Walking around Le Releq

Wendy Mewes’ books about Brittany are wide-ranging, fascinating, and, in the case of the walks, very good indeed. Walk no.5 in Walking & other activities in Finistère is a wonderful walk of 11 km along green lanes, through small hamlets, and over open moorlands with the opportunity to explore the beautifully restored Abbey of Le Releq.
