Les Plus Beaux Villages de France – The Most Beautiful Villages in France
Saturday 22nd April 2017 and ‘Day 4′ of our travels.
A little bit of background on Monestiés:
Monestiés is located in the Tarn Département of the Midi-Pyrénées in Southern France. It’s 15 km east of Cordes-sur-Ciel and approximately 22 km north of Albi.
It’s a small village but it’s classed as one of the ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de France and our next stop after Cordes-sur-Ciel.
Our visit to Monestiés was very brief but we got to enjoy a quick coffee sat under a young Wisteria vine before buying bread for the journey to our next lodgings in St-Geniez d’Olt.
Though very small, there were a wealth of various architectural styles in evidence and not one but two beautiful churches to admire.
It was not until we were on the road again that we were to realise that we had actually only seen a small part of everything this village had to offer, as the village was actually split in two by the main road. Ah well … maybe next time …
