  • You'll be transported to another era... Extraordinary, to see it... More in addition to the monastic cells carved into the rock, a fabulous view awaits you outside on most courses... Too bad for the maintenance of the surroundings that leave a little to be desired...

  • It climbs but it's still a short easy walk to do in all seasons. We visit the ruins of the Abbey, you can meet wild goats, and we have a beautiful view of beaucaire

  • These are ruins of Abbey which are really worth a visit. -the site is superb, hooked to its rock overlooking the Rhône river at the far - remains are well preserved, and are unlike any other - the guide is passionate and exciting. It makes us discover the rich history of this site through anecdotes and great moments, interspersed with comments full of malice. He leads the centuries and reveals fascinating historical items beside which we would have gone without us noticing, if we had visited the site only. It was cold but we feasted.

  • An interesting site ... ok with kid's but be aware it's not the safest place on the planet. From the parking lot it's a good walk up to get to the site. And at the site itself there are stairs, ladders, steps, ... you get a good idea when you check my pictures. I had no trouble with my 4 and 8 year old just keep an eye on them.
  • Not very famous but fabulous to Lake one of the most beautiful places I've found in southern France

  • Very friendly visit. Difficult to access for people with reduced mobility. Superb view. Even for those who live not far from Beaucaire, it's free on proof of address.
