Our Lady of Fontgombault Abbey

Reception at the Abbey

The Abbey welcomes, insofar as it can, people who are looking for a place of recollection and spiritual renewal, as well as the monks' families and friends.

This welcome is not a hotel activity in the strict sense of the word: the monks receive you in their home, within their walls and at their table, just as a family receives their relatives and acquaintances. Monks do their best to receive guests as Christ himself did, as St. Benedict requests, but all are invited to be content with the austerity they find in the monastery. Guests may freely contribute, according to their means and desire, to the expenses of their stay, for which there is no fixed fee.
