Coeurs villageois

“Cœurs villageois” is made up of 11 emblematic small towns and cities highlighting all the beautiful features of our region. They attract by their personality, their exclusive assets and their tempting epicurean offer. The “Coeur villageois” designation is worn by the people who live here and who have worked hard to meet the criteria required to receive this recognition.
