"The Abbey and Gardens at Valloires" Argoules by Beausoleil
Argoules Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 24 photos
In all honesty, I'm not sure we saw much of Argoules. We went on a very rainy day and to see the Abbey and Gardens so zipped through the town. I have a photo of a rooster by the side of the road but not much more. I highly recommend the Abbey and Gardens . . . preferably on a sunny day.
I'm putting my 3 photos of Argoules in the rain (with rooster) on the main page as a prelude to the Tips on the Gardens and Abbey which are stunning even in the rain . . . although sun would have been better.
We followed this chipper fellow through town to the Abbey, parked and then visited both Abbey and Gardens. Highly recommended. See Tips below.
- Pros:Very small and quiet
- Cons:Very small and quiet
- In a nutshell:You visit Argoules for Valloires Abbey and Gardens and they are fabulous
This is a Cistercian Abbey founded in 1137. They still hold services but there is also an association that runs a school... more travel advice
