We offer you to visit villages we have chosen for their heritage and history, but also for the quality of the local decisions to rehabilitate the architectural, and to create some pedestrians walking areas.
Preservation of typical natural environnements and the share of rural practices deserves some of our national Labels such as « Les plus Beaux détours de France », « Les Rubans du Patrimoine », «Villes et Pays d’Art et d’Histoire de France»
