Exploring Europe's largest abbey in France's Saumur wine country

In the French Loire Valley region of Saumur, wine and the arts blend well with beauty, both natural and man-made. Here, exceptional vineyards sit among architectural treasures, such as the royal abbey of Fontevraud. Founded in 1101, it’s the largest abbey in Europe and is now a hotel whose grounds extend over 14 hectares. FRANCE 24's "You are here" takes you to see it and to meet a local Saumur winegrower.
