I found this must read article in Conde Nast Traveler about fairy-tale villages around the world. The picture above is of the hotel Auberge du Sombral, in St-Cirq Lapopie. It is such a charming hotel and the medieval village of St-Cirq Lapopie is pictured below.
According to Conde Nast Traveler, the pictures above and below are of Italy's Civita di Bagnoregio which is an hour and a half north of Rome and occupies a plateau 1,440 feet above sea level that is steadily eroding.
What a dream it would be to see these villages in person!
