Gluges, The Lot, France

A partially-abandoned village on the banks of the Dordogne, Gluges nestles below some crumbling old houses built into the face of an looming cliff. There is also a striking church, with a soaring bell tower and windows funded by Edith Piaf, some fine stone houses with steep pitched red-tiled roofs, a campsite and a pleasant spot where you can paddle in the river or hire a canoe.
