This a cool little medieval village in south Finistere that looks like it hasn't changed in 500 years, apart from the shop signs. It's also a good place to get Kouign Amann, a delicious buttery cake from the region.

We travelled to Locronan as something to do as part of a day tour to this area of Brittany from our Base in Concarneau.what a beautiful village. We followed a set walk around the village and had a wonderful couple of hours here. The buildings, atmosphere and small artisan shops kept us going for the 2 hour visit. We would definitely recommend to others as it proved to be a step back on time, but a rewarding step back.

We had a lovely time in Locronan, going on the short walk around town, visiting St Ronan's Church and looking at the beautful, well preserved buildings. We had a wonderful warm, sunny day. Later we came back for dinner. There are lovely classic patisseries, bars and restaurants. There are shops too. The architecture shows that Locronan was an affluent town in its history. Enjoyable, but you probably need a car or a tour to get there.

This was one of our most enjoyable locations in this part of Brittany. The old village streets really gave you a sense of what like was like here many years ago. We enjoyed doing the recommended walk through the narrow streets and the neighbouring lane ways. The church is interesting with a fabulous granite stone floor, very peaceful church music was quietly playing in the background which helped convey that this was a place of sanctuary and worship. It was obviously the centre of community life.
We were initially concerned by the large number of tourist shops, but on reflection they did seem to deal in higher quality traditional gifts and there was really very little 'cheap tat'. Also we felt that the large number of eating places offered good quality and reasonable dining opportunities. Look into the glass blowing showroom and the pen/calligraphy shop.
You could easily spend a couple of hours / a half day here, but I would recommend getting here early before large numbers of visitors arrive.
