An exquisite Abbey church set in a beautiful calm and quiet ancient hamlet. The church is remarkable for the remains of frescoes which adorn the walls and ceilings. A quiet place of calm.

This used to be a prosperous nunnery in the XIVth century. The Church and its attendant Cloister in the Roman style contain a series of interesting frescoes. You pay a fee for an excellent guided tour of the Cloister and the nearby small Museum

Lavaudieu is a charming medieval village. Only local residents are permitted to drive in the village but there is a car park on its edge. It is beautiful and a photographer's paradise! The guided combined tour of the ruined monastery and museum is very worthwhile....More

Such a lovely small town - and the abbey was really interesting. Fabulous frescoes on the vaulted ceilings. Also delightfully cool on a hot day.
