Since becoming a conservancy in 1992, Gothic Abbaye De Beauport, erected in the 13th century, has been recognized for its ecological and historical contributions. The conservatory now protects the exterior grounds surrounded by rose gardens, fig trees, apple orchards, salt meadows, reeds, an old harbor, dams, the coastline, and a forest. You are also invited inside the abbey to view the polychrome frescoes, blacksmith art, cultural events, restoration projects, the bird capture and release program, and the eight majestic granite columns.

  • 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.
