Chartreuse de la Verne
Chartreuse de la Verne is a Carthusian monastery, beautifully situated in the middle of the Massif des Maures surrounded by forests. The monastery or chartreuse was built in 1170 but has been abandoned, re-occupied and reconstructed several times. Since 1983 it has been occupied by a Carthusian congregation called the Order of Bethlehem.
The monastery has been extensively restored in the last few years and is well worth a visit.
