On the banks of the river Charente, between Poitiers and Angoulême, in the heart of the historical village of Verteuil dominated by its famous castle whose foundations date from 1080 and where many French Kings stayed, the ancient Couvent was founded in 1471 by Jean de la Rochefoucauld, Lord of Verteuil.

Here you will find Le Couvent des Cordeliers, a unique and elegant Chambres D'Hôtes de Prestige.

Bordered by the river Charente and set in beautiful walled grounds, the courtyard garden and terrace is arranged around the roman-style pool and fountain.

Within the grounds of Le Couvent des Cordeliers is the Church of St François, a wonderfully intimate wedding-venue.

Le Couvent des Cordeliers is the perfect location for holidays, private functions, golf weekends and corporate hospitality.

The Old Vestry and Monk's Refectory are now replaced with the graceful Reception and Dining-room with its original fireplace and authentic wall drawings where dinner is served each evening.

Le Couvent des Cordeliers is an opportunity to relax and do nothing apart from enjoy the ambience, weather and delights of South-West of France.
