Abbaye de Villeneuve

15 minutes from Nantes, a place of nature, countryside and serenity:The Abbaye de Villeneuve, 4 star hotel in Les Sorinières, magnifies the heritage of the Cistercian monks who founded it in the 13th century.

In the shelter of a 20-hectare domain, they cultivated knowledge and enlightenment here. The abbey has changed, but the inspiration has remained. The age-old stones now house a luxury hotel, 100% elegant and charming. Zen atmosphere, cocooned rooms, elegant and friendly atmosphere and high-quality gastronomy… A place not to be missed!

A story,

At the beginning of the 13th century, in a chaotic France where man is both building and destroying, uncertainty affects both the most privileged and the most disadvantaged. The only possible refuge is belief in God.

In the Nantes region, near Machecoul, the monks of Buzay Abbey rapidly increased their assets thanks to donations from neighbouring lords. The distance of Buzay from the lands of Villeneuve posed practical problems for the monks, and Duchess Constance of Brittany, a well-known figure in the region, proposed the creation of an abbey in Villeneuve, certainly with the aim of redeeming her bad deeds and purifying her soul and those of her ancestors.
