Belle France Guide to The Most Beautiful Villages in France

Les Plus Beaux Villages de France

Welcome to the real France. Part of France's great appeal is its diversity; the landscapes, the cuisine, the architecture, the traditions – every region has its own signature.

Take the Loire, with its stately châteaux and flower decked villages, or the Dordogne with its undulating landscape and laid back way of life: it's easy to see how each département can provide something unique to make your holiday in France exceptional.

Its coastline has so much to offer, from the rugged headlands of Brittany and the historic D-Day beaches in Normandy to the vast sandy shores of Charente and the Mediterranean charm of the Languedoc. Then there are the majestic mountain ranges to discover: the Pyrenees where the Cathar castles lie and the Vosges, where there's an undeniable German influence. Whatever time of year you visit, France is truly enchanting.
