Autoire, France
Listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France, Autoire was once a favourite country retreat of the French aristocracy.

Autoire, France
The village isn't very large - a 'main street' through the centre and a small road that winds up the steep hill behind the village - but it is pretty close to perfect, with a lovely mix of houses and buildings around the central square and fountain, and a small church.

Autoire, France
The village is best visited in spring, when it has a widespread reputation for the flowers that fill the streets and gardens.
