Chartreuse and forest


The Carthusian monastery, or Chartreuse, was founded here in the early 1700’s, where a Benedictine monastery once stood. The Carthusian monks built this monastery in the 17th and 18th centuries.
It stands in the heart of 1500 hectares of very beautiful forest lands.
As you visit the convent church, the chapel of the relics, the small and large cloister, and monks’ cells, it is easy to imagine the world of silence and solitude that the Carthusian fathers and brothers lived inside the monastery.
Wine-tasting inside the cellar at the Chartreuse.
The monument is open for visits every day from 1 March to 15 December. 16 December to 28 February, visits are possible only on Saturdays and Sundays, except for 25 December and 1 January.
Visit on own, or book ahead for a guided tour.
