Ermitage sainte Thérèse

The Ermitage sainte Thérèse is part of the Sainte Thérèse of Lisieux Sanctuary as a centre for spiritual welcoming, offering the possibility of being lodged and having your meals in the same conditions as in other religious homes.

The building structure easily allows the welcome of sick or disabled people (no medical help is given) but the Ermitage sainte Thérèse is very much open to all : individuals, groups or families who would like to experience their pilgrimage in joy, song and prayer.

Situated beside Carmel, the Ermitage can welcome 190 pilgrims divided into 92 rooms with shower and toilets. Of Normand style, it offers dining rooms, meeting rooms and a chapel dedicated to Notre Dame of the Smile and which is open to all of those who would like group or silent prayer. You may also enjoy the private peaceful gardens. The Ermitage can organize meals for groups of up to 300 people.
