Beautifully set at the fringe of a 100m cliff above the River Lot, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie unequivocally deserves its listings among the most beautiful villages of France.

With its cream-coloured stones and rusty terracotta tiles is so full of charm it is easy to see why it gets so crowded in summer.

Saint-Cirq was located on the medieval Via Podiensis, one of France's four pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela, running from Le Puy-en-Velay to the Basque country. It is now part of the Causses du Quercy Regional Nature Park.
