This is by far the best news ever for us here in Cotignac. The village has been nominated (one of 14) to participate in the competition “Le Village Préféré des Français 2019”, presented by the celebrity Stéphane Bern and due to air in June. Anyone in the world can vote and the village with the most votes will win the prestigious prize of having excellent publicity and exposure on France’s TV channel 3. This could mean a huge boost in economy, morale, and for me: a culmination and reward for all the work I have done to promote this village the last 9 years. So we would love for you to help us win. You have until the 21st of March to vote!!

Thank you for helping us help our village in its effort to place itself on the global map of wonderful touristic sights to visit as well as a great place to live.
