From the half-timbered Alsatian houses of Eguisheim to the lavender fields of Montclus in the Languedoc-Roussillon, this illustrated guide unveils the beauty of rural France, providing complete visitor's information for these exceptionally preserved destinations.

Carefully selected each year, the French villages featured in this official guide are replete with historical, architectural, and natural riches. An introductory paragraph presents the history of each village, and is accompanied by recommendations for monuments, museums, and other places to visit. Practical information includes accommodation options ranging from hotels to campsites, restaurants and markets, artisanal produce and local specialties. Details on leisure activities encompass festivals, events, and excursions that encourage visitors to explore the surrounding area on walks and hikes, by canoe, or on horseback.

The book includes an overview map of France, and each village is featured on an easy-to-read road map, accompanied by indications for the best way to arrive by road, train, and airplane. Suggestions for neighboring villages that should not be missed, along with their proximity, simplifies itinerary planning. Cross-references and an index by region complete this practical, authoritative, and accessible guide.

The mission of the association of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France , founded in 1982, is to protect and promote the heritage of villages rigorously selected for their patrimonial wealth and architectural quality. It has also pioneered an international federation of The Most Beautiful Villages in the World, which is committed to sustainable develop ment and the preservation of historical and cultural heritage in Belgium, Quebec, Italy, and Japan.
