Three senior staying near Brionne decided to visit, and we are so glad we did. Conducted tours are on every week day apart from Tuesdays, and are at 10.30; 3.00 & 4.00pm. A small fee is charged. Don't expect the Tour Guide to speak English, she tries, but then why don't we just learn French !! The tours are good, but are kept to the rather basic public areas, so do not expect to see the inhabitants at play. All is serene and beautifully kept, and well worth a visit.
The village is also delightful, but as we choose to take the 10.30am tour, the brasserie in the village was not open. The positive to the early tour was that there were only six of us on it.
The Abbey shop is well stocked, and the Monk looking after it, is a delight himself.
