Dol de Bretagne We’d heard Dol de Bretagne was a lovely town, but we also had another reason for visiting. We came in search of crepes.

And crepes we found.

At a nautical themed restaurant at the top of the main street called Round Avel.

We started off sampling the local cider. It was not like the cider I’ve had before. You could really taste the apples!

I’d managed to search out a crepe without even trying.

After eating our lunch we wandered some more, picking up some cheeses and more local cider for later.

We also found a local cake called Pave de Dol which we couldn’t resist!
