    This magical place is hidden in the woods. We ended up in a swamp following the wrong trail. Finally gave up and returned to parking to discover a tour bus parked in front of the real trail. We then followed an excellent trail back to the fountain. There were only about five other people there so don't know where the tour group was.

    You are really in the woods and it does feel magical.

    We were doing a day tour of the Forest of Broceliande and lunch time approached but no restaurants appeared. We drove through the beautiful countryside but there were no restaurants or they were closed. It was Monday so that's not unusual in the country.

    We found a promising sign to a creperie in Trehorenteuc but couldn't find the creperie. Finally we took a wrong turn and decided our luck couldn't get much worse so we continued on the D134 hoping to find a town. Thankfully, Neant sur Yvel appeared and was a cute little town. There were several restaurants and all appeared to be open. We parked by the church in front of one restaurant and since we were parked there, decided to go in. Excellent decision!

    Favorite Dish: We entered a warm cosy restaurant buzzing with all the locals eating their mid-day meal.

    We started with a salmon gratin in a wonderful sauce. For our main course, we had chicken and apples in a crust with the best chicken gravy I’ve ever had. This was accompanied by roast potato wedges and a gratin of cauliflower in cheese sauce.

    It was all heavenly and the bouncy young waitress seemed overjoyed to be serving us . . . and all the other customers. We had a wonderful little round gateau with a chocolate center accompanied by rum raisin ice cream and peach slices in an exquisite vanilla sauce. Great lunch. Definitely a "find."
