Choses et Autres, Locronan

Bonjour mes amis!

Returning home to Leicester after two weeks in France has been hard, but at least I can share some more stories with you. The second week of my travels were spent in the Finistere region of Brittany, which made for a great contrast to the Vendee. Brittany is much greener and hillier, with picturesque towns and rocky cliffs, compared to the flat sandy beaches of the Vendee with cycle paths and salt marshes.

For me, one of the most delightful places was Locronan, a ‘Petite Cite de Caractere’ previously used as a filming location for Roman Polanski’s Tess.

Full of creperies, gift shops and biscuiteries, Locronan is a haven for tourists, as I found out. The best shop though by far was Choses et Autres.

The shop front

 

Set over three floors connected by a stunning wooden staircase, this shop is full of handmade Italian clothing and accessories, exquisite jewellery and antique furniture and homeware. I could have easily bought everything in this shop, but sadly I could not.

This photo I took just shows how crammed full this shop of fashion wonder.

Luckily though, I did manage to come away with a treat. This gorgeous navy blue lace waist belt. I could have had any colour I wanted, but as I wear a lot of navy blue, I had to buy it (and it also makes me feel very French when I wear it!)

Beautiful!

 

Definitely worth a visit to Locronan and Choses et Autres!
