Hi Stewart,

Yes indeed as Ron says, the rules will be the same for towns and villages.

You will use 'à ' or in the case of masculine names ´auand 

'aux' for plural names.

Just a few examples of these: 

j'habite  à Gordes, j'habite au Chesnay ( Le Chesnay ), j'habite au Pecq (Le Pecq) , j'habite aux Baux de Provence (les Baux de Provence)...

Hope this helps!

Bonjour Stewart, In a word, yes; the same rule applies for cities, towns and villages. This is a basic structure to discuss where one lives. As you progress, there will be other locales, i.e. regions, departments, etc. where the preposition changes. This lesson here is at the A0 level, hence the basic : J'habite à. . . structure. When one gets into the A1 level, you will find a different structure for stating certain areas where one lives. J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait.
