Les Plus Beaux Villages de France

from Wikipedia

Quote:
Les Plus Beaux Villages de France ("The most beautiful villages of France") is an independent association, created in 1982, that aims to promote small and picturesque French villages of quality heritage. As of 2008, 152 villages in France have been labelled as the "Plus Beaux Villages de France".
There are a few criteria before entering the association: the population of the village must not exceed 2,000 inhabitants, there must be at least 2 protected areas (picturesque or legendary sites, or sites of scientific, artistic or historic interest), and the decision to apply must be taken by the town council.
In this thread, I will present all 152 villages over time. I'm the only one who can post images of the villages but anyone else is welcome to comment.

Good thread

Alsace is an amazing region of France where Germanic traits remain in the culture, such as the cuisine and architecture because historically was part of the Holy Roman Empire.
