Abbaye de Valmagne, Villeveyrac

3.8
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.  To visit Abbaye de Valmagne and other attractions in Villeveyrac, use our Villeveyrac tour itinerary planner .

  • No doubt this former Cistercian Abbey worth a look. We very much appreciate the quality of its restoration with the wrath that is installed in the nave and the choir of the Church as well as a magnificent cloister from the 12th century

  • Very nice and traditional place. Very silent, extremely relaxing, very nice people/staff. Excellent wine, we will come back. We really enjoyed very much the few hours we spent in Valmagne.
  • Perfect place to visit if you're on the road! The abbey is very interesting from all points of view, vine is sold in the shop and there is a nice restaurant nearby.
  • Beautiful Abbey, picturesque, lovely wine. A pity the restaurant was closed, but a lovely relaxing visit.
  • Beatiful place, nice wines to taste, worth the visit.
  • Valmagne Abbey worth widely 5 stars, she is beautiful and very well maintained. However, the home is cold. We arrived in the shop to pick up the tickets, we were greeted by a person very little smiling, and who quickly made shipped the explanation on the course of the visit. At the end of the visit, this same person even did not offer us the tasting of the wines of the Abbey on the grounds that she was alone in the home. Too bad, we love good wine, we would have been very happy with this tasting. We wanted to eat on the spot, but this home made us flee.
