SERENE REFUGE

Time moves slowly at the Valvanera Monastery offering space for reflection and a retreat within. In the stillness offered by the woods and streams, the abbey invites everyone to take a break, disconnect and find spirituality. The dressed stones of the monastery are testaments to a rich history in an environment propitious of contemplation and finding yourself and your faith. In this haven of peace, those who come to Valvanera can immerse themselves in the tranquillity of prayer, contemplation, finding the calm they seek or simply immersing themselves in the place’s serenity.

A spiritual retreat at Valvanera Monastery is an opportunity to reconnect, find your inner peace and experience the harmony between being and the nature surrounding us. A journey that connects to the age-old spirituality of this sacred enclave.

THE VALLEY OF WATER

A Gateway to Calm

The magic of nature unfurls all of its splendour through the brooks winding gently among the beech woods around the Valvanera Monastery, whose name comes from Vallis Venaria or Valley of Veins of Water, due to the abundant sources of water, creeks and waterfalls flooding its landscape.

The Valley of Water is a visual spectacle; it is a refreshing embrace for all the senses, a constant symphony of creeks and endless trails linking the summits in sight and the nearby towns. The perfect place to disconnect in nature. That is why it is a place frequented by mountaineers and hikers; cyclists and motorbike riders; couples, families and people who love solitude. These people come and go, but they always have a moment to think about life and reflect.
