Industrial, agricultural, or religious buildings turned into vacation spots

In France, there’s no shortage of beautiful stones! These historical buildings, with their walls laden with stories, have captured the attention of new owners who often undertake years of work for unique renovations. These heritage gems, transformed into hotel-houses, don’t always reveal their past at first glance. And that’s where it gets interesting.

Whether it’s Rue du Four, once a silkworm farm, the Domaine de Canaille, a former pigsty turned summer residence and hotel that hosted Virginia Woolf and Winston Churchill, the Couvent des Ormes, where travelers have long replaced the religious, or the Pressoir du Château de la Bourlie, an ancient 14th-century mill, each house speaks volumes about its region’s past! In these surprising properties, guests spend their holidays exploring every nook and cranny of these centuries-old buildings, all while enjoying modern comforts and numerous services.
