Some of our readers will know that Radyr is twinned with Saint-Philbert-de-Grand-Lieu (since 17 May 1986, in fact).
You may be wondering, however, where Saint-Philbert is located - and what can be found there.
Here's a link if you want to find out a bit more about our twin-town: Saint-Philbert.
It was founded following construction of the abbey of Carolingian Deas, established in the ninth century (pictured above).
It's a town of more than 9,000 inhabitants (a population which is growing steadily mainly due to the proximity of the Nantes area). It has a rich historical and environmental heritage which makes it a tourist attraction - and it is located just twenty kilometres from the Atlantic coast.
It is situated about 25 miles south-west of Nantes and stands on the southern shores of Lac de Grand Lieu. The La Bologne river runs through the town. St. Philbert has very good shopping centre - although the area is mainly agricultural with 300 hectares of vineyards, mostly producing the Muscadet wine.
If you want to now more, you can visit the town's website (which is all in French) or contact our Twinning Fellowship.
