ⓘ List of Premonstratensian monasteries in France

This article is a list of Premonstratensian monasteries in France, that is to say, monasteries or nunneries belonging to the Premonstratensian Order of canons regular, following the Rule of St. Augustine. In the early days of the order its foundations were mostly double monasteries, viz., communities containing both canons and nuns. After a few decades however the joint houses were separated.

The dates given, unless otherwise indicated, are the dates when an establishment began and ended its Premontratensian career, which is not necessarily the same as its lifespan as a religious house.

Extant abbeys are indicated by bold characters.

Dependent priories are not listed.
