Very lucky to discover St Mathieu and it’s light house with a fantastic panorama over the sea and Countryside. Nice to see by all weathers as the landscape looks different at every hour

The lighthouse and abbey are beautiful. I’ve never visited a place like this and was speechless. Take your time and explore the trails around the abbey and visit the museum too. The guide of the museum is very welcoming and helpful.

We visited the abbey ruins and than took a walk along the spectacular sea cliffs. This was well worth the time it took to drive out here. We also stopped at a lovely Biscuiterie-Gift Shop.
