Abbaye de Valmagne, Villeveyrac

(240+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Constructed on the site of a smaller Romanesque chapel, Abbaye de Valmagne represents a former monastery built in the 13th century. The Gothic abbey church, a designated historical monument, features a nave, transept, and nine chapels radiating from the semi-circular ambulatory. Enter the cloister of the abbey, where you can walk through a garden courtyard with large stone arches and see the octagonal structure containing a spring-fed lavabo that the monks used to wash their hands before meals. An on-site vineyard was originally created by 12th-century Cistercian monks that produced primarily white wines.  See Abbaye de Valmagne and all Villeveyrac has to offer by arranging your trip with our Villeveyrac itinerary builder.

  • meal in line with our expectations, menu at 30 euros too expensive for closed delivery hostel, when the Sun is strong think Cap! or eat inside, the wine of the Abbey should be proposed in a free tasting in entry. the jugs of water are not fresh damage

  • Disappointing visit! 7 euros to see an Abbey trying to receive a social function is average! In addition, the fact that the building has become private took him charm historical, cultural and humble... the Abbey in it even is beautiful but are charm is no longer present. The reception was cold enough! Finally, restaurant, shops, the great vintages (expensive) and the fact that one is not even allowed to visit the garden makes the whole disappointing.

  • Magical place... in every way this place is enchanting. Thanks to the home staff and the guide for their kindness.

  • Delicious moments, in the full sense of the word: after the austere nobility of the Cistercian Abbey, we appreciated the simple, natural and married flavors with refinement of all the dishes served in his farm. Very attractive wines. Host elegant, unusual and humorous, will appreciate those who love unravel, for an evening out of the time, their reflexes of formatted tourists.

  • Beautiful: sober and calm. It is quite significant that a benedictine Abbey of such importance is today a vineyard and restaurant! Who is behind all this? I have my idea :) Visit it and you will participate in its conservation... then, go!
