Highly recommend as a detour if you're nearby. It was truly stunning walking around and then just sitting at these ruins. The silence was addictive; there were people writing and painting on the site and I understand why. I could have stayed there all day.

We visited the abbey with our two small children aged six and nine. The staff were very helpful and the entrance fee is incredibly reasonable. The children were both free and I think we paid €6.5 for each adults. My little boy had a wonderful time as for five euros you can hire an iPad that gives you a 3-D... More

"La France en Vacances" temporary photography exhibition absolutely made my stay. It included Henri Cartier-Bresson plus a load of other people who I hadn't previously heard of. The abbey itself is also very photogenic and a beautiful spot.

This abbey is so worth visiting. So peaceful! I loved finding the remaining painted details and the carved details of odd little birds. The garden is a bonus. Must have been breathtaking in its day - still very beautiful and so worth a trip from Rouen. Nice gift shop too, btw.

Just a place to relax, not much to see as as historical remains ... only if you can understand that not many roman style building one can see these days
