The walled 11c castle town is set in the wonderful Brittany countryside. This is a busy place with many individual shops, regular market and typical Breton hospitality.
Regular exchanges have built up long-standing friendships and new visitors are welcomed warmly. During the 5 day visits much activity is packed in - local attractions, dinners with friends and always some free time to explore with your hosts.
