Aubeterre sur Dronne

Aubeterre sur Dronne is on the route of Santiago de Compostella and is recognised officially as one of “les plus beaux villages de France“.

According to The Guardian:

The monolithic church of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, in the Charente region of south-west France, has to be one of the most beautiful and unusual churches in the world. Dating from the 12th century, it is carved into a chalk cliff and is the biggest underground church in France…The centre of the village…is full of rustic charm with steeply sloping cobbled streets.

Bizarrely, former Eastender Sid Owen (Ricky) is a cordon-bleu chef and ran a restaurant in Aubeterre.
