Located in the heart of the Pilat Park, the beautiful village of Sainte-Croix-en-Jarez is the only village in France where the monastery has been transformed into a village inhabited. Some homes are located within the fortified walls and are spread over two seats. These two parts are joined by a very long corridor serving Lane. Church and monuments to explore, a tour is carried out if desired. A stone tunnel allows you to leave the chamber and lead to the creek that runs throughout. Within these walls, one feels the weight of the history of St. Croix.
Nearby you will find excellent cheeses and farm produce.
Visit the monastery.
