  • I went in a balloon from the site and it was a magical moment. The Abbey is very well maintained, the edge also, if many foreigners take the detour, it is not for nothing.

  • Monastery itself is founded in 1146, historical stuff will be shut down by revolutionary France 1796, nowadays only the ruins remain. Tourist facilities are well maintained, quite many of the audience. I think you should go, but there is a parking lot across the street was filled with on-street parking in the area, so as much as possible in the morning. And the Church still retains, evokes the splendour of yesteryear. Sunday afternoon despite the Café is closed. It may be open only during daylight saving time,. In the souvenir shop, and good products. (But I'm selling wine from France but regretfully! ) Going on a nice day and enjoy the beauty of ruins.

  • The ruins of the Abbey of Villers La Ville is a place full of history which can not enough us and that we go back to visit almost every years. When you're on this site it is taken by serenity, calm, appeasement. Is sollenelle and magic. This Abbey which can be visited through the seasons is beautiful has each seasons and for lovers of photos is a nice place photograph. More we can to restore with the restaurant and the brewery right next door and for souvenirs the completely restored shop is worth to spend because it sells things artisanal and the region. In this Abbey he done many things throughout the year so there's always things ' interesting to do or see and even without anything just walking is a real pleasure. In short the ruins of the Abbey of Villers city is a place that I recommend highly.

  • A very* Special *place to visit, A monumental ruine with a beautifull atmosphere .You can juse your imagination how it was before and maybe how yhe monks lived here Marionne Ernst
  • I had high expectations but was still blown away by this historic beauty! A very interesting and absolutely magnificent place that I heartily recommend. We visited on a weekday and I advise you to do the same, you will avoid so many crowds.
  • Ruins of XIII century abbey, abandoned some 200 years ago. Entrance through nearby building. Overpriced (8€ entry fee), but free parking for visitors. Not pram-friendly, but a couple of lifts do exist. Beautiful sights and interesting gardens with medicinal plants. We saw a couple shooting wedding pics.
  • This place is stellar! There is an entrance cost, which has to be paid. To reach the site, you will have to walk a littlebit. Beware, there are places where wheelchair might not be accessible. The ruins of the monastery are beautiful for photography. Try the beer at cafe!
  • Sad that the bar next to opens just for the evening :( other bar opens at 11am but it is a bit further
