Nearby is L'Abbaye de Bon Repos which was originally built in 1184 and has been successively ruined and rebuilt over the centuries. Its superb setting next to the River Blavet and the Nantes-Brest Canal is well worth a visit: there are weirs, salmon stairs, a former water mill, a mediaeval stone bridge over the river, a restaurant and a very interesting fossil, jewellery, objects d'art shop. Opposite there is a creperie/bar where you can sit and drink watching the world go by. On Sunday mornings from Easter to October there is an interesting local market where traders sell organic produce and crafts - it’s not just for tourists and is also popular with locals in Brittany. The abbey is now being restored and to raise funds for this a grand ‘Son et Lumiere’ is presented around the second weekend in August when around 400 local people, horses, dogs, etc, enact the history of the abbey and the area. It is a fantastic event starting around 10.30pm and ending around 12.30am the annual spectacle with fireworks, music, projections onto the building, and costume scenes
