A superb abbey which was founded in 1137 by Pierre II, Viscount of Castillon. The religious community was made up of Cistercian monks sent by Gérard, abbot of Cadouin. The abbey flourished throughout the Middle Ages thanks to its scriptorium, some of whose transcriptions can now be consulted in the Cadouin Abbey archives.

Historic monument with listed Chartreuse-style facade, roof and parklands, as well as ruins. The property offers 447 m² (1,076 sq ft) of living space, plus a small service flat comprising a living area, bedroom and bathroom, as well as a separate caretaker's cottage of approx. 45 m² (484 sq ft). The gallery and cloister measure 263.52 m² and the parklands comprise just over 10 hectares of meadows and woods.

The setting is ideal and the property is only 10km from Saint-Émilion a medieval town which is also steeped in history, perched atop a magnificent natural amphitheatre of vines. Read more ...

In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the abbey, then under the commendation system, was run by some of Bordeaux's greatest families, including the Montesquieu family in the person of the famous thinker's uncle and younger brother.
After the French Revolution, the abbey fell into disrepair before being acquired and restored in 1972 by a writer who made it his favourite place to live and write.
