Visiting the garden

During your visit to the Gardens of the Abbaye de Valsaintes you are invited to explore their history and the remarkable grounds, but also to meet the people who run them, and bring them to life through guided tours, garden events, and Gregorian chant.

Tours for individuals runduring opening times and tours for groups run all year round, on request.

Free visit to the garden

The Gardens of the Abbaye de Valsaintes can be visited freely during opening hours.

A visit to the garden of the Abbey of Valsaintes is an invitation to wonder, stroll, relax and enjoy its peace, combined with the pleasure of discovering an exceptional natural, historical and spiritual space.

To get to know these gardens and soak up their peaceful atmosphere, we recommend that you plan a visit lasting two hours, or even more, if you feel touched by the happiness of this place.

Guided tours

Nature — history — spirituality all gathered in one place, narrated and explained by our “house guides”.

These guides are among those who “left the world behind” some years ago to help the 4th Cistercian Abbey of Provence find its place alongside its sister Abbeys; and to make a “garden of nature” bloom among its wildernesses.

Guided tours take place regularly during the opening hours of the gardens, as well as occasionally during event days or during L’Abbaye en Roses. Find the schedule for regular tours below.

We also offer specific guided tours for groups: associations and schools.
