My hubby & I were stunned to arrive and see the Abbey looking exactly like the photos - no photoshop tweaking necessary. It's a gorgeous home in a spectacular setting. The mirror lake image & lily pads add to the surreal feeling we had entering the place. Our adult son accompanied us & wasn't so much affected by the setting as he was by the only slightly controlled wildness of the flora surrounding the house, church & mausoleum. Huge trees & mini waterfalls added to the tranquility achieved by just walking the grounds. The church was designed to appeal to females & was very carefully & delicately put together. The restaurants on location were better than expected considering the remote location & the gift shop was a mad house of tour bus groupies getting those priceless souvenirs, but that didn't stop one employee from chasing me down just to tell me the ties on my jacket were trailing behind me & she was concerned for my safety. It's a lovely place to spend an afternoon & affords those who wish the opportunity to picnic as well.
