In the Haute-Loire
One of the best travel tips I can offer is to journey from one Plus Beau Village de France to another and to plan to stay in local bed and breakfasts, called chambres d'hôtes--and often--de charme. Such an itinerary will necessarily lead you to extraordinary out of the way places, like the medieval benedictine Abbaye de Lavaudieu, of which its restored romanesque cloister is the sole entirely intact remaining in the Auvergne region. A treasure trove which includes not only these fascinating sculpted columns but an important 12th century mural in its refectory.
