Les Cistels” Tea Room

Coming from the large car park, the path which leads to the new reception area offers an unusual view of the monastery buildings and the north hillside. A small stone bridge will take you into the Abbey grounds and to the new tea room.
It’s a great place for tourists, concert-goers and walkers to take time out for a tasty snack.
Pastries, ice-creams, savoury tarts, cocottes, dessert boards, made from local and garden produce, will lure you for a break indoors or on the patio. Cold drinks, hot chocolate and a variety of teas, herbal teas and coffees complement the offer. It’s an invitation to enjoy the site in a different way.

You can enter the tea room without an Abbey entry ticket from 11.30am to 6pm.
