Perched on an inaccessible mountainside, hidden among green hills, or clustered around a medieval castle: some of the most beautiful French villages remain unknown to tourists. Take a pictorial journey through quaint corners of tiny hamlets, breathtaking countryside, and colorful, old fashioned markets where the locals exchange goods and gossip. Glorious color photographs show the dramatically rocky seacoast in Plougrescant, Brittany, along with the "tipsy," crooked walls and spire of the town church. In the Loire Valley, ancient forts and castles stand firm by the river, and in Poiteven, "le Venise Verte" (the green Venice), steps descend from houses directly to the water-and waiting rowboats. These, and many more picture-postcard locales, will entrance you...and help you plan your next trip to France.
