Visit one of the most beautiful villages in France'

Locronan, officially one of the 'most beautiful villages of France' was a sacred place for the celts - known as a 'nemeton'. The cobbled Place de l'Eglise dominated by the substantial vaulted 15th century church of St Ronan are in the centre of the village, and the best place to start your visit. Be sure to explore the small side-streets heading off from the main square with their artisan boutiques and small boutique art galleries. If you think Locronan looks familiar, it has featured in several films, including 'Tess' by Roman Polanski.

Historic town of Quimper

Quimper derives its name from the Breton word kempir meaning a confluence of two rivers, in this case the rivers Odet and Steir. The old town is well worth a visit, home to a distinctive cathedral with twin spires as well as the Breton museum and Art Museum. Its cobbled streets are a joy to explore, and it offers good shopping opportunities for those who like a bit of retail therapy!

Set on the bank of the river Odet, south of Quimper city centre, this Château was the former residence of the Bishops of Quimper. The gardens present a typical French 17th Century garden, mixing Italian Baroque and French Classicism. Terraced areas descend down to the river, with many unusual tree species, as well as a good show of flowers and a fruit and vegetable garden.
