Abbaye Sainte Madeleine was founded in the year 1978 by Dom Gerard Calvet as a way to continue the life and traditional practices of Benedictine Monks. It was also established so as to teach people about the conventional sacraments of the Catholic Church. The Monastery offers spiritual assistance and silent retreats to the pilgrims as per the Benedictine tradition. The 55 monks of the monastery leading an ascetical life silently open a world of mysticism before you. The thriving nature that surrounds Abbaye Sainte Madeleine praises the Creator in a completely different language. There’s even a little article shop near the Monastery which is run by the monks and where you can find Mystical and religious books.

Beautiful moving visit. The abbey is stunning. The monks are very religious and pious. The services are very very touching. The store has a wonderful selection of products from the abbey and other abbeys in France. The bread is heavenly.
The Benedictine monastery dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene is a very spiritual sanctuary. The 55 monks of the monastery with their ascetical life silently open before you a world of mysticism within you. The verdant nature that surrounds the monastery praises the Creator in an entirely different language than the pre-Vatican Council and Latin Tridentine liturgies used within the monastery. Monastery has a holy article's shop nearly run by the same monks of the monastery. You can find religious and mystical books as well as other items (eco friendly, most of them) which come from other monasteries as well. The monastery offers silent retreats and spiritual assistance to the pilgrims as according to the Benedictine tradition.
It is a place of silence and peace. A wonderful place.
Lieu très agréable l'été pour le repos et le pique - nique sous les chênes. L" abbaye compte environ 50 moines. Tous les chants sont en grégorien. Le plus bel office pour moi , le soir pour les complies à 19 heures 45. Le plus beau pour la veillée Pascal.
