Abbaye de Valmagne, Villeveyrac

3.9
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 .

  • 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.
  • Great!
