This was one of the highlights of my trip in Burgundy. The guided tour was very insightful, the site is very well kept and everyone is willing to help and provide any additional information. It is definitely a place to return!

Immensiely satisfying and tranquil with a feeling of returning back to nature. The grounds were impeccable and the interiors of the buildings really brought home the ancient splendour of the buildings. Well worth a detour...even a visit.

The Abbey of Fontenay is a former Cistercian abbey located in the commune of Marmagne, near Montbard, in the département of Côte-d'Or in France. The abbaye is located in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Both the exterior and interior are in excellent condition. It was very interesting to learn how the abbaye was so self sufficient. The drive through the surrounding area to reach the abbaye was very enjoyable.

So beautiful, the buildings and the gardens are wonderful. Would not miss this place. We were there n October and there was only about a dozen or so cars in the parking lot, so it was like being there all by ourselves.

We called in here on our way north, and glad we did. This abbey is set in beautiful peaceful countryside . We arrived when it opened at 10am and joined an English speaking tour, which was very informative, and necessary to enjoy the Abbaye to the full.A very well restored and kept venue , privately owned they have done a wonderful job. A must if in the area
