Walked from the free car park over a twelfth century bridge. It's picture perfect, it has a small cloister with roman tops on the columns. There is an upper floor with a chapel dating from the 13th century. The monks part was private and I...More

A lovely little medieval village (though wouldn't call it pretty). The abbaye is worth the visit. Interesting history and well preserved buildings

The abbey looks great from outside, but the inside contains mainly empty rooms. The video on its history was in French with Spanish subtitles-no good if you only speak English. The various rooms do have info in English. 20 minutes is enough to see everything....More

We were disappointed with the Abbaye de Largesse. On the plus side we visited in the afternoon when there were few tourists and it was cool. On the down side, we visited during the week when only part of the abbey was open. The gardens...More
