The local hype about this being a stylish, arty Cornish-style village did not come true for us. A nice little trip on the boat to get there, but a dump.

If you like houses with colors and cats, this is here. The best thing to do is to walk around, and sit at a terrace to enjoy the view of Nantes

A place to discover with its colorful houses, small bars and restaurants. There is a green playground for kids under large trees. Overall the village is worth a small visit, especially if ypu come by boat.
