Founder of an innovative concept around the legendary convertible cars: Citroën Deux- Chevaux, 4 roues sous 1 parapluie was launched in Paris in 2003. 4 roues sous 1 parapluie offers a wide range of services where passengers will be charmed and delighted in the 2CV tours while discovering the true art French way of living.



The association includes 157 villages spread over 21 regions and 69 departments. It aims to avoid certain pitfalls such as villages turning into soulless museums or, on the contrary, «theme parks». The well-reasoned and passionate ambition is to reconcile villages with the future and to restore life around the fountain or in the square shaded by hundred year-old lime and plane trees. Since its inception, the association «Les Plus Beaux Villages de France ®» has firmly established its strategy around these three points: to preserve and enhance the quality of the heritage in the villages so as to increase their reputation while controlling the number of visitors and consequently fostering the development of economic activity linked to tourism.
