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.

  • A place to discover absolutely. More than an Abbey, is also a winery... with the surprise of the casks in the Church... Completely unexpected!

  • Friendly, a little less 8euros entry with an audioguide. Visit fast enough (about 1 h) but very interesting. Monument impressive by its size and its vaults, as well as the barrels it contains! Beautiful cloister and refectory. With a person who seems to be experienced significant wine tasting. Good surprise! It is also possible to visit the garden (not to me)

  • The Abbey is beautiful, the beautiful cloister. We took advantage of our visit for lunch at the Inn, tasty meals and wines of the area in a very well restored setting. We walked in the paths nearby, between vineyards and olive groves. The place is serene and makes you want to come back.

  • 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'.
