We had a terrible tour guide and tried to hang back as much as possible to take pictures without the crowd. The tour went overtime but we did enjoy the grounds, the shop and especially the restaurant, which had excellent vegetarian options. I am still dreaming about the tomato tartare and courgette flan! Try one of their local wines or even the grape juice.

Fontfroide is definately worth a visit. It is a beautiful collection of religious buildings and the gardens around it are stunning. The whole place has an eerie feel to it.
There is also a nice, although expensive, restaurant.
If you are visiting in summer check for the performance program - there are often music events.
The entry fee is not cheap - 9€ - but its worth it if you'd like to visit a beautiful historical site in excellent condition and learn about this monastery from the 1100s.
