France's answer to Hay on Brittany

I just came across this article about Bécherelin Ille et Villaine, which has one bakery and 15 bookshops! Like Hay they also hold a number of festivals “the

annual Easter book fair, a book market on the first Sunday of the month, and seasonal festivals. The second Saturday in August is reserved for the popular Nuit du Livre (Book Night) with evening sing-alongs and readings.”

Its an amazing place!! I have an article which contains more ‘practical’ information… Guide2Brittany guide to Becherel.
