    I’m not quite sure who decides these things, but Montresor was certainly very lovely. Given this accolade, I expected it to be heaving with tourists, but it was remarkably quiet. I got a bit lost enroute (satnav went rogue), but I think it is about half an hour from Chedigny and definitely worth visiting while in the area. It has all the requirements of a picturesque French village – chateau, including some ruins, gently flowing river, immaculate allotments, flowers,  faded paintwork, and ancient market hall with a small market in progress. http://www.tourisme-valdindrois-montresor.com/
