Explore France’s Most Beautiful Villages in 2021
“Les Plus Beaux Villages de France” is a prestigious association which awards villages of notable beauty, culture and heritage the accolade of one of France’s most beautiful villages. Six of these are in Normandy, just a short ferry ride across the channel.
Relax in the garden of the Augustinians in Barfleur, follow the cider trail in Beuvron-en-Auge or visit the Abbey of Notre Dame in Le Bec-Hellouin. Stop by the birthplace of composer Ravel at Lyons-la-Forêt, stroll the banks of the river Sarthe in Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei, or smell the sweet scent of the gardens of Veules-les-Roses.
Whatever you decide to do, there is so much to explore in the most beautiful villages of France.
