  • Was a few years ago not 2016 but will not have changed much. Walked out from the cafe area in Paimpol then left to the beach and ambled along the coast to the Abbaye taking about an hour to get there....  more »
  • A really nice site. The Abbey in it even has been very well restored. Summer flowers and plants bring an air of gaiety to the old stones. The setting is sumptuous. Take the time to do all the way around. Push up to the peninsula of Cruckin and admire the landscape.

  • On the advice of the office of tourism we did the tour of the Abbey. We visited the Abbey decorated of all forms and in all materials Christmas tree, lit candles. A great discovery. Animation for children was to be the high point of this after noon, alas, he has nothing been. Brigadier general who acted as host for the constructions of kapla ruined everything. Had the buildings of children or adults to correspond to desires, otherwise, she recovered the materials of construction to give to others who "obeyed". Like many visitors we curtailed our visit, disgusted by his behavior.

  • Beautiful location, make sure you take a camera. Ask at the desk for wheelchair access as the door is not accessible, but they will let you in through a different door that is accessible!
  • Wonderful place, in some ways very similar to San Galgano. The Interior is "decorated" with a lot of hedges of hydrangeas with a thousand colours. The Abbey is close to the sea and from the inside you can see the Islands are off the coast.

  • Somewhere fascinating and very well arranged so that the visitor is to taste. Beautiful enclave from whose windows you can see the armorican coast. A delight.

  • It's always a nice and walk out of time for the family. ATTENTION however to the temporary exhibition of August 2016, which is not recommended for children. The torments of the artist are incompatible with the sensitivity of children. We also wonder what motivates this choice.

  • Mix of old stones, Chiseled, round bumps and natural landscapes. A place of meditation! A reconversion perfect this ancient Abbey in historical monument since it should already have been during its construction. Admission € 22 for 2 adults + 2 efts, guided tour of quality with Elise.
