We come by car on the N165 expressway getting off at La Roche Bernard and continuing on the road D774  passing Marsan, Paule, Limerzel, before reaching Rochefort en Terre on some wonderful twisting roads. You can also ,go by the N166 direction Rennes and then take the D775 road direction Questembert ,then road D777 direction Pluherlin,  and reaching Rochefort en Terre.

We have come every year for the last five here and each year is wonderful. It is indeed a magical town as been small it completely shape up as a Christmas market with beautiful decorations. Folks come in by 17h or 5 pm to really enjoy the lights all over and good cheers. And get good parking! The whole town is loaded!

We had our apéro at the Le Menestrel pub restaurant at Place St Michel, and then onward we go, tasting bit and bites all over the chalets and commerces open all night. I was told it is closed,need to confirm.
