Let us build together
a monastery
for the 21st century

Sainte-Marie de la Garde
Today

The main house, together with the other buildings, will be the heart of the enlargement. It is located on the edge of a plateau in a woodland area.

On the south-west side, twin pavilions were transformed at the start of the project.

An ancient sheep-pen was turned into a chapel between 2004 and 2006. The style and materials of the chapel are in harmony with the local region: bell-wall (clocher-mur), and use of Puymirol stone and Agen-style floor tiles (tomettes). A statue of Sainte Foy, a local martyr (303) to whom the chapel is dedicated, stands over the porch.
