The most beautiful villages in Provence

Les Plus Beaux Villages de Provence
Plus Beaux Villages de France
Les Plus Beaux Villages de France is an independent association founded in 1982 to create a national network of those villages in France that have natural heritage or exceptional architecture and are located in the rural countryside. The idea is to preserve and promote these 149 villages often overlooked by tourists.

A village must meet the following criteria in order to be considered for membership in the association: a population of no more than 2000 and at least two classified sites of scientific, artistic or historic interest.

Below is a list of the most beautiful villages in Provence. There are of course numerous other noteworthy villages in the region, but these are unquestionably some of the most picturesque and splendid of places, without a doubt each worth the visit.
