The Abbaye is a classic, classified monument dating back to the 12th century, located in the very heart of Provence. This exceptional venue is perfect for couples who are wanting a majestic and refined location in the South of France to celebrate their wedding day.

The outlook of the building will instantly conjure up the very best of Provence: the beautiful architecture of the place, the orchard with its lavender bushes and its alley of cypress trees. All of this is framed by the gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside.

The Abbaye consists of 2 adjoining spaces of impressive Norman architecture. The nave, called St Martian room, will definitely deliver a wow factor with its high ceiling and large glass door overlooking the Ventoux Mount and the Apt valley.

This space can sit up to 200 people and would be perfect for your wedding dinner.

The second room, St Maurice, just as stylish but cosier, can sit up to 130 guests and could be used for your blessing or as a dance floor.

You could decide to use the gardens for the reception drinks or for your brunch the day after the wedding. If you fancy a wedding dinner outside, place some fairy lights amongst the cherry trees and enjoy the magical evening with the Abbaye beautifully lit in the background…

Finally it is possible to sleep up to 120 people in the gorgeous fortified village nearby (less than 3 minutes drive) and the villages around (just 15 minutes drive away). The venue owners can organise a taxi service to get your guests back to their accommodation.

It is also to be noted that the kind owners have been welcoming weddings for more than 20 years and will be very happy to provide you with all their wedding tips and recommendations.

Things to do in the area: the Abbaye is part of a typical French fortified village that your guests will love! You will find there a good bakery, several restaurants as well as an art gallery and several little shops. The Abbaye is ideally located to explore the Luberon park and its delightful walking trails. Further away, you can discover other Provence villages and towns, such as Apt (3 kms away), or even the famous Avignon, city of Popes, 50 minutes away.
