We chose the L'Abbaye for a night out with dear friends. Arriving at the L'Abbaye you are taken in by its grandeur, the grounds, and the elegant dining room, However, once you begin the process of ordering and starting dinner, this impression fades somewhat. We found the service to be cool, almost arrogant. No English is spoken by staff when... More

Abbey's, convents and monasteries are not this reviewers cup of tea. They are often stark and somber, poorly kept and (at times) unhospitably managed as if the original original tenants where looming like ghosts in modern day shadows. Kids and historians might relish this kind of hide away with it's impressive grounds, lake and gardens. Not I, an opening apology... More

There is no doubt that the buildings and grounds of this property are breathtakingly beautiful and part of a unique experience. So if you're looking for something different and don't mind the quirky traits that comes with "old world charm" (creaky floors, doors, wardrobes) then you will most likely enjoy a stay here. Although we didn't eat any meals here... More

This is like something from a filmset. The building and it's setting are absolutely beautiful. As this was an overnight stop on our way south we didn't opt for an expensive room. The room that we had was slightly dated but to be honest that was immaterial. The view out over the lake and the massive grounds was sublime. The... More

The setting deserves so much more than this stiff and unfriendly staff. We visited the abbey with our teenage children and decided to enjoy the views by sitting on the terrace and ordering from the "Salon de thé". Firstly I thought we were almost disturbing the staff; when we finally got to see the drinks and snack menu with its... More

We always try to stay at one stunning or unique place on each trip and this one filled the bill! The grounds are amazing. Wandering around at dusk in the ruins of the church is other-worldly. I did not see the cheaper rooms but we reserved a Chateau room and it was wonderful, well-appointed with a comfortable bed and antique... More

This was our second stay at the Abbaye and it was as wonderful the second time as it was the first time. We were fortunate enough to have been upgraded to a Chateau room which was very large and had a wonderful view over the grounds. I would recommend splurging on one of the higher end rooms because they are... More
