The abbey is located in the heart of the Fontfroide Massif, which consists of 4000 hectares of unspoilt nature. Bathed by the Fontfroide stream, this sumptuous Cistercian ensemble from the 12th and 13th centuries is nestled in the heart of a typically Mediterranean landscape. During the Crusade against the Albigensians, it became a bastion of Catholic orthodoxy in the face of Catharism.
After the last departure of the monks in 1901, Gustave and Madeleine Fayet bought it in 1908, restored it and embellished it. Inside, the terraced gardens on the hills are open to visitors. They are labelled Remarkable Gardens and LPO refuge.

The village huddles against a hillock on top of which the stands the truncated cone-shaped edifice that gave Simiane-la-Rotonde its name: the keep, or rotunda, of the old Château des Simiane-Agoult. Built in the 12th century, its massive exterior is remarkable for its hexagonal shape. The interior, an uneven dodecagon, is especially splendid. It is a vast room with a series of  arches topped by finely sculpted capitals.

Our chef Gilles Pierres puts local and seasonal products at the heart of his cuisine with a menu renewed every season and a lunch formula that changes almost every day. His experience as a chef, particularly at the gourmet restaurant Les Costans in Perros Guirrec, has been highlighted several times in the guides. He himself likes to define his cuisine as follows: "For me, cooking is above all an emotion. The elements come together, a little like poetry, to form a harmonious whole and always tell a personal story. I conceive my cuisine as an invitation to travel, a stroll along our Breton coasts, between local products and flavours from elsewhere. I like to surprise by unknown associations"

Saint-Émilion is a key wine town in the Libournais district of Bordeaux, important in terms of both quality and quantity. It lies just a few miles north of the Dordogne, in the final stages of the river's journey from the hills of the Massif Central to the Gironde estuary. The town is renowned as much for its beautiful buildings and scenery as for its wine. Its steep, narrow, cobbled streets, overlooked by its Romanesque church and the iconic 13th-century Tour du Roy tower are a reminder of the town's long history.

There have vineyards around Saint-Émilion since Roman times, and today the Saint-Émilion wine appellation is one of the most prolific in the Bordeaux region, generating more than 250,000hl of wine each vintage. It is also responsible for some of the most prestigious, long-lived and expensive wines in the world – châteaux Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Figeac and Pavie, whose wines sell for hundreds of dollars per bottle, are all situated in and around Saint-Émilion. Only red wine qualifies for the appellation; a little dry white wine is made within the appellation borders, but it must be labeled as Bordeaux Blanc.

Graves is a wine district on the left bank of the Bordeaux region in France, characterized by the gravel soils (graves) after which it is named. Unique among Bordeaux's sub-regions, Graves is equally respected for both its red wines as for its whites. The district's catch-all appellation is AOC Graves, which covers both red and white wines. A typical Graves red is based on the classic Bordeaux grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot sometimes in a supporting role. The typical Graves white is dry, mid-bodied and usually made from the equally familiar combination of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
