A garden respecting the environment :

Created in 2009, the priory's textile garden contains 40 kinds of plant used either for dyeing or providing fibres for clothing, etc...

Arranged in squares of nine different colours, it groups together varieties of plants known  to have been present, cultived and used in Europe during the history of working with textiles. Information sheets are to help you identify the plants and explain their uses.

A new natural area to discover : the monks' ancient fish pond.

An inventory was made in Springtime of the flora and fauna present in and around the pond. Now you can follow a footpath in this humid area using the interpretation panels provided to help you identify the species which you may find along the way.

The orchard :

At the end of the XXth century, an orchad of apple trees was plants where the monks had their garden in the XVIII th Century. The trees provide both cider and eating apples.
