A rich Legacy

The walls of l’Abbaye des Vaux-de-Cernay echo with 900 years of captivating history. Founded in 1118, this Cistercian Abbey thrived with a devoted community of 200 monks by 1147. Despite trials, it endured until its division in 1790, nearly becoming a forgotten quarry.

Rescued by the visionary Baroness Charlotte de Rothschild in 1873, an art lover, painter, and musician, she restored each building with meticulous care and added new constructions, creating the estate known today. As the Rothschild era concluded during World War II, the abbey sheltered statues from the Palace of Versailles under German occupiers’ noses. Now, in 2023, l’Abbaye des Vaux-de-Cernay embarks on a new chapter, ready to enchant a global audience with its timeless allure.
