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.

  • Abbey of and 14 February 2017 a pastoral place within a Cistercian Abbey. We enjoyed: the conviviality of a warm welcome in an architectural setting authentic. . the room under a beautiful frame. the pretty table: colored tablecloth, glasses, covered twisted quality; Candle bouquet of mimosa. . the gourmet kitchen, with good local but especially creative products with a very good marriage of flavors: a) cream of pumpkin roasted orange with petals of ham farm, chestnut and hazelnut grilled b) pavement of free-range veal with Oyster Mushrooms and black rice, sauce green confit of leeks c) cream and jelly of citrus, dried apricots and zests of Orange confit with small granite of orange. The service: attentive staff. Reasonable price. and even customers, many come for Valentine, with well behaved children... not screaming, crying, conversations out loud, ringtones mobile phones. It was a great evening

  • A zen moment enamelled history... the Cathars, the revolution, the wine, the monastic life there... The cloister is superb... and the lightnings in the place of worship are just surprising... Do not expect a very long visit... but it worth it! Tip: off-season there is no guide, therefore, claim a hearing aid at the counter (don't proposed you not automatically)

  • The visit itself was a great disappointment compared to the presentation of the website. Since the home a simple plan to get to the exit, given as an explanation. No guide is not a season but still same price. By the lightning in the Church nothing to see history. Not maintained medieval garden, supposedly for lack of water weeds have the good life. This place does not deserve to be part of 'sites of exception of Languedoc'

  • 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'.
