Stunning church and beautiful gardens
Jul 2019
If you love churches or gardens you should visit this. It’s not crowded with tourists but the church is simply beautiful with some fabulous ancient stone carving. The gardens adjoining are partly free and then there is a part you need to pay to go into . There is also an audio guide to the church available in the shop which is in the free part of the gardens. There are also toilet facilities in the gardens

Peace, tranquility and perspective on offer free of charge
Feb 2019 • Couples
The abbey church offers peace, tranquility and perspective free of charge. A visit is a must. They always welcome enquiries from anyone considering becoming a priest.

You have to pay to enter the abbey itself but the parish church is free. Completely plain limestone interior is not unpleasant but I couldn’t discover whether it had always been like this or earlier decoration had been destroyed in French Revolution. Gardens are very well tended and there are clean toilets.

Gardens with view
Aug 2017 • Couples
Gardens attached to the rather plain abbey are a delight. Terraces with either fruit and vegetables, or flowers, or grass with shady trees. Climb to the top for a grand view of the Seine and surroundings, whilst standing at the stone parapet or sitting under the shady square planted with hornbeams. Also roses, cloisters, exhibition space and maze!

1000 year old Abbey
Oct 2017 • Couples
Nice visit to an Abbey with a long and interesting history. Audio guides are free with admission fee, worth a visit if you are staying close by as we were.

Beautiful Abbey and garden
Sep 2017 • Couples
Lovely place to spend an hour or two. The Abbey itself was beautiful but we spent more time in the wonderful Gardens. Full of flowers as well as vegetables and an orchard. You can climb up to the top of the garden and see a lovely view of the town.

We had biked on our electric bikes to the Abbaye from La Bouille- a good ride!
Sep 2017 • Couples
Both the Abbaye and the vast wonderful garden are worth the 6 euros each that you are charged to go in!
We much enjoyed our visit and spent some time - most of a morning wandering around the well set of gardens on a steep slope so that you get a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside which is lovely!

The garden are divide up into separate areas so there is loads of interest and you can hire a device that tells you all about the history of the place and the ups and downs that it has had over the centuries.

There are something like 17 people working on this garden and it shows! And more repairs are being completed as well!

Go visit and you will have a lovely time!

Nice Abby in a quiet town, worth a visit
Jul 2017 • Couples
Nice Abby in a quiet town, which was well worth a visit. Great little restaurant outside the Abby where we had lunch

Really beautiful spot.
Jul 2017 • Couples
This is well worth the trip - we've "done it" twice. Beautiful Abbaye and a really superb garden much of it given over to fruit and vegetables, yet still very lovely. The gardens are large, several acres, and there never seems to be more than a dozen people in the whole place.

Nice bus trip from Rouen
Jul 2017 • Couples
We caught the bus out from Rouen. No 30 bus leaves from the espace metro bus at the southern end of Rue Jeanne d'Arc and cost €1.60 each way. It's 5-10mins walk from the Saint Martin de Boucherville bus stop into the village. Buses go every half to one hour in the summer. It would be handy if the Abby web site included this information. If you like kitchen gardens this place is for you - the gardens are full of all sorts of herbs, fruits and veggies. The church next door is a beautiful light-filled place which is quite unusual. Just past the Abby entrance there is a Boulangerie that sells filled baguettes if you fancy having a picnic. You can also walk down to the Seine from the village. The walk is along a pleasant lane with views out to the meadows with birds flitting about in the hedgerows but the river is dull. Wide open with concrete embankments on either side.
