Saint Guilhem le Désert

Historical village

As an important halt for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella, Saint Guilhem le Désert is part of the most beautiful villages of France and is listed as one of the Grand Sites de France®. Well deserved titles. The village is nestled between the dazzling cliffs of the Val de Gellone. When the night falls and when the evening sun touches the rock bringing golden shades to the abbey, the village is at its best.
