Locronan is a very impressive and unspoiled Brittany village. Officially one of the 'most beautiful villages of France', it is 15 kilometres north-west of Quimper in the Finistere department of western Brittany.
With a history that goes back more than 2000 years, Locronan was originally a sacred place for the celts known as a 'nemeton'. It then became an important religious centre during the middle ages, and an important centre for the manufacture of sail-cloth for the local ship-building industry during the 16th and 17th centuries.
Exploring LocronanThe whole centre of Locronan is extremely well preserved and quite extensive, and largely built in the distinctive local granite. The solid houses with traditional slate rooves are interspersed with plenty of greenery, making for a very attractive village.
Park in the main car park and enter the village by walking along the straight street that leads from here to the centre of the village.
There are traditional granite houses and a few restaurants, art galleries and shops along this street and the village church is straight ahead of you. You quickly reach the cobbled Place de l'Eglise: from this square you can easily reach all the highlights in the village and explore the surrounding streets.
The Place de l'Eglise is a large, attractive square entirely paved and surrounded on all sides by very well preserved ancient buildings, with the substantial vaulted church the most imposing among them. Almost all the houses date from the 17th and 18th centuries and are different heights and have small architectural highlights and characterful roofs that make them interesting, and there is an ancient well in the centre of the square.
If you think Locronan looks familiar perhaps you are recognising it from one of the films that have been made here - it has featured in several films including Tess by Roman Polanski.
Make a full day out of it, and visit the town of Quimper, or go to the coast, and see Douarnenez or Camaret sur Mer on the beautiful Crozon peninsular.
Come and taste a week at Le Deran before it's too late.
After these two weeks are booked, you will have to wait until next year...
Choose from Saturday 27th May or Saturday 10th June.
Both weeks reduced by £100!
Plenty of places to sit here;
The new pergola over the patio area is complete, plus the seating area on the lawn.
We have planted climbing plants (honeysuckle, passion flower, clematis, rose & grape vine), which will hopefully grow and provide shade.
