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.
