Bournazel in Aveyron has been our home for 6 years. Aveyron was known as the lost departement, and even when we bought our house 12 years ago many French people didn’t know where you were talking about.
Aveyron is in the Midi Pyrenées and Bournazel is close to the border with the Lot. We came on a whim, and took a chance. We aren’t middle class or retired, we live an ordinary life. My husband and I work, my son goes to school. It is my plan in this blog to reflect our life in France, which given the above is not the same experience as is most usually written about.
I want to share our experiences, good and bad. The food, good and bad, and maybe give a bit of an insight for those who might do the same in the future.
