Smaller than Le Thoronet, Senanque and Silvercane abbeys this abbey in La Celle is authentically renovated in super condition and comes with a very informative leaflet explaining it's Roman origin.

Very creative, fresh food put together with care and discipline. I especially enjoyed the savory variety of garden grown vegetables. Meats are always tender, sauces are delicate, and fish is always prepared with perfect herbs and never dry. Desserts are to die for- always with...More
