The opportunity of staying in a Middle Age monastery doesn't come along very often, especially in one that has been gorgeously transformed into a luxurious hotel. "What we wanted for Fontevraud was not the classic hotel and restaurant experience, but something unique; a journey between tradition and modernity that reinterprets the story of Saint-Lazare for the future, marrying emotion, sensual pleasure and poetry," explained designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku of Agence Jouin Manku who steer headed the stunning renovation. With a simple palette of wood, metal and fabrics the creative duo created a serene atmosphere that complements and brings forth the history of the building. Simply put, this hotel is a heavenly place to kick back and relax.
