Since the 6th century, Benedictine monks have found Occitania an ideal place to live out their faith. They lived a contemplative and communal life far from the towns and villages, on land where everything had yet to be cleared and built on. It’s in this region that you’ll find our charming rental properties with swimming pool.

Situated between Montpellier and Toulouse, between Narbonne and Carcassonne:

64 abbeys nestle around our charming estate. The monks found these protected natural sites an ideal setting for their contemplative vocation, punctuated by prayer and work.

That’s why we have such marvellous architectural, technical and artistic heritage in Occitanie, left by the monks and nuns. Through their know-how, they have enhanced an area of exceptional beauty, calm and silence under the Mediterranean sun.

It was under the Benedictine Order and its Cistercian development that magnificent abbeys were built. Some of them, such as Lagrasse Abbey, Cuxa Abbey, Saint Martin du Canigou Abbey and Notre-Dame de Donezan Abbey, are still home to a lively monastic life.
