When I read about Les Plus Beaux Villages De France (the most beautiful villages of France) I was intrigued. France is pretty beautiful at the best of times, but it seems they have selected the cutest little chocolate-box villages to promote for tourism. We visited Beuvron en Auge in Northern France.
We had to take a real detour to get there through country roads, but were really glad we made it. And to our surprise there were a dozen other tourists there too, but luckily it was still an unspoilt quiet village.
We bought a delicious almond croissant from a local bakery and sat in the sunshine munching it. It was a lovely stop on our road trip!
Earlier we also stopped into the spectacular Basilique Saint-Therese, in Lisieux. It is a rather imposing structure on a hill so you can’t miss it while driving past Lisiuex.

Argh, there are soooooo many cute places in France that I want to visit! This is another one to add to the list haha. And in Germany, too!
I know! I hope you get to go there 🙂
