    Walking into this cathedral felt like coming home. The peaceful atmosphere the light the architecture were all so familiar. Very reminiscent of the great cathedrals in the UK without the gift shops and hordes of tourists. If one felt moved to prayer there were no velvet ropes keeping you away. Wonderful.

    Recommended. Highly interesting, Architecture 101! .....i.e. a really good basis for architecture students, and a reinforcement with interesting insights, for those already familiar with church architecture of the centuries covered by the exhibition. Lots of information, would have been good to have the facility to return for a second look later in the day using a 'pass out' system. Found the English commentary a bit pretentious.

    Worth a visit if you are in the area and you can take a picnic as there are seating areas near by, not a great deal to see

    If you want to learn something about oysters or bouchot mussels the only activity they present is to drive you in a trailer along the bay during low tide...if the house is open..and if the employees are willing to help you. They also could organize some oyster tasting with the local farmers or set up guided walks thru the farms and let you speak to the farmers, set up birdwatching tours or even fishing trips . None of this is possible .

    I only went in as an afterthought after I had visited the amazing Cathedrale. This was where I discovered about the origins of the royal Scottish family of Stuart. The subject was well researched by one of the staff of the Office de Tourisme , both in France and Scotland, and presented in a small book, helpfully produced in both French and English.

    This charming Museum of Rural Life has been assembled by two passionate farmers over a period of years. If you love France, history and/or farming, this is for you! Set in beautiful countryside, the farm still has the traditional animals - pigs, calves, rabbits, cattle, chickens - looking very happy in their traditional surroundings, There is a huge collection of farm machinery, room settings showing a schoolroom and a Breton farmer's house complete with box bed, displays about all the rural trades - butchery, brewing,saboterie, saddlery etc. - and you wander at will amongst all these aged but enchanting memorabilia. There are signs in (sometimes rather creative) English as well as French, and as you leave you are offered a drink of their excellent cider. Also available - honey and, unusually, rope, made locally and very strong. No sweets or ice creams and it's not a zoo, so maybe small children wouldn't enjoy it - but it's a very special place.

    The guide was amazing and witty. The 2 hour visit is splendid. The “pêcherie traditionnelle” allows you to have your feet in the water up to your knees and see crabs, rays, various fish, crabs, jelly fish. Etc…. We were never bored. You can stay on the train if mobility is an issue.
