  • Nice view of lavender but there are other better places to see well maintained beautiful lavender field. But I liked the building view better; beautiful.
  • Even though the lavender wasn't bloomed the pleace was still very beautiful! A must see in Provance!
  • Beautiful even when the lavender is not flowering. Worth a visit for the bookshop.
  • Really beautiful in summer with the lavander flowers, otherwise the scenery could be not worth the trip.
  • You can visit the Abbey only with an excursion which is only in french. C'est la vie
