    “The Abbaye holds a special place in my heart. I was 18 when I worked at the Abbaye for the summer in 1965. I was fortunate enough to visit this remarkable site again in October of this year. The Friends of Clairmont Association who take care of this historic site have carried on the work of the two young Parisians who fell in love with the site and put their heart and soul into the restoration of this religious architectural beauty; a Cistercian abbey of the twelfth century. This is a must see and tour for all individuals who wish to touch and feel the soul of this rare and magical building. The work on the Abbaye is continuing and needs your support. Visit, take the tour and you will be touched by those who lived and worked there.” «L'Abbaye occupe une place particulière dans mon cœur. J'avais 18 ans lorsque je travaillais à l'Abbaye pour l'été 1965. J'ai eu la chance de visiter ce site remarquable en octobre de cette année. L’association des Amis de Clairmont qui s’occupe de ce site historique a poursuivi le travail des deux jeunes parisiens amoureux du site et s’est investie corps et âme dans la restauration de cette beauté architecturale religieuse; une abbaye cistercienne du XIIe siècle. C'est un must et une tournée pour tous les individus qui souhaitent toucher et sentir l'âme de ce bâtiment rare et magique. Le travail à l'Abbaye se poursuit et a besoin de votre soutien. Visitez, faites le tour et vous serez touché par ceux qui y ont vécu et travaillé. ”
