“Did not understand...”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

That's an acting convent. So what? Probably one should learn the history of it in advance in order to find it interesting.

“Daffodil Central at Easter.”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Easter coincided with daffodil season this year, and though just passing their best, the quadrangle was still a beautiful sea of yellows swaying amidst the trees in such a tranquil place. When people respect the signs (the nuns request people be silent here), it's so calming hearing just the hoof-beats of trotting horses outside, and the bells peeling in the distant Belfort.

“Quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

This is a lovely peaceful place and we were lucky to see all the daffodils in bloom. Its worth a look round and can get you away from all the tourists. There's a little museum which is also worth a look.

“Pretty”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Daffodils, spring sunshine, a bell calling the sisters to Mass, a white painted convent. Like another world!

“Calm and tranquil”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

A nice place to escape from the noise and experience the calm and tranquility of the nunnery. The daffodils were in full bloom when we visited and added to an already picturesque scene.
