Noël à Bon-Repos

This is my last Christmas related post, I promise! January is just around the corner so I have no better time to share our festive day at the Abbaye de Bon-Repos. Plus, I don't know about you, but I intend to stay in that Christmassy mood as long as I can!

The weekend before our holiday, we made our way to this beautiful place that we always like visiting, expecting to see a full-on Christmas market. Well, that wasn't quite the case but we still had a very nice time! I think I didn't quite understand the fact that although there were a few activities inside the Abbaye and that the place had been decorated for the occasion, the rest of the area didn't have anything Christmasy happening, so of course, no market was taking place at the same time.

Anyhow, we still went inside and enjoyed hearing the band playing whilst looking at the current exhibition. More photos below!

We really liked some of the artist's illustrations and you can tell straight away that he's passionate about the whole celtic culture around Bretagne. Some of them really had a nice feel. He's known under the name of Brucero and you can have a look at his work right here.

Also, even though the photos don't look great because of the lighting, we enjoyed discovering some parts of the Abbaye that were all decorated for the various activities they'd planned. The dragon was quite impressive!

After warming up with some hot mulled wine (you can see the steam coming out of the glasses!), we went for a long walk around the Abbaye, waiting for the sun to go down so that I could take some photos of the historical building with the lights on. We didn't stay until it was properly dark though so the lights don't look very impressive unfortunately!

I hope you all had a great Christmas and I'll see you in the new year!
