Relais & Châteaux has the Provence hotel scene sewn up, especially now that the company has put its stamp on Le Couvent des Minimes, a country hideaway near the eastern edge of the Luberon Valley. Set in a former convent, this 46-room retreat welcomes visitors with a cloistered courtyard and strategically placed bouquets of lavender— all handpicked from the terraced herb garden and used in the full-service spa, the first in France from Provençal cosmetics company L’Occitane. We loved the Cassine suite, which looks out onto a carp fountain from the former bell tower.
