Fast lane with Vannes en tetê…!

Again, encore un fois, I come to you in black and white on my series of updating and revising and refreshing old post from the beginning of my blog. Things has change in many way we cannot believe, places gone, repurchase and only we kept the memories in these posts. Therefore ,here is my beloved Vannes again.

Walking around Vannes some went to the cinema and we went to eat! We walked by the St Patern district ,very old quaint nice and friendly, and had our lunch in already our favorite place Le Gavroche, 17 rue de la Fontaine.  We ate the dishes of beef with hot vegetables and potatoes, fish colin et lieu with hot vegetables and potatoes, flaky dish of goat cheese in a flaky crusty bread, a bottle of cider, expresso coffee,and of course started it all with aperitifs of kir mûre, pêche,porto. All for less than 27 euros per person. More here: http://www.legavroche-vannes.com/#openModal

We still had time so we walked the streets of Vannes in the district or quartier St Patern, seeing how archeological artifacts were found when renovationg the church, and the history of it, with a nice shot of the belltower.

We decided to do the round of créperies and bar à nuits in town that we have been or would like to go, these include the night time bar A Tribord, 28 rue st Patern. Now closed here for the memories.

Créperie Dan Ewen, 3 Place du Général de Gaulle is one we had tried a while back,and  after so many crêperies here,this one becomes routine,nothing more. https://www.creperie-danewen.fr/

We stop by the Irish pub Le Chat qui Grogne, 12 Place Cabello, right in a quaint area that I just like it a lot. This is for that old Guinness pint and having some real sports watch;  looking forward to drag myself around here ,and it is a primer in my blog check it out. https://www.lechatquigrogne.com/

And ,the  ramparts of the old castle of Vannes, at night time that is awesome, as well ast the gardens of the Castle of the Hermine or Chateau de l’Hermine,and last the jardins or park of the Garenne high above from the ramparts after climbing the old castle walls along rue Francis Decker.

Another that my collegues at work recommended to go and after one try closed we came back to taste and it was sublime. The Créperie Le Métairie de Kérozer, is in the countryside at nearby town of St Avé. Sadly, there is a long message to close by Christelle manager/owner. “Good evening everyone, I regret to announce the closure of the Creperie, health concerns unfortunately do not allow me to resume work. And a creperie without a crepe maker … I would like to thank all those, customers, clients, suppliers etccc who followed me and supported me in this great adventure, I would have lived very beautiful and good times with all of you !!!!  Our other establishment, the Crêperie de Keroyal in Plougoumelen, remains open. My husband and my brother will be happy to welcome you there !!! ” https://www.facebook.com/Metairiedekerozer

We went as well to see membership information at the Vannes municipal pool or Vanocéa, at about 88€ per year for 25 entries per person is not bad. The winter is coming and is nice to have a place to swim under a roof and heated pool lol!!! There is a smaller one at Auray. https://www.golfedumorbihan-vannesagglomeration.bzh/aquagolfe-vanocea

To end our hectic day, we headed out to the town of Lanester, near Lorient at about 35 km from me to check out a new Géant Casino hypermarket that just gave us the welcome and a coupon for 10€ in addition to running some nice promotions of buying 2 ketchuts and getting two free lol! Actually the sale was great saving about 50€ but the trip is a bit long, far from us really, will consider for an eventuality or another nice promotion ::) The centre commerciale or shopping center of Les Deux Riviéres . This was  the first shopping center in the Morbihan with 80 stores and more than 11 500 m2 of space and now has a new owner/name the G la Galerie with now 74 stores.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
