As most of you will know, we are based in Burgundy. There is so much to see in this beautiful, world renowned area that we are never quite sure where to start when making suggestions of what you should see locally. We are working on some new web pages to show the highlights of our area and will let you know as soon as they are live. In the meantime, the following news caught our eye and might provide good inspiration for planning your trip.

There is an organisation here in France that was created specifically to shine a spotlight on the most beautiful villages in France, and encourage tourists to visit them. “Les Plus Beaux Villages des France” are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year and have published an updated map in conjunction with Michelin. So, you can easily find the prettiest villages in France without the need for recommendations or research.

…and between the beautiful villages in Burgundy you’ll pass through pretty countryside like this at Saint-Julien-du-Sault

You can also get all this information on the Les Plus Beaux Villages des France website. The French version of the site is more comprehensive than the English version, but we are sure the English one will catch up soon! Here are some links to help you plan your trip, and learn more about each of the 156 prettiest villages listed in France:

Planning a trip in Burgundy to take in these villages and travelling the back roads between them will make for a wonderful route. If you fancy adding in some other Burgundy attractions and perhaps some wine trails too, these sites will help you plan:

You could easily take a couple of weeks to fully explore Burgundy, but if you want to fit in more, or take longer and explore another region with pretty French villages, our neighbouring region of the Loire Valley has lots to offer too.

If you have a much longer trip planned, why not make it your mission to explore all 156 of the prettiest villages of France!?
