It will take you around 45 minutes from the Sunêlia l’Escale St-Gilles campsite to drive to the village of Locronan which is one of the most beautiful villages in France. You will be amazed by its rich architectural heritage: its church and chapel, the central square and its granite houses… Locronan will seduce you if you like of old stones and authenticity!
In the bend of one of its alleyway, you will not fail to enter its craft shops and discover the talents of local craftsmen through the products. Whether it is the glassware, the ceramic, leather and tin shop, the cutlery, the weaving, embroidery, lace, marine clothing, the art photo gallery, the watchmaking, or the souvenir shops typical of South Finistère, such as the Henriot faience factory, or the gift ideas, you can only find your happiness there. In the main square, you will taste regional products such as kouign amann, Breton cake, delicatessen, Breton wines and drinks. And you will not fail to enjoy a meal in one of its creperies or restaurants, in a unique and authentic setting.
The Locronan mountain, a listed site, with its wooded landscapes, serves as a setting for the characterful city of Locronan, in the heart of the Black Mountains massif, offering magnificent views of Douarnenez Bay, Cap de la Chèvre and Menez Hom. Locronan is also the starting point for many hiking and cycling tours. You will thus discover the Bois du Nevet and its circuits, for pretty walks in the wooded alleys of the forest during your Breton holidays.
The visit of Locronan is an essential stopover during your holidays at the Escale Saint-Gilles. This small city of character, typically Breton and full of charm, will surprise you with its authenticity and its narrow streets. Admire the richness of its architectural heritage: its imposing Saint-Ronan church located on the main square with its curbstone well, its cobblestones, its bluish grey granite houses and its Notre-Dame-de-Bonne-Nouvelle chapel.
