This is one of the most peaceful places I have ever had the privilege of visiting. So do all the bees and the butterflies on the Cote d'Azure. I have never seen a garden in such perfect ecological balance. Every leaf and stalk sways gently...More

We visited the monastery earlier today. The drive to the monastery is not for the faint hearted but very exciting with sheer drops - as the monastery comes into view on the drive up it is incredible to see how it nestles into the side...More

This was our fourth visit to this wonderful place. Yes it is a tricky drive, but it is well worth the effort, particularly on a sunny clear day. The effort and commitment of those who have rebuilt the once ruin is quite staggering. Closed Tuesdays

An then there's the monastery itself, totally rebuilt from the ruin we first saw some 30 years ago. We can recommend the guided tour and, for those who don't speak French, there's an informative 8-page pamphlet in English, also pamphlets are available in German, Dutch...More
