Beautiful villages (recognised as ‘villages de caractère’)

Beautiful villages (recognised as ‘villages de caractère’)

In 1996, the classification ‘Village de caractère’ was introduced as a way to protect and promote the most picturesque villages in Ardèche. It is awarded to villages that seek to preserve and showcase their natural heritage and architecture; to share their traditions and time-honoured skills with the public; and to establish a tourist offer that reflects the values of the Ardèche region.

 

There are 3 types of criteria to fulfil in order gain  ‘Village de caractère’ status:

  • Criteria relating to the quality of the area
  • Criteria relating to the quality of the village
  • Criteria relating to the tourist welcome and to the socio-economic dynamic of the village.
