    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A very unspoilt area of France close to the Spanish border once part of the old Salt Road . We are English living very much in a non English speaking region but do have English friends. Lots of history . As we have had large groups staying with us in the past we have learned so much of the history here. We are also on the Camino de Santiago and have many pilgrims here.
