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.
My name is Len Clark and I’d like to take you with me on a journey through memory and hope. We have had a second home in the Loire Valley (near Saumur in Maine-et-Loire) for about 8 years. We are hoping to make the move to France within the next 6 months or so and plan a year’s trial to see whether we make it permanent.
My wife, Anne, and I have always had a love affair with France. She spent a year in Brittany after her A-levels and speaks very good French. I stumbled along with French that would make Tony Blair look fluent (although I hope it has since improved). Every time we went with the children for a summer holiday we would fantasize about buying a place in France … but that”s only for the wealthy, isn”t it?
And so it would have stayed until my sister-in-law changed the rules. But that’s for next time.
