Ayzieu, Gers, France

Where does the world touch your heart? My answer to this powerful question lies in French village life and its rural culture.  

For some inexplicable reason my enchantment of all things French enticed me to move to the magical landscape of Gascony, in the Occitanie region in southwestern France, where I have been living for the past 11 years. It has been an endlessly rewarding adventure. Nine years ago I launched a monthly blog about living in France that is now read by Francophiles in over 80 countries, and I've written over a hundred articles for the internet magazine, Bonjour Paris, and I'm a contributor to the British magazine, France Today. It would be my pleasure to share my discoveries with fellow lovers of travel, art, history, cuisine and culture and to impassion you to learn about what makes SW France so unique on my enthusiastically guided tours of one of the most beautiful landscapes in France, relatively unknown except to insiders.

A Recent Review of this guide

Sue was delightful, listened to our requests and provided a great introduction to Lourdes - both the city and the sanctuary - on our first day there. She helped us with great information to plan the rest of our stay and fully partake in the spiritual experience.
