10 minutes from Narbonne, enter the heart of a preserved and private universe, a listed heritage which preserves within its walls the architectural riches and the spirituality of the men who occupied it, from the Cistercian monks to Gustave Fayet, artist and patron, who acquired the Abbey in 1908. Under his leadership, Fontfroide became a place of artistic encounters and creative effervescence. The Abbey is imprinted within its walls with rich testimonies of these residences to be discovered during a visit, a concert, an exhibition... Gardens and Architecture come together in Fontfroide: integrated into the visit of the abbey, the rose garden and the gardens classified "Jardin Remarquable" and "Refuge LPO'" are an invitation to a bucolic walk. Complete your discovery with a walk in the surrounding massif and enjoy remarkable views of the thousand-year-old heritage. A gourmet stop is a must at the Restaurant de Fontfroide or its cellar to taste the wines and some local products.
