We loved walking up through the vineyards to the abbey. Shopping a bit, tasting some wine in the shop, hearing the nun's beautiful singing and enjoying the view.
Enjoyed a walk on a sunny autumn day to this beautiful place. Arrived just around mid day and the cafe or the vine cellar were closed ( open on Sunday's in the afternoon only).

I've heard of that abbey a couple of times, and while this was laying on our way back home, we decided to drop by over there. It was such a hot summer day and it was great to have a house made fruity cake and a delicious wine, which they made too. The people were friendly. There is a great... 更多
Standing on top or nearly top of a hiss this lovely convent commands fantastic views over the village and the river. The sisters make and sell wine and there is also the obligatory gift shop.
