We found this convent while strolling around the area and followed the signs to see what kind of sweet shop it would be. It was like walking into a very small Sound of Music set or mini theme park and the cakes are delicious.

Ring the bell and wait for a very kind nun to welcome you. Tasty cookies, Roscos, sablé,.... we bought an assortment and really like the sablés. Nevadida a bit less. Worth trying!!

We had read that one could buy good cookies from the nuns of this monastery. You pass a door, go to a window. A nun, who you never see, passes you cookies in a box. I think they cost 3 or 5€. They are very...More

We looked at these wonderful reviews and also bought 500g of the mixed sweets, but I have to say we expected the cookies to taste a little bit better..they didn't really taste home-made, just something you could buy from any supermarket. Would not buy again,...More
