Most Charming Town in France

After wrote the Most Beautiful Town in Netherlands, now I’m going to share the Most Charming Town in France. Most of the time, we correlate Paris with France. However, France is not only having Paris, there are thousands of beautiful villages & small towns in the country and each region, has its own special qualities.

Travel to around some of the small towns in France means travel between hilltops, rocky coastal towns and breathtaking scenery while enjoying the local lifestyles of the people.

1. Ars-en-Ré

A charming town of bicycles! This is how most people describe Ars-en-Ré. With its white-washed houses and traditional green shutters, hollyhocks, salt pans, and relaxing but sleepy beach town, it is a pleasure to explore this tiny seafarer village.


2. Annecy

Sometimes referred to as “Little Venice”, Annecy is best for romantic couples.


3. Colmar

Hidden Gem of France. Colmar is full of brightly-colored houses, bright flower-lined canals, and a fairy tale-like atmosphere. You can take a canoe trip through the canals of Colmar.


4. Eguisheim

A charmingly picturesque village. It is a magnet for tourists & visitors because of its flower-filled villages and colorful houses, which give it a fairly tale ambient.


5. Moustiers Sainte-Marie

Moustiers-Ste-Marie sits below a narrow notch at the base of rocky cliffs. The village is full of charm with narrow streets and little squares to wander through.


6. Dinan

As well-preserved medieval town on a hilltop overseeing the river of Rance, Dinan is surrounded with long ramparts or walls, Tudor type houses, port, cobbled streets, art galleries, and shops.

Dinan is a well-preserved place with most of its old buildings, some of which were built during the 13th century, and most of its magnificent ramparts still in place.


7. Lourmarin

In the heart of Provence, Lourmarin is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in France. Lying between two valleys, the Durance one and the Calavon one, the village is located at the entrance to a pass dug out by a river.


8. Riquewihr

Famed for being the most beautiful town on the Alsatian Wine Route, the village’s colorful wooden houses have remained essentially untouched since the 16th century.



To step into this town is to be transported back to the Middle Ages. If you’re looking for a whimsical weekend full of farmers markets, antique stores and french pasteries, look no further.


10. Domfront

Such a picturesque town and you can have a lot of outdoor activities here, hiking, horseback riding, cycling & sightseeing.
