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.

Etang du Korong

The vast lake at Glomel is an inland paradise for all manner of wildlife and has a lovely sandy beach from where you can hire canoes and sailboats or simply enjoy dipping your toes!

There are extensive fairly level trails around the lake, often peppered with local fishing enthusiasts, which provide the perfect landscape for bracing walks and are thoughtfully dotted with picnic tables at key locations.

 

There is a Municipal Campsite near the beach end of the lake, just a short stroll into the village where there is a small shop, bar and an amazing pizza restaurant, Tan Dezhi.
