  • We loved walking up through the vineyards to the abbey. Shopping a bit, tasting some wine in the shop, hearing the nun's beautiful singing and enjoying the view. 
  • Enjoyed a walk on a sunny autumn day to this beautiful place. Arrived just around mid day and the cafe or the vine cellar were closed ( open on Sunday's in the afternoon only). Still a worth to visit....  more »
  • After taking us up the steep ascent, we came to the monastery! The STUNNING views from the top of the mountain! Bought wine from the diligent and cheerful nuns. Visited the Abbey Church with confessional for them as so needed!
