In the wonderfully romantic setting of the Oise valley, just 5km from Noyon in the heart of the forest with its network of hiking paths, lie the impressive remains of an ancient Cistercian abbey built in 1129 by the bishop of Noyon. Currently occupied by the community of Servants of Jesus and Mary, this site has preserved - aside from the ancient abbey buildings with their beautiful 18th century classical architecture - the highly evocative ruins of the choir from the second abbey church and a rare 13th century building. The room referred to as the “Hall of the Dead" and which is now the chapel once served as a hospital and an infirmary for both monks and the sick. There’s also a shop selling items made in various monasteries across France, a bookshop and temporary exhibitions.

Children’s discovery tour includes a free gift for all youngsters.
Groups welcome – pre-booking required.
