OK. But you're on the right track.
If you can figure out which area of France I used to live in, (Clue in my Pseudo) that will help you

No, neither Normandie, Bretagne or Hauts-de-France gave me the right one.

Sorry, my brain just didn't seem to want to focus on sleuthing today.  Maybe when I get up in the morning I'll give it another shot and who knows, I might even guess it.

Of course, I have no idea where it is , so I tried to Google the location from the image, but even Google doesn't know... so this is a world-wide mystery!
And a great idea for a quiz!

But even if no-one does I'll post a short video soon

I looked at so many cathedrals in the area,   and then this popped up as Relais Le Bocage.   But I dont understand what it actually is?

Ah. That's the hotel the pilgrims use when they come to visit the Basilica (Cathedral).
You're right on target.

So it must be Sanctuaire Notre-Dame De Pontmain,    although they are all called Notre Dame it seems.

All these church things are so complicated

basilica vs cathedral

If we talk about church buildings, then a basilica has the highest permanent designation. A cathedral however may or may not have the status of a basilica. It is where the Bishop's throne is and that would give that cathedral a greater status than a basilica.

I just like it because it's a great building - without the slightest interest in the ecumenical ramifications

Yes. When the sun shines through, the whole interior lights up in Ultra-violet. It's extraordinary.
I've just posted a link to my YT video I took last week with the Mini3Pro. In the CITY section.

It's worth the visit for the interior views alone. If the sun happens to shine through the windows at the opportune moment, the whole interior shines with a kind of ultraviolet hue.
I've just posted a video of the exterior, by the way.

The front facade is over 70m high, and it's not possible to stand far enough back to get it all in shot with the P2 because of surrounding buildings.
