Montresor, One of the Most Beautiful Villages in the Loire Valley

Small but beautiful villages are a special category in France. They have banded together to have their own co-operative marketing and website and are officially designated as les plus beaux villages de France (the most beautiful villages in France). They are all quite tiny as one of the requirements is to have a population of less than 200 people. All of them are well worth visiting, full of stunning views and thousands of photo opportunities.

The nearest one to us is Montrésor, featuring a large castle on top of a rocky outcrop right in the middle of the village, a beautiful Renaissance church and a very good restaurant. What more could you want? But there is more! Walk around town and along the river bank and you will see all sorts of beautiful and quirky things. A visit here is a real treat, and we would be happy to include it in your personalised itinerary if you request it. We are sure you will love it!
