The smallest municipality in France

Castelmoron-d'Albret is a commune in the Gironde department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in south-western France. It is notable for being the smallest commune in France by size, with an area of just 3.54 hectares, roughly the size of the Place Charles de Gaulle in Paris.

It is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers, fifty kilometers from Bordeaux

The medieval town is brimming with charm and beauty with old houses covered with eclectic pots filled with colorful flowers. No house is the same, every window, shutter, and door is unique and will make you stop and admire the beauty.

Castelmoron, d'Albret

There are almost no signs of modern life here, no cars, no sidewalks, just flowers, and pure charm.


From the top of the headlands of the city, it also enjoys a stunning view of the surrounding landscape and the famous vineyards of the Gironde.
