Your admission fee only entitles you to see the three rooms of Chopin’s “Cell No.4”, the rest of the monastery is extra. We were the only visitors, quite atmospheric but really one for the Chopin afficianado. The best part me was the lovely little courtyard garden only accessible through the rooms with a fantastic view over the village.

Valledemossa is a popular town and it was very difficult to find anywhere to park on a very rainy Sunday. We hadn't really done any research so headed to the main church and paid 5 euros to go to this very small museum. If you buy this ticket you are only entitled to go into one area of the monastery so maybe that is not the best option. The two rooms we were allowed in had some photos/pictures/letters on the wall and a piano but no real explanation of what we were seeing. Small patio garden at the back with a nice view.

You have to buy more than just the ticket to see Chopin & Sand's room to appreciate the beautiful setting. Chopin's room is just a very small part of the Carthusian Monastery Valldemossa. We enjoyed a peaceful hour strolling around the whole monastery and museum. The 15 minute Chopin concert was a nice bonus too! i loved viewing Chopin's original manuscripts of the music he was composing. It was full of his scratching outs and revisions. Outside of the monastery there is a small garden area and are several cute outdoor cafes to relax at and have a cool drink and a snack.

Such an inspiring experience to be in the very rooms where Chopin composed his Preludes, Second Ballade, Third Scherzo, etc. You can feel the magic of the inspirational setting. His own Pleyel piano is also on display. The garden is beautiful and the view splendid. A must for anyone who wants to get closer to Chopin and his music!

Interesting to see where the great man lived and worked. Enjoyed reading the letter of Robert Graves giving his take on the relationship between Chopin and Sands. Rooms lacked a feel of having been lived in, very much a museum. The little shaded garden was a delight, with beautiful views.

Really ingesting to see the place when Fred write such lovely music. Good exhibits. But poorly explained to those who can only speak English (ie ourselves) and not well hosted by the staff there - the woman taking our tickets spent all the time in the phone - she just tore our ticket and jabbed her finger to point the way. Also, you need to buy additional tickets to see the other parts of the Monastery, which was not explained to us when we came in.

I was brought up listening to the music of Chopin. We had a piano in our house and my mother could play his simplier pieces reasonably well. Therefore when we were planning our most recent holiday to Majorca and decided to go to Valldemossa one day a visit to the Chopin and George Sand Museum was high on my list of things to do.

We saw from the leaflets that we had acquired in advance that one could gain access to the room (cell) occupied by Chopin by toring the entire Monastery but this was advertised as a guided tour lasting an hour. However it was possible to visit the Chopin room on its own through a separate entrance which meant that our visit could be a good deal shorter. As we were only going to be in Valldemossa for a few hours this seemed the better option which would allow us to see more of the beautiful town.

We duly paid 4 Euros each, got our tickets and were told to go along a corridor to room 4. When we got there there were a few people standing outside looking through a doorway into ewhat seemed to be a small entrance area to a larger room beyond. However there was a rope stretched across the doorway denying access to the entrance area. We saw however that other visitors had accessed the room from an adjoining room to the left of room 4. We therefore tried to do likewise but as we entered that room we were stopped by a steward and asked to show our tickets which we duly did. We were told in no uncertain terms that we should not be in the room that we had enteted and that we were only entitled to enter room 4. The fact that it seemed to be closed to visitors like ourselves did not elicit any explanation or assistance why we could not get in. Therefore we had to leave. 8 Euros wasted!

Therefore heed my warning. WHEN BUYING TICKETS TO SEE ROOM 4 ONLY MAKE SURE THAT IT IS ACTUALLY OPEN OR YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY. FAR BETTER TO GO ON THE COMPLETE TOUR OF THE MONASTERY IF YOU HAVE THE TIME.

You need to be careful buying tickets . The main ticket office at the Monastery in Valdemossa sells tickets for 9.5 euros which is for the monastery building and a Chopin memorabilia collection. If you want to see the rooms that Chopin and Sand lived in at the monastery you have to buy separate tickets from the side of the monstery building for 4 euros .
We particularly wanted to see the rooms but were really disappointed. They are 3 rooms and a small , but very attractive garden with lovely views. Although very impressed with seeing Chopin's piano and some of his original scripts and letters, there was little structure to the exhibition.
There were odd bits of furniture with pictures of Chopin and Sand on the walls by different artists ( but no sense of how it would have looked when they occupied the rooms). It seemed to be neither habitable room or museum and there was little in English to help make sense of what there was.
If you will be thrilled to stand and look at Chopin's actual piano then do go anyway but as an exhibition of his rooms I felt it lacked any focus. It certainly lacked any heating either and was very cold on the day we went.

We didn't go to the Chopin collection in the monastery so can't comment on what was in there but peering through the door on the way by it looked rather similar with a collection of random Chopin objects and letters.

I had read a book about George Sand and Frederic Chopin's love affair in Valldemosa before going on this trip so it was fabulous to see the location in person. It was surreal wandering through the gardens and rooms knowing that they actually lived there together. The views were beautiful with vineyards below and rose gardens. I imagined seeing the goats she had for milk for her children. It was very romantic. The little town was charming as well.

We went to the monastery just out of curiosity and although it's a nice quite serene place to see... Inside is just some rooms where Chopin stayed and few old antiques and statues... Overall not a lot to see inside....
However the town Villamosa is probably the best town to visit whilst in Majorca, very quaint with lots of lovely shops that have so many unusual items... You will be meandering the shops forever 😁 so glad we came here, it really is a lovely place to visit whilst in Majorca
