Our opinion

The mark of the members of a religious order is still to be clearly seen on the fertile land of this old abbey, the foundations of which date back to the 12th century, vestiges from the 15th century dotted throughout the site indicating just how big it must once have been. The dwelling, bearing living witness to this rich religious past, is now in a satisfactory state of preservation, but it is need of some interior works in order to bring it in line with modern-day standards. Such a project could be based on its vast potential with regard to living space and its numerous outbuildings.
