  • We are attracted to these places of spirituality are the Cistercian abbeys. Dark, impressive places you kept and you come out of your daily life.

  • Ideal for a spiritual retreat, the Abbey also offers a guided tour of the monastic life.

  • A haven of peace and lavender scent... a watch again and again... we are conquered by the landscape and the quiet meditative place
