“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

This place deserves a visit. A beautiful and peaceful abbey near Aix-en-Provence, with a nice green area in front of it. It's a short and pleasent visit.

“So tranquil”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Visited here and enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the place. The abbaye is hardly adorned but the quality of light and the beauty of the place makes it well worth seeing. You are free to wander at your leisure and just enjoy being there.

“Amazing, peaceful place”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This wonderful old abbey is just the definition of peace and tranquility. We visited on a beautiful day, there was hardly anyone there, and we had an amazing time. The abbey is empty, and almost devoid of decoration, but that only adds to its sense of awe-inspiring peace.

“Beautiful Abbaye”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Enjoyed a peaceful few hours wandering this Abbaye amidst the summer sun - it has a very peaceful feeling and even though other visitors were there the atmosphere was generally quiet - one could spend the afternoon just sitting with a book in such a contemplative site!
