Bon-Repos

Each Sunday morning during the summer months there is a small market on the banks of the Nantes-Brest Canal in the shadow of the Abbaye de Bon-Repos that sells local wares and delicious foodstuff.  It’s a perfect location for a lunchtime picnic or bite to eat in one of the busy little cafés.

The walk along the canal is equally enjoyable in the winter months when a sense of tranquility abounds in the tiny commune of Saint-Gelven…

The Abbey which is open to the public, showcases a wide range of contemporary art and in August provides the backdrop for a magnificent a sound and light show.

You can check out the website for market opening days, times and special events here

I’ll be posting about the Abbey soon, but in the meantime you can find details from their website and the programme for the 2017 Sound & Light show here.
