Private bookings

Turn your special events into truly exceptional moments

The Hôtel-Dieu in Carpentras is located at the heart of the Vaucluse region and is easily accessible by train or even car, thanks to its completely free parking. This makes it an ideal spot to organise an event people are not likely to forget. 

The Inguimbertine at the Hôtel-Dieu offers the most exceptional of spaces that can host study days, meetings, seminars, conferences, cocktail evenings and business events inside this majestic monument. It is the perfect backdrop for unique events, from the world of business to cultural experiences for an adult or younger audience. 

The whole Inguimbertine team will be glad to help organise your event just how you want it, ensuring that your guests are impressed.

Rent out the library museum

Make your event something special.

With us, you have the opportunity to arrange for private access to our collections, to give your event that extra wow factor. 

You can choose from an unaccompanied or guided visit to our collections, with audio guides and video guides and theme-based visits.

This can only be booked outside of the normal opening hours. Visits during opening hours are possible, but will be organised differently. No events other than the visit itself may be held in the rooms where the collections are displayed.
