14 entries for 2018's Village préféré des Français

Kaysersberg was named Le village préféré des Français in 2017

The 14 entries for the seventh annual contest to find Le village préféré des Français have been unveiled - with villages from all 13 metropolitan regions and one from La Réunion vying for the title won last year by Kaysersberg, in Alsace.

The popular France 2 programme is presented, as usual, by Stéphane Bern, who looks at the heritage, gastronomy, crafts and conviviality that mark out each of the villages, as they compete for the title.
