The program of this trip

at the abbey of Valmagne and Pezenas

Throughout this day, I will be both your driver and guide. It is with me that you will visit the abbey of Valmagne and Pezenas since I am authorized to guide you in these places.


Cloister of the abbey of Valmagne in the Hérault

The east gallery of the cloister

It is perfectly preserved, it is a true haven of peace surrounded by vineyards, away from the village of Villeveyrac.

The cloister, perfectly preserved, is superb. From its four galleries emerges a restful harmony.

The church, which has huge oak barrels in the chapels, is amazing. You will be surprised by the imposing dimensions of this building.

We will visit the abbey together: the cloister, the abbey church, the chapter house, the old refectory, the fountain in the garden ...


Grape produced by the abbey of Valmagne

In a vineyard plot in Valmagne

Moreover, it is at the abbey, after our visit, that I will invite you to taste the wines of the Allaines family estate. As often in the abbeys, wine has been produced here since the Middle Ages. The current owners therefore manage both visits and events of the abbey, the vineyard and a restaurant.

For lunch, you will have the choice of feasting at the abbey restaurant or at one of the good addresses in Pezenas that I will indicate to you. You will decide on the moment, according to your desires.

If you like oysters and mussels, I will suggest lunch at Le Saint-Barth ' in Marseillan (15 minutes from the abbey of Valmagne and 25 minutes from Pezenas). However, reservations are necessary at this restaurant, please let me know when booking.

To find out more about Le Saint-Barth ', read my blog post that I dedicated to him.


In the rue de la Foire in Pézenas

Pézenas has many pedestrian streets

The other major site that we will visit together is Pezenas. The historic center of this charming little town is surprisingly rich.

Thus, during our walk along the pedestrian streets of Pezenas, you will discover the Renaissance facades and the interior courtyards.

Of course, you will have time to appreciate the many artisan shops and taste the famous "patés de Pezenas" ...
