Sleep in a French Church

No one is suggesting you need to convert to enjoy these properties. France has many places that were once churches, which have now been converted to places where you can stay the night.

This former convent, founded in 1613, reopened as a hotel and spa in 2008., keeping the original architecture and facade, as well as the terraced botanical gardens.

Once the home of 3,000 nuns and monks, this abbey founded in 1101, centuries later, became a Napoleonic prison. Now, the hotel’s restaurant has one Michelin star.


Fourvière Hôtel, Lyon

Built more recently, in 1854, this former convent of Visitation, a monastery, was renovated and transformed in 2015.

Now a four-star hotel on the site of a former 1854 Jesuit chapel, not all the rooms feature the 19th-century chapel’s architecture, but it's worth checking if there is one available.
