Pont-Aven : the village of artists

Pont-Aven : the village of artists

Your holiday at Locouarn campsite would not be complete without a trip to Pont-Aven. This famous village of artists owes its fame to its school of artists founded by Gauguin. Whilst you are visiting this arty village, you can visit the Musée des Beaux-Arts, a museum listed by « Musée de France ». Here, you will find no less than 850 works of art displayed at its permanent exhibition and three temporary annual exhibitions.

If you take a stroll along the banks of the Aven and across its many footbridges you will understand why it was such an inspiration to so many artists.

One of the loveliest walks in the area is the Promenade Xavier Grall which takes you from one bank to the other along secret footpaths. You will come across several wash houses, millraces and sluice gates. And of course, your visit would not be complete without tasting the famous galettes or other biscuits from the « Biscuiterie Traou Mad».
