Vaut vraiment le détour
By Karine for Saveurs & Patrimoine 4 months ago 5
Nous avons été enchantés par notre visite à l'abbaye et surtout par la formule choisie : - un accueil chaleureux - l'histoire de l'abbaye et de ses vins - une dégustation à l'aveugle très sympa, (même sans être de fins connaisseurs, c'est très ludique et on peut avoir de bonnes surprises ) - une jolie abbaye avec de beaux extérieurs - et pour finir un excellent déjeuner. Le rapport qualité/prix de la formule est top! Si vous êtes dans le coin n'hésitez pas !
