3pm: Awaken the senses in La Gacilly

Take time to stroll around the streets and alleys, always decorated with flowers, in La Gacilly. If you pay attention, there are some lovely surprises in store: sundials, hanging vines… And if you enter the stone houses, you’ll be able to watch jewellery designers, glass spinners, potters, sculptors, etc., at work. In the lower part of the village, don’t forget to visit Maison Yves Rocher, an immersive museum dedicated to the local entrepreneur. You can experience a visual, sound and olfactory journey into the universe of the cosmetics brand made in La Gacilly.

7.30.pm: A pre-dinner drink on the edge of the Aff

Take a seat on the wooden terrace of the Végétarium and enjoy a little drink. Choose a Breton beer or a house cocktail, with or without alcohol. Drink with moderation while the Aff calmly flows by your feet. Are you hungry? Ask for a table in the Jardin d’hiver and enjoy the colourful and tasty cuisine. If you’re there on a Thursday night, the restaurant also proposes a varied musical programme and an aperitif-concert menu. Blues, jazz, rock and world music will accompany your delicious meal.
