The Abbey was an unexpected treat on the way to Rouen. Beautiful 12th century Benedictine Abbey gives you a good idea of monastic life in Normandy. The Abbey church built in the Norman Roman style is remarkably preserved; the church interior is graciously simple, elegant...More

If for some reason you REALLY want to make a point in seeing this old church and abbey, by all means do so! But if you're considering it as a 'possible' stop on a longer trip, I'd advise skipping it and spending time at Jumieges...More

You have to pay to enter the abbey itself but the parish church is free. Completely plain limestone interior is not unpleasant but I couldn’t discover whether it had always been like this or earlier decoration had been destroyed in French Revolution. Gardens are very...More

Gardens attached to the rather plain abbey are a delight. Terraces with either fruit and vegetables, or flowers, or grass with shady trees. Climb to the top for a grand view of the Seine and surroundings, whilst standing at the stone parapet or sitting under...More

Nice visit to an Abbey with a long and interesting history. Audio guides are free with admission fee, worth a visit if you are staying close by as we were.

Lovely place to spend an hour or two. The Abbey itself was beautiful but we spent more time in the wonderful Gardens. Full of flowers as well as vegetables and an orchard. You can climb up to the top of the garden and see a...More

Both the Abbaye and the vast wonderful garden are worth the 6 euros each that you are charged to go in! We much enjoyed our visit and spent some time - most of a morning wandering around the well set of gardens on a steep...More

Nice Abby in a quiet town, which was well worth a visit. Great little restaurant outside the Abby where we had lunch

This is well worth the trip - we've "done it" twice. Beautiful Abbaye and a really superb garden much of it given over to fruit and vegetables, yet still very lovely. The gardens are large, several acres, and there never seems to be more than...More

We caught the bus out from Rouen. No 30 bus leaves from the espace metro bus at the southern end of Rue Jeanne d'Arc and cost €1.60 each way. It's 5-10mins walk from the Saint Martin de Boucherville bus stop into the village. Buses go...More

Our experience was spoiled by the fact that I could not get my electric scooter in either the shop/reception area or the Abbey Church, Very disabled unfriendly, come on get up to date.

This is large and at first glance somewhat cold yet on closer inspection there are gorgeous capitals and attractive details that take this above a basic church visit to something more rewarding. In addition there is a really interesting garden that has been restored extending...More
