Fontevraud the Hotel has been created in former outbuildings of the Royal Monastery. The quality of the masonry and the interiors is very high throughout the Hotel and the renovation is very contemporary in feel without unfavorably impacting the architecture of the buildings.
The brackets that carry the roof edge are carved into imaginative figures.
The great beauty of the cloisters provides hours of enjoyable strolling and admiring the incredible work that went into crafting the many buildings by hand.
In the village, a memorial to the town accountant murdered by the Nazi’s during the War years, provides a pause to be grateful that we don’t face the need for violent resistance in our day.
Loved all the pictures…..especially the one with the stained glass windows reflecting on the wall. The kitchen was especially interesting too!
Thank you Valerie! We loved it so much had to go back for this our second visit. Its a great place to stay too.
