Many people seek to visit the Hermitage in France. Consequently we have added some contact details on this blog. Sometimes these people are already in France and find they have the time to make the trek to Lyons and then on to St Chamond. The Brothers and lay Marists at the Hermitage are always very welcoming. It is important for visitors to have a reference to take with them or to be referred to by a Marist in their home country. The Hermitage has recently been refurbished and it now looks stunning, returning the older areas where Marcellin Champagnat lived to their original state and building the newer section on the north side of the Gier.
