The Midi-Pyrenees / Aveyron region
Only recently easily accessible by air links and the new A20 motorway, Aveyron has been described as one of the last secret areas of France and Occitan is still spoken by many. The Aveyron has 10 of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France" (the most beautiful villages in France), more than any other department.
The major rivers of Lot, Aveyron and Tarn each have stunning gorges and now the world's highest viaduct bridge which spans the river Tarn at Millau has really helped put the region on the map.
Our SW corner of the Aveyron is an undiscovered delight. The area is heavily forested with oak and chestnut and full of river valleys which keep the region green even in high summer. The rivers are unpolluted and great for swimming. Medieval villages and towns abound but traffic jams and crowds are scarce even in August. The pace of life is slow and traditional markets still play an important part in this rural region as does gastronomy - cheeses from Roquefort, Rocamador, and Laguiole; wines from Gaillac, Cahors and Marcillac; locally produced pate du fois gras and saucisson. Plenty of good local restaurants including Michelin starred.
The La Fouillade area
La Fouillade is a bustling village with great shops - artisan bakers and butchers, grocers, pharmacy and small supermarket. It also has 2 cafes, 2 doctors, a bank and post office.

Medieval towns within an hour's drive include: Najac, Villefranche de Rouergue, Cordes-sur-Ciel, St Antonin-Noble-Val, Belcastel, Figeac, Cahors. Also, Albi and Conques - both classed as World Heritage Sites.
