Locronan

A commercial centre and a member of the Petites Cités De Caractères network (denoting its rural location and population combined with its heritage and history), Locronan has also been voted one of the loveliest villages in France (Les Plus Beaux Villages de France).

This authentic commune has also retained its architectural heritage, which makes it a delightful village with its church, its houses dating back to the 15th century and its museum. Numerous cinema films and short films have also been shot in Locronan. Among them “A Very Long Engagement” by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, “Chouans!” by Philippe de Broca and even “Tess” by Roman Polanski (based on Thomas Hardy’s novel Tess of the d’Urbervilles). For movie buffs, the tourist office offers themed guided visits detailing numerous film-related anecdotes.

Within Locronan, there are master glass workers, weavers, painters and sculptors who have shaped the history of this village. The artists draw their inspiration from this small Breton setting in their most original works. Thanks to the Breton climate and the existence of significant streams running alongside the region, Locronan specialised in both the production and sale of sailcloth. Subsequently, the famous village became the centre for weavers.

Known for its evening market of craft workers, art and local produce, called the Marché aux Étoiles bringing together around 100 craft workers, Locronan enhances its buildings, which date back to the Middle Ages, with its Christmas lights.
 
For art enthusiasts the Musée des Beaux-arts houses a significant collection of Breton paintings. Ideally situated 5 km from the sea, Locronan features many hiking and mountain biking routes.
