    Thumbs up The French vote for France's most beautiful villages



    A few weeks ago, France 2, the leading public TV channel in France, held a special programme called Le village préféré des Français (The favourite village of French people). The audience was asked to elect their favourite village in each of France's 22 regions. The villages were then ranked against each others, in a nationwide top 22 most beautiful villages. 66,000 people voted. Here is the final ranking:

    1. Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, Midi-Pyrénées
    2. Saint-Guilhelm-le-Désert, Languedoc-Roussillon
    3. Barfleur, Basse Normandie

    5. Yvoire, Rhône-Alpes
    6. Riquewhir, Alsace
    7. Beynac-et-Cazenac, Aquitaine
    8. Les Baux-de-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'azur

    13. Saint-Suliac, Bretagne

    Thanks for listing, Maciamo, I will keep that in mind when I next travel to France. I had the opportunity to see St Cirq from the Lot, as I went down on a kayak, the view is stunning, no wonder it's a favourite in France. I visited Beynac, it's an amazing place. The castle, where Luc Besson's "Joan of Arc " was shot, was well worth the trip.
