Chers amis,

“L'Ermitage” and “Foyer Saints Louis & Zélie Martin”, the two reception houses of our sanctuary, offer you an accommodation and catering service upon reservation. The services in the two houses are equivalent, our reservation teams will offer you the house best suited to your request, depending on our availability.

The community of Sisters Servants of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the lay staff will welcome you there for your retreats or pilgrimages, or simply for lunch during a family walk in the footsteps of the Martin family.
