Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
After a glorious day of sunshine on July 14th, le ‘Pont’, the Friday commonly taken in France to extend a Bank Holiday weekend, appeared to take a turn for the not-so-great.
Holiday-makers, locals and passers-by were undeterred by a spot of drizzle, and Bistrot Les Tontons continued to exude un petit air de vacances as the terrace and festivities reflected.
As the evening drew in, the ambience moved inside the wine bar – those choosing full dining residing at the tables, and those casually sharing a glass or two of wine standing at the bar and enjoying a plate of charcuterie.
With an atmosphere accueillante et chaleureuse it was no surprise the evening ran into the small hours!
