  • Probably beautiful place, but they did not get because we have a dog of 5 kg we carry quietly in her arms like a small child. My husband and I have just were okay as happens most times for museums or churches Museum, where then maybe run in circles screaming children: you should think about it. ...

  • It is simply to visit, be accompanied by a guide is a real plus, then you can appreciate the small details, especially in the Church.

  • The Abbey is hidden in a haven of greenery, very nice to visit with young children. The prospectus distributed at the entrance is very complete. Recommend

  • With a fair price of €7.50 (free for Europeans under 26), you get access to the whole abbaye and you can fallow a guide with no additional fee. Our guide was an encyclopedia that knew the entire story of the abbey with passion. Entering the church, she will explain the incredible acoustic and will demonstrate it with a religious song that she will sing with talent. It is essential to follow a guide to understand everything about this place. It is wonderful, well preserved and managed with passion and respect.
  • Very beautiful abbey with quiet surroundings try to avoid the rush by delaying your visit to late afternoon .
  • Not informative or interesting. The interior is plain, unfurnished and boring. The outside gardens were mostly dead and uncared for. It's a waste of time and money.
  • Wouldn't stay all day but certainly worth a look. Kids find it possibly a little boring though!
