ASSOCIATION DES PLUS BEAUX VILLAGES
Angles-sur-l’Anglin is a member of the Association des Plus Beaux Villages de France. There are currently 153 plus beaux villages in France and only seven of the villages are in Poitou-Charentes. There are three essential ‘entry’ qualifications for would-be candidates: • the village must have fewer than 2,000 inhabitants • there must be at least two ‘listed’ sites • the application must be supported by the town council
The selection is extremely rigorous and only one in five applicants is accepted. Membership is not for life as villages are inspected about every seven or eight years and can be excluded if they don’t come up to scratch. This means that the total number of villages can change from year to year.
If you want to visit a plus beau village and are looking for accommodation you can now book it via the website: les-plus-beaux-villages-de-france.org
