Most beautiful village in France 2013 - warning?

Jump to last reply

Last year one of the main television channels in France (France 2) started a program to elect the most beautiful village in France among the 22 regions of the country. Each candiate is presented and then the viewers vote for the best one.

Last year, the winner was Saint Cirq Lapopie and tourism there increased 50% over last year, which is not necessarily the most desirable thing except for the locals involved in the tourist industry.

This year's winner was selected last night -- Eguisheim in Alsace ( http://www.ot-eguisheim.fr/ ), so there should be a major increase in tourism there this summer. I'm sure that the villagers are quite proud, but I do not have the slightest idea if the local infrastructure will be adequate to handle the big increase in visitors.
