The position of the abbey, on top of a hill, surrounded by trees, makes for a beautiful and peaceful place. The walk from the parking lot is amid the trees (and somewhat steep on the return), with an occasional peek of beautiful views. Access to interiors is limited to the English Church and the wine cellar and is further limited to only a few hours each day. Make sure you know the hours before you drive there.
There is a small shop selling products made by the Abbey's residents, and there are a few sleeping rooms available to people seeking a stay for quiet contemplation.
Drive a short distance to Chiusure for excellent views back toward the Abbey.
