Head for Provence!
Sénanque Abbey is a famous place of pilgrimage in the Vaucluse region of Provence. Founded in 1148 by Cistercian monks, it is considered to be one of the most beautiful abbeys in France. I'll leave you to admire the beautiful architecture:
Sénanque Abbey is a jewel of Romanesque architecture, with its blonde stone buildings contrasting with the surrounding green hills. The monks built the abbey to devote themselves to prayer and study, but also to cultivate the surrounding land.
The abbey is open to the public for tours and concerts, and is also a place of retreat for the Cistercian monks who still live there today. The abbey gardens, with their lavender and aromatic herbs, are particularly renowned.
Our Arcadie Florale, fragrance is inspired by the lavender fields, and we've worked on the scent of a bouquet of dried lavender and the lavender honey accord. It's a soft, warm fragrance that we love to curl up with.
The site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981 for its unique architecture and its cultural and spiritual history. It is a place of peace and contemplation that attracts thousands of visitors every year.
In conclusion, Sénanque Abbey is a place well worth visiting for its beauty, history and lavender, and for the peace and serenity it offers to those who visit.
