It took us a while to find the place - it is off the beaten path, but absolutely worth the trip. you need to park the car about a km away from the Monastery, but it is worth the walk! The drive is a bit too exciting on the way up as it is a tiny road, but all is... More

Probably one of the biggest monasteries we've ever visited. The drive there is lovely but quite adventurous and not once did we see the monastery. We parked our car in the car park and from there it is about 750m walk and suddenly the monastery dooms up out of the forrest. The staff was really nice and helpful. They offer... More

Great to look around and well restored. Unfortunately it was foggy so we could not see the panorama to St Tropez.

Wonderful place, so peaceful, well renovating, lost on the hills surrounding by a lovely forest and with amazing views. The drive to get there is lovely (drive slowly and careful though!!!). A true moment of authenticity and peace, away from the tumult of the season (if being there in July and August). Extremely refreshing and truly inspiring!!! Not to be... More

Le Charteuese is hidden in the mountain, between the woods. it is a place to recharge the spirit to remain in silence. The visit inside the Monastery is very interesting as the video explaining the daily life of the nuns, still living in the Chartereuse. You can buy their production of wood holy sculptures, honey, herbs. The ticket is 6... More

La Chartreuse de Verne is hidden away in the Massif des Maures but relatively easy to access from Collobrieres (11 kms) alomg a narrow but well-paved forestry road. The Chartreuse was founded in the 12th century but fell into ruin. There is an interesting photographic exhibition showing the state of disrepair from which has emerged a faithful recent reconstruction. The... More

What a place ! The drive is beautiful and this Chartreuse is such a beauty. The visit takes 30 minutes and it is superb. The renovation has been long but the result is very nice. This is a very nice place to visit, the views are stunning, we really enjoyed it.

A peace of paradise one hour from Saint-Tropez. The buildings are beautiful and have been very well renovated. The monks are still producing and selling what they prepare. The place is very restful and we had a fantastic time.
