France’s favourite village
Known to the general public thanks to the TV show, “Le village préféré des Français”, this village was voted in first place in 2016! There is something for everyone!
Nature lovers can discover more than three kilometres of flower-filled lanes, the breathtaking view of the Loire and even sailing on a traditional boat;
Lovers of religious history can discover the collegiate church of Saint-Martin, which gives its name to the village. It is in Candes-Saint-Martin that the famous “cape” of Saint Martin de Tours has long been exhibited, the man who cut his cloak in two to share it with a destitute man and former bishop of Tours, the capital of the city;
