St Jean-de-Cole

Just a 30 minute drive away, St Jean-de-Cole is one of the most beautiful villages in France. It is part of a network of similar places linked by a scheme called “les plus beaux villages de France”.

The buildings are beautifully preserved and date back to the 11th century. The lovely tiled roofs once won the “finest roofs in France” competition. The church is utterly lovely.

The River Cole runs through the village, and the view of the main square from one of the pretty stone bridges makes this really worth a visit.
