Agen : Michelin's recommendations
This quintessentially Southern town has an ambience of carefree goodwill, and why not, given that it is officially “the happiest town in France”?

The town is far from sleepy, however, and is especially lively during the last weekend of August when its renowned prune festival takes place.
