This is a lovely place - an old church, gardens, vineyard and organic restaurant. Set in the rolling countryside outside of Pezenas this is a magical place. Driving along you are suddenly confronted by the warm stones of the Abbaye.
Walk through the gates and either take the tour or follow the notes. The Church was seriously damaged in the 16C religious wars but as you enter the church be prepared to see soaring buttresses, thin columns and a cool space. The acoustics were excellent and if you get a chance to go to a concert don't miss it. The Abbey is based on the architecture of Northern France but moderated for southern France. From the Abbey enter the cloisters with dappled light peeping through and spend some time here. Then out through the wine shop. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and don't miss the gardens on the way out.
If you get a chance eat in the restaurant and enjoying the stunning food.
The is a welcoming warm and evocative place - wonderful for the soul and the stomach!
