“Beautifull little town to visit”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

When in the Brittany area of France visit this place ,easy free parking and lovely little shops nice walk down the main street to the church I thought the restraurants were very pricey take a packed lunch much cheaper lots of art/ gift shops and the obligatory canned fish shops seems almost everywhere in Brittany has canned sardines or fish soup shops but this is well worth a visit

“A treat in May”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Thoroughly enjoyable as a picturesque spot, at a time when it was not overwhelmed with visitors. We strolled, taking photos, chatting to shopkeepers, looking at the paintings especially, and admiring the views in the sun. Lunch at the Coin du Feu was just right. May was definitely the time to go.

“just love this place”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Its like stepping back in history - great place to visit if you're in the area. Parking is limited so get there early to grab a parking space.

“Fairy village”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

The village of Locronan boast being one of the most beautiful villages in France . I guess that is right, although I can imagine that list is quite long !!
The place is a little enchanted gathering of typical Bretagne Stone houses , and walking around its narrow and flowers-filled streets is just a pleasure .
We visited the place in September, so there were not many people around . If you plan to visit, you might want to avoid high season periods, as I cannot imagine the experience being such a great one when you are bumping into another visitor every second .
Just walk around the place, and look for the pastry and chocolate shop in the Church square . It is a treat, just like the village is .
