Pont-Aven was probably my favorite of our day trips. As an art history major, I was in heaven.
If this looks like a painting, there's a reason why. Pont-Aven was home to the group of artists who were collectively referred to as Pont-Aven School, and included names like Emile Bernard and Paul Gauguin. There are plenty of stories about these artists, especially Gauguin, and you can just imagine them walking the streets.
There are painted doors exhibited in the museum, probably painted by one of the painters in this clan, for rent or a meal.
Can you imagine walking up those steps to get home?
The Gloanec Day is the name of this painting by Paul Gauguin in 1888..
I couldn't get enough of the blue shutters everywhere!
We had the pleasure of dining at Les 3 Buis Restaurant for lunch...
Tarte de Sardines
The most delicious ravioli I've ever tasted...
After we made it very clear how delighted we were with our lunch, we visited the kitchen!
The sauce for my ravioli!
The chef/owner could not be more charming or talented!
Still more to come...
