A dream address, vibrant with history
The 8 rooms and 3 suites of the Monastery of Saint-Mont Hotel and Spa express the quintessence of chic and authenticity. This building built in the 11th century on a Roman oppidum was completely renovated under the direction of Stephane Bastouil (Uni architect in Tarbes). In particular, he directed the “Le Jules Verne” Eiffel Tower Paris Restaurant and the “Benoît” Alain Ducasse New York Restaurant at 53th Street. The renovation has totally respected the complexity and atmosphere of the Monastery, a building listed in the Buildings of France, by the use of unique antiques. These rooms, which take place in the suites, served as a basis for the first drawings of the project.
We will also find period floors, a monumental oak staircase, the old kitchen with its fireplace remained intact, a library for moments of relaxation and a Cluniac cellar unique in the region, …
The volumes are generous and the atmosphere is warm, the spacious rooms are all bathed in natural light with mostly a view of the vineyard of the Monastery and the Pyrenees.

More than a hotel … The rooms and suites of the Monastery of Saint-Mont Hotel and Spa are all different and will seduce you with their original charms and their generous space of 50 to 95 m².

The Village of Saint-Mont “A Paradise well hidden”
Perched on a Roman oppidum the charming village of Saint-Mont with its steep streets and pretty half-timbered houses offers you one-on-one with nature, to savor all senses awakening.
Halfway between Bordeaux and Toulouse, its geographical position (at the crossroads of the departments of Gers, Hautes-Pyrénées, Pyrénées Atlantiques and Landes) makes it a privileged place as a starting point for the main tourist destinations of the South-West (Region New Aquitaine and Midi-Pyrenees region). The beaches of the Atlantic Ocean (Capbreton, Hossegor, Vieux-Boucau) are an hour and thirty minutes drive, the Pyrenees are an hour (Station La Mongie), Pau is 55 kilometers and finally the main festivals of the Gers are close, too: Festival Bandas in Condom (one hour), Country Festival in Mirande (45 minutes), Latin Tempo Vic-Fezensac (30 minutes) and jazz In Marciac (30 minutes).
In 1050, a Gascon lord, Bernard de Tumapaler founded a monastery on the remains of the former oppidum, the Monastery of Saint John the Baptist, attached to the order of Cluny. The monks stayed there until the French Revolution (1791) and the monastery was sold as national property. Currently, only remains from the period of the eleventh century, the Church of St. John the Baptist. The current Monastery buildings have been remodeled (eighteenth).
Its privileged location (intersection of departmental D 946 and D 262) makes it a residential village where life is good. The Pau or Tarbes airports, the Pau, Tarbes and Mont-de-Marsan stations, the A 65 motorway and the D 935 departmental road make the village very quickly accessible by air, train or road.
It includes the culture of the vine since the occupation of the Romans. In recent years the 7 hectares of vines composed mainly of Tannat planted on a very limestone soil are pampered by the vine-growers of Plaimont and are used for the development of one of the most emblematic cuvées of the appellation Saint Mont.
