About St. Philbert de Grand Lieu
The Town has a population of approx 4.000 and like Radyr is growing.
It is situated about 25 miles south-west of Nantes and stands on the southern shores of the Lac de Grand Lieu. The River La Bologne runs through the small town, close to the centre there is a 9th century abbey which is used to host many ceremonies and functions. St. Philbert has a very good shopping street in the centre although the area is mainly agricultural with 300 hectares of vineyards, mostly producing the Muscadet wine.
There is an extremely pretty camp site on the river banks with nearby facilities for fishing, swimming, sailing, canoeing, tennis and mini-golf.
