The elegance of simple fabrics, the refinement of sober colours… Coco Chanel drew her inspiration from this majestic place. In fact, the prestigious Chanel logo comes from the intertwining letters “C” on the abbey’s stained-glass windows.

The abbey, with its pure architectural lines and stone walls, is nestled in a preserved décor at the heart of the medieval village of Aubazine. It was built in the 12th century and is a listed Historical Monument. It attracts many visitors and numerous events take place here each year.
