“Les Chambres de l’Abbaye” Hotel

A night at the abbey, ideal for slow tourism

Located near the Flow Vélo cycle route and the Saint-Jacques de Compostelle walking trail, Les Chambres de l’Abbaye hotel will appeal to both cyclists and hikers alike, providing a calm and original destination.

Vaulted ceilings and parquet floors, silence of the end of the day – unless a few musical notes escape from a rehearsal room- together provide the setting for a memorable stay.

After a first-rate breakfast with predominantly local products, our visitors like to visit Saintes, officially recognised as a “City of Art and History” and stroll along the Charente river.


The site of the Abbaye aux Dames has been certified “Bike-friendly”.

La Flow Vélo is a new 290 km national cycle route, starting in Thiviers in the Dordogne, passing through Saintes and terminating at the Ile d’Aix in Charente-Maritime.  The path often runs along a river and has other recurring themes such as local specialties, peaceful rural countryside, local crafts, vineyards, charming villages and towns renowned for their history as is our beautiful town of Saintes.

Close to the route, the Abbaye aux Dames has been awarded an “Accueil Vélo” label, cyclists are more than welcome here. A secure room is available for bicycles overnight.
