La Vielle Abbaye Amenities

'La Vieille Abbaye' might once have been the site chosen by local monks for their abbey but a recent careful and luxurious renovation by its Anglo-French owners and Stephane and Kate Le Moigne, who live on site with their young family, has made it a place both parents and their offspring will find truly worship-worthy!

The setting alone is stunning being a 600 acre dairy farm with beautiful rural views and neighbourhood Friesians almost as far as the eye can see, but it’s the attention to detail in the interiors, facilities and services that really make the Abbaye a truly special find. The interiors are a pretty yet elegant blend of Scandinavian country chic and pretty French antiques, whilst the truly huge list of baby gear (see grey table below) guarantees stress-free packing for parents, whilst a huge range of in and outdoor toys and delicious optional breakfast and dinner deliveries ensure everyone feels spoilt and mums and dads get plenty of time to relax.

Accommodation is flexible with five ensuite rooms offered on a b&b basis outside school holidays, as a 1-bedroom gite for 2-4 (1xdouble* & a sofabed) , a 3-bedroom gite for 4-8 (3 doubles* bedrooms & a sofa bed), one large gite with all 5 bedrooms for 10-14 (4xdoubles*, 1 x quad & lounge sofabed). * Some king-size.

UPDATE: New Play Barn Added June 09
