Abbaye de Valmagne, Villeveyrac
(3.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • For me, the Abbaye de Valmagne was a stunning old abbey that has seen a lot of trouble in its past. The church itself is immense; much bigger than you might normally find at an abbey. Uniquely, one of...  more »
  • If the Abbey itself is worth a visit, not only for its really superb cloister and its monastic perfect proportions, the experience of the visit itself was a great disappointment. Since the icy reception (a simple plan to get to the exit, given as an explanation for a prohibitive tariff), through the visit of the Abbey rendered very unlikely (a private dinner was planned there in the evening, we fell so in full installation of tables, chairs and other equipment with a lot of hurlees instructions), up to the garden of the simple temporarily fallow (but reading some other comments (, I realize that this "temporarily" lasts for a few years...), ending with a tasting of the wines of the really not convincing Abbey and a gift shop of great banality to price them as prohibitive: the everything contributes to a disastrous impression of "money pump". So I can understand that the restoration and maintenance of such a heritage, private property, require substantial funds. And I'm ready, in this logic, to contribute by my reckoning, be high. But in this case, there must be delivery to the height, not only by the quality of the reception and respect for visitors, which is not the case here.

  • have plunged back into the history of France, it's good to be back on track and connect all these ancestors until our days. The Abbey is superb and deserves that can arise there a moment to take the time. On the other hand, disappointed with the Inn of the same name, average and expensive meals. Is not worth that Creyssels-Meze.

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

  • Dismal home of the boss who disparages her husband in front of clients without embarrassment, haughty, rude, to decide whether the boss Queen and not King customers! Very average food for the price, (better at home) no sauces no effort to present, we eat and we're more welcome in a trucker!

  • 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!

  • Beautiful place. splendid church. little next door "bio" restaurant or even on the outdoor terrace you forbidden smoking... don't serve wine by the glass, because according to the waitress, "they have not time" and instead propose an infusion of mixture of plants whose development must be longer that pour a glass of wine. look for the error. However the coefficient of sales on scented hot water must be more consistent for the Fund. In short the Abbey 💯 /💯 Yes, for lunch I'll be less generous in Star... for the kitchen again very good table. Laughing out loud. my visit date of 2014.peut be changes took place...

  • The place is indeed beautiful... but as mentioned below in the notice, the home that we has been reserved on the terrace by the owner was more than regrettable; verbally unpleasant, haughty. Fortunately the young waitresses were heightened. Meal poor + home cold of the Patron Saint we disheartening to come back. We were still a group of 30... & do not forget that customers are the engine of your 'trade'.
