The painted interior of the Abbey is absolutely stunning! The abbey and grounds are well worth the ten minute drive from Tarascon. Take the time to walk the grounds in this magical setting.

If one were to take holy orders, then this is one of the places one would want to live. The setting is amazing, the Abbaye is utterly stunning and the whole thing permeates peace. A detour you MUST make.

Dramatic setting for this abbey (and its many outbuildings). The nicest part is the old Roman chapel, and the surroundings with great hiking trails throughout la Montagnette. Certainly worth a visit !

Tarascon is a wonderful area and this abbey is a fascinating part of the experience. The town as a whole is typically French, small and full of character. We went to a country wedding in one of the chateaus so much to take in, in...More

It is a beautiful monastery in a lovely setting with lots of lovely walks in the area around it. It should be a must visit place.

We've stopped here a number of times. The small compound is quite beautiful but most appealing are the grounds. Follow the paths to wonderful photo opportunities and vistas.
