About the visits to the local craftsmen :
Our region boasts an endless variety of crafts. Fontevraud hides brilliant cottagey shops. Richard the enlumineur, for example, has no shortage of passion to comment about the illuminated paintings he creates in his workshop. His wife, Einav, designs unique jewellery just next door to the abbey. Michel the home decorator will also welcome you into his quaint workshop. Your teacher will also take you to visit a magnificent 5 hectare rose trail.
