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.

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.
