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.
As the flight from Dinard to East midland was cancelled the other day (28th Nov), I had to take our visitors to Nantes airport to catch the next flight to East Midlands.
I had never been to Nantes, nor the airport, but I must say I was impressed by both. The centre of Nantes and the airport.
The airport was very easy to find – very well sign-posted and parking was not a problem.
It took us 2 hours from Dinan. If you have to go to Nantes airport, go 2 hours early and visit the centre. The chateau is beautiful (it was too cold and windy to walk round the ramparts!), and the historical centre is worth a visit too.
I left my camera in the car so I can’t even share photos of it!!
