A Perfect Picture postcard setting .Le Couvent des Cordeliers is a stunning building such Character .Not just a Church with its History ,when you go through the private gates The beautiful Court yard and out door pool is so relaxing .Spent afternoons Rose wind reading ,dip in the pool to cool down and catch a snooze ,so quite as is the Stunning Village of Verteuil-sur-Charente . The décor of the inside and bedrooms are beautiful that adds to the charm. I took my fixed wheel bike and enjoyed the quite winding lanes hardly any cars . Enjoyed lunch at Le Moulin De Verteuil. Peter and Paul made sure our stay was perfect with First class food and service Perfect

Once again our short visit to the Charente especially Verteuil was enhanced by a brief but memorable stay at this truly magnificent establishment. It just gets better and better ..... it must be one of the best kept secret escapes in the Charente. It oozes charm and beauty with understated opulence The owners and staff of this establishment are amazing, the welcome and attention to detail is second to none. We absolutely love it.

Everything about Le Couvent was heavenly: from the warmth of the hospitality, to the beautiful courtyard with its romanesque pool, gorgeous roses and the sound of the Charente river playing just over the garden wall, to the elegance and comfort of the hotel's stylish interior. As for the fabulous breakfast, an hour cannot do it justice but who wants to rush away from this little Eden set behind high gates just a few paces from the pretty village centre? Certainly not us. We had booked for one night and would have loved to stay longer. The hotel even has its own chapel, once the burial place of the Rochefoucauld family. It is freely open to guests and visitors but we had it all to ourselves on a warm late June morning, which was perfect as our stay coincided with a day of personal remembrance. So very special. Thank you.
