The rebirth of the Chartreuse de la Verne
More or less abandoned, the Chartreuse de la Verne in the Maures Massif was assigned to the Waters and Forests office by the Ministry of Agriculture in 1961. The monastery was saved from disappearance by Les Amis de la Verne, an association founded in August 1968 by Annette Englebert and Annick Lemoine. Between 1969 and 1982, Les Amis de la Verne, who had become the tenants of the site, worked on its renovation. In collaboration with the historical monuments association and the REMPART group, they launched major works that brought the Charterhouse out of oblivion and allowed it to regain its monastic vocation. From 1982, the Chartreuse de La Verne was able to welcome monks again, then from 1986, nuns from the Bethlehem family, the Assumption of the Virgin, and Saint-Bruno.
