Welcome to Le Thoronet, in the heart of the Var!

Your property, in an unspoilt natural setting

Le Thoronet is particularly well-known for its magnificent Cistercian 12th century abbey. But it’s also a quiet and typically Provençal village, located in the Communauté de communes [federation of municipalities] « The heart of the Var».  It is surrounded by magnificent countryside and is located in a ZNIEF (A natural area of special ecological, faunistic or floristic interest) and in a Natura 2000 site. Move to Le Thoronet and breathe in the Provençal scrubland among the oaks, olive trees, thyme and rosemary…and as the population, on the increase since the 80’s, well knows: settling in Le Thoronet is to prioritise one’s quality of life!

Visit Le Thoronet Abbey

This architectural jewel classed as a Historical Monument since 1841 attracts many visitors each year.  Rightly so, this Cistercian abbey built between 1160 and 1230 is a master piece that would inspire even the best authorities in the matter, marked by a truly harmonious distribution of its volumes, both pure and elegant.  It is one of the «three Provençal sisters» along with the two other Cistercian abbeys in the region: Sénanque and Silvacane.

After centuries of occupancy by monks, the abbey unintentionally went into decline.  Thankfully, it was saved following restoration work undertaken from 1841 by Prosper Mérimée, writer but also inspector of historical monuments.
