It depends... as usual
By RIPE's  recommendations /64 IPv6 Networks should be assigned to end 
users and by definition end users should not deal with BGP, routers and 
other networking mumbo-jumbo's
I don't know details about your current setup with ISP but it's probably 
follows well known logic: 1'st address is default gateway so you must 
just assign IPv6 address to end station and point it to the "default 
gateway". ISP will advertise aggregated prefixes (incl. your /64) to 
entire world

About IPv6 p2p links we can refer to RFC6164 

Probably this is not your case but ... KISS forever! :)
