What to expect

Visit the Royal Abbey, located in the little town called Fontevraud-l'Abbaye, and plunge into 1000 years of French history!

Founded in 1101 by Robert d'Arbrissel, the Abbey gained prestige thanks to the Plantagenets dynasty: Henry II, King of England, his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, previously Queen of France, and also their son Richard the Lionheart, who made the Abbey of Fontevraud a royal burial place. The Abbey of Fontevraud was then converted into prison under Napoleon from 1804 to 1963, then in 2000 listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and today combines heritage, living spaces, and contemporary artistic creation.

Head to the former stables of the Court of Honour where the Modern Art Museum was recently built. Discover a remarkable collection of paintings, sculptures, and drawings by the greatest masters in the 19th and 20th centuries such as Toulouse-Lautrec Degas, Dufy, Van Dongen, Rodin, and many others.

During your visit to this exceptional site, you can enjoy a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant (at your own expense) set around the cloisters. in a peaceful atmosphere.
