Most beautiful church building. Denomination free. True peace and understanding. Would have like to have seen more information available but I settle for the serenity.

We had a long drive from Bedoin, Mont Ventoux, where we are staying , to the abbey of Frigolet. We thought we could visit the abbey every day. Information on the internet was not very clear to us, since it said for individuals visit every day from 16 h, except for the days mentioned on a list, but maybe they... More

There is very little in this town to recommend. We likes Beaucaire better but still, we would not recommend this part of lovely provence to anyone.
