Let me start by saying that the abbey is located in a lovely, picturesque town of Brittany, and walking through its streets alone is worth it. Don't expect to visit an abbey per se - there is an abbey, but it's not what this site...More

The herb garden here is lovely - fairly compact, but well-planted, with a variety of unusual herbs, all labelled with names & uses and growing in a colourful profusion. They have also just set out an area of sloping borders & small lake, which will...More

This abbey is a real find. We went in July and the weather was fine. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The abbey itself is very pretty. A real feeling of the past. Great for the family. A great day out.
