Not my first visit (that was in 1970) but probably my last. This is now a hugely successful commercial enterprise -- but the magic is gone. Our French language tour was spoiled by the constant noise from other participants, which the guide did nothing to...More

The setting for the abbey makes it one of the most photographed abbeys in France, especially during lavender season. The monks make products which they sell in the shop located in the abbey. Love the lavender body lotion!

Nice abbey in a valley. You should go there in June when the flowers will be pink. A must see in the provence!

So we visited after the lavender was harvested...not the peak time to come to the Abbey in October. None the less the grounds are nice and the gift shop is fantastic. They carry many different lavender products.

A beautiful place of full of atmosphere and tranquility. Better than the more publicised Musee de lavande. Here you get to experience the true lives led by the monks, and how they farm the surrounding expanse of lavender fields.

The last time for the guided tour is 4:15 for guided tour, and 10:15 for the unguided tour. We enjoyed the guided tour - excellent and informative. Since this is an active monastery, there will be times when tours are not available - need to...More

Hi, I did visit the abbey in winter time. As we were staying in a hotel in Gordes it was only a 10++ minute drive. Therefore we just went there. It has a shop area were you can go without booking, of course :-) Within that... More
