The extraordinary architecture of the Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay rises up out of this place steeped in "power and mystery". It is thus that the cellar, which is now a music room, and the gothic room with its large fireplaces are reborn and alive. The former refectory of the lay brothers is now the renamed "Prior's table" restaurant. There is also the breathtaking monks' room with its two bays with their ribbed vaults and sandstone capitals and columns. Over eight centuries of history for you to absorb. The former cloister, the reading gallery the mill and the chapter house have once again their existential vocations. The Cistercians had invented everything and we must bring back to life these magic places, which have been blessed by God and the kings of France. Saint Louis and Marguerite de Provence drank the water of fertility from the St. Thibaud fountain, whose source is still in the neighbouring wood and which quenches the thirst of our hosts today. In turn, we can share the timeless message of this place and drink from the source of this "new Abbaye de Thélème".
