Abbaye de Valmagne, Villeveyrac

3.9
#5 of 25 in Historic Sites in Herault
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.

  • What beautiful visit in a quiet place, a monument which we really appreciated because of its charm, the colors of the stone, the relaxing atmosphere. We'd be hours to contemplate the Abbey in every detail! There are even small touches (games on paper, coloring) for young children who have not at all bored...

  • Run away from crowded beaches and visit this beautiful Cistercian Abbey. Located in the middle of vineyards it is very well kept. You may be shocked to see wine barrels in the Church but that explains. We did the tour with audio guides is perfect. We took time to stroll in the cloister. It's really very beautiful.

  • Second time, but this time with the guide. Already excited the first time, even better the 2nd. No doubt, there will be others! With the guide we see the site otherwise, I strongly advise you

  • It is a still beautiful place, serious work both in the visit of the Abbey as the restoration. It is an opportunity to have a good time good and peaceful. We eat inside and we were fine. The fresh meals with quality products has delighted us. The tasting at the Abbey allows us to choose the wine with the meal.

  • 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.
