Back to the fairy tail of Rochefort en Terre.

I am off from work until Jan 2 2014!!YES! and trying to find ways to get speed up on my house and ideas to get out for the Holiday season is not easy. We went back to mythical quaint , Rochefort-en-Terre in my Morbihan dept 56. Last article on them was back on May 12,2012! Times flies when so much to see.

this is a reminder on the tourist page for this town,  and here they are in the site of the most beautiful towns of France,  , and they are ,also, in one of the best flower towns of France designation with four flowers!, here , and if that all don’t convince you of what I am telling you, they are also, in the designation the towns of character and arts of Brittany, right here they are sublime,

The idea is that here an American from Baltimore came once,Alfred Klots  started the painting revolution, brought in more painters and created a school, they passed away ,not able to past the heritage ,the city purchase the castle and now its an Arts center in town, drawing folks year around the story ,

We come just for lunch at Café Breton, in the old town, classed one of the crêperies of character and tradition in Brittany, it is there since the 16C, , here are the others in the Morbihan, we have already been to several and they are all very quaint, traditionally Breton, and nice,

The town Church from the 12C is a jewel not to missed, Notre-Dame-de-la-Tronchaye, more special in Christmas time. We came this time for the marché de Noêl or Christmas market, where the whole town is lit up with lights of Christmas, and the businesses stays open past the hour. Beautiful and just when my camera ran out of flash !! therefore missed the night shots….until next time.

You can still see some of them,and the funny Santa mailbox all ready to send those late minute gifts; the business of the Kaleo, dragon arts, rucher with pain d’épice and honey, all wonderful at this wonderful time. Time to tell you all.

MERRY CHRISTMAS , JOYEUX NOEL, NEDELEG LAOUEN, FELIZ NAVIDAD, FELIZ NATAL; may you all have a wonderful fairy time with yours wherever they are, and remember ,it is not just one day but eternal. Cheers.
