One of the great pleasures of living in this area of France is having so many beautiful villages around us and its great to take time out of our renovations to explore some of them, even when the weather is not nice, in fact it’s quite magical to see some of the villages and towns in the winter with the rain and mists.
This week we have been out and about as our friend Rachel is visiting which gives us a great excuse to down tools and explore.
So we headed for the Aveyron to visit Najac which is a medieval town which is very high up as most medieval villages are. Its surrounded by lush forests and has amazing views across the valley.
Here are some snapshots that both Rachel and i took which we have merged together.

Our new toy, even Barnaby Pickles wants to use it…….
Albi is our nearest city and a Unesco world heritage site, it also has the worlds biggest brick built cathedral in the world.
We visited and fell in love with this city last year whilst on holiday in the area, now since living here we have visited many times and as usual i have had my camera at the ready as there are so many photo opportunities to be had.
So here are a collection of snaps i have taken over the last three visits.
Im a sucker for doors and door furniture and could happily snap away for hours especially when there are so many amazing examples in this city
Another of my favourite things is ‘ghost signs’ faded examples of fabulous signage, in my opinion even better looking now with age.

I know it’s nearly November, but as you will know from my earlier posts the weather here has been amazing and our garden has been giving us so many gifts, figs, pears, apples, almonds, walnuts, late summer daisies and conckers which means its definitely autumn even if it still feels like summer.
