What & Where


The private dining room at Bistrot d’Alsace (Hotel les Voyageurs), Place G. Clemenceau, Mayenne has been booked.

They are offering us a three-course menu at €15 (excluding drinks) with a choice in each course :


salade de chèvres chauds OU terrine maison
plats principal 

bavette d’aloyau frites maison OU poisson du jour

moelleux aux chocolat maison OU crème brûlée

Vegetarians: please advise on the booking form whether you eat fish, eggs, cheese or milk.

Planetarium :

This will be set up inside La Chapelle at La Visitation and seats 20.

So, numbers are limited! Book early.

The show with commentary lasts about one hour.



The astronomer (from L’Observatoire Populaire de Laval) who runs the Planetarium will set up a telescope outside the chapel, subject to the weather.



The restaurant is in the square with the fountains in the centre of Mayenne, and parking is not always easy.

You may want to consider parking at La Visitation and walking to the restaurant, about 0.5km or 5 minutes, as we shall later be at La Visitation for the show.
