These are the most beautiful villages in the world

As much as we love city life, sometimes you just dream of getting away from it all.

And in our dreams, this is where we’d live.

From colourful townhouses perched on the edge of cliffs over the Mediterranean, to tiny rural villages nestled in the shadow of mount Fuji.

They may look like they’re straight out of a Tolkien novel, but these places are real and you can go there.
