    by freya_heaven Written Apr 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a lovely little shop, apparently one of the best wine shops in the Morlaix area for choice. I am sadly not a wine drinker but there was certainly a huge range of wines for all bugets here.

    What to buy: Wine?

    Le Basier L' Hotel de Ville: Unsual Gifts

    by freya_heaven Written Apr 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Morlaix has its fair share of tourist gift & post card shops, but I felt this shop was just that little bit different. It has the most gorgeous African & Asian/Indian photos, artwork decorated note books, photo frames & albums etc. All very reasonably priced too.

    a wonderful liquor store in a historical square on the convent of the jacobins this is the square and the museum of the city, the cellars of jacobins is right here.

    large selections of liquors typical of Brittany. Here since 1896. Open normally from 9h and closes at 19h15 Monday to Saturdays with some minutes differences.
