Abboutique

Come to the Abboutique, located within the walls of the Abbaye aux Dames. This bright shop offers you an original space filled with discoveries. Local produce (Pineau wine, cake, etc.), traditionally made products (jewellery, etc.), games offering children a fun approach to music and books on the architecture of the region, the Camino de Santiago and composers and their pieces can be found here and almost nowhere else!

You will also find recordings of artists who have taken part in the Festival de Saintes.

On the terrace, you can savour tea, coffee and fruit juice in the beautiful light of Saintonge.

The Abboutique is also where you can buy tickets for our concerts – you simply must visit!

By shopping at the Abboutique, you are also making a civic commitment to a regional cultural business with an international sphere of influence.
