchanting spaces, including the cloister, the centuries-old garden, the vegetable garden, and a refreshing swimming pool. Decorated with simple yet elegant touches, the monastery boasts 25 en-suite rooms, each offering intimacy and relaxation.

Located just 6km from Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, one of France’s most beautiful villages, Monastère de Ségriès offers easy access to cobbled streets, shaded squares, and renowned faïence pottery.

Wellness Options:

Living on-site themselves, Annemarie and Dhruv extend a warm invitation to recharge in the delightful natural habitat of Monastère de Ségriès. Relax in the dappled shade of bamboo within the cloister, savoring the bitter aroma of boxwood as you stroll to the natural spring. Guests can also unwind in the sauna, take a refreshing dip in the pool, or maintain their fitness routine in the designated fitness area.

Bask in the sun beside the pool or embark on evening strolls, captivated by the magnificent sunsets that grace the skies. The monastery’s tranquil setting is ideal for personal development retreats, art workshops, and musical events.

With versatile spaces ranging from dance studios to massage parlors, the extensive grounds offer endless opportunities for rejuvenation and self-discovery.
