Mirmande, village in Drôme

Tieno's pick

An adorable little 'village perché' looking across to the hills of the Val de Drôme, Mirmande is officially recognised as 'One of the Most Beautiful Villages in France'. The warm colours of the limestone houses built in a staggered jumble up the hillside, the quaint old roof tiles, the decorative-pebble pavements… all softened by the abundant vegetation. I'm a sculptor; I discovered Mirmande at sunset on a winter afternoon, and I was immediately smitten.
