  • We stumbled upon the day's guided tour. The guide is very interesting and knows her subject at her fingertips. No unanswered questions. The Simonov collection is beautiful and it is very surprising to come across Monat, Dali etc. outside of the great museums in Paris!

  • Nice Abbey with art exposition
  • Great art, lovely gardens, interesting buildings
  • Wonderful place.
  • Nice abby, worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood. Hardly any information in another language then French.
  • The place is conducive to relaxation, a beautiful place full of charm. The parking is free and shady, and the entrance is €4 per adult. Inside, beautiful exhibition of paintings, and large rooms well restored. In the courtyard, a large lawn, with at the bottom a garden of parish priest. The retreat makes us admire a beautiful façade. Finally, outside, you can see some stone sarcophagi, and huge benches in black schist.
