Description:
Les Plus Beaux Villages de France ("The most beautiful villages of France") is an independent association, created in 1982, which aims to promote assets of small and picturesque French villages of quality heritage. As of 2008, 152 villages in France have been labelled as the "Plus Beaux Villages de France".

Similar associations have been set up in Belgium (Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie), Quebec (Les Plus Beaux Villages du Qu├ębec) and Italy (I Borghi Piu Belli d'Italia).
