For a number of years, the community of canons had been suffering from having to reduce its hospitality due to a lack of sufficient places.

The acquisition and restoration of two large houses in the village with superb views of the Orbieu and the abbey have enabled the canons to offer beautiful accommodation in the village.

In addition, the abbey’s guest accommodation was narrow and not very comfortable. In addition, the increasing number of groups and families visiting the abbey meant that certain facilities had to be upgraded (including adapted kitchens). Withthe new guest house, the abbey’s major restoration project has come full circle!

These installations were planned prior to the restoration of the bell tower, transept and church. What’s the point of offering a place of beauty and rest if you can’t stay there ?

The new guesthouse now occupies the entire east wing of this courtyard and presents visitors with a magnificent facade that invites rest.As soon as it opened, containment completed, it was taken by storm and the joy of these numerous guests has become for the community the finest of rewards !

The abbey wishes to be open to all, especially the most disadvantaged. A path for people with reduced mobilityenablesnow easier accessto the abbey. A room for the disabled has also been fitted out.
