It was raining but it was lovely. I don't know what to say really apart from it exceeded my expectations of a gorgeous Breton town. Clearly it is catering entirely for tourists. The church is fascinating. Superb relics.

This is one of the most charming villages in France. It was once the sail making centre for England as well as France. If you are in the area do not miss the opportunity to visit this beautiful place

The center of town is closed to most traffic so that you can wander among the well preserved church and buildings. Have a good meal in a local restaurant.

What a lovely place to spend a day. Charming medieval village with many small artisan shops to visit, also little lanes and back streets to wander. Not to be missed.

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and the village was packed. The following day it was virtually deserted, so we had the best of both worlds. It is an extremely photogenic village. Apparently it was the site for filming Tess of the Durbervilles. It doesn't...More

Locronan is a member of The most beautiful villages of France . And i agree with that !! It's such a wonderful medieval city that seems surreal , like it was taken from a dream or a movie. Nervertheless films such as Long Engagement, Chouans!...More
