Stay

Retrait at the Abbey


If you are looking for a time of recollection, of personal and community prayer, of spiritual rest in silence, the monks will be happy to welcome you in the context of the peace and beauty of the guest-house.

This hospitality is available to both groups and individuals, men and women, for a period of 2 to 6 nights.
Guests are invited to participate in the prayer of the Community. Those who so wish may ask one of the Brothers for spiritual guidance. Groups come with their own spiritual director. Each year, during the summer period, there is a week-long retreat guided by one of the Brothers.
To promote the atmosphere of recollection and interiority, meals are in silence with background music. For the same reason, silence is requested inside the house and in the guest-house grounds. Conference rooms and parlours are available for meetings.
