Saint-Antoine-l'Abbaye : Michelin's recommendations
This imposing and beautiful abbey is an unexpected sight, situated in the middle of nowhere between the Chambaran forest and a tiny village. The abbey still houses the precious relics of St Anthony of Egypt who lived in the 3C and is considered to be the first monk and hermit of Christianity.
