In this Overseas Haven Report we feature the region of Béarn, France.
Béarn, France is home to the French towns of Nay and Morlaas. They are a good size; not too big or too small. We’ve found them both very welcoming, both have every facility and service you need, both have an interesting historical center, and both set in beautiful, though different, countryside.
With so much on offer around the Béarn region, we found it difficult to recommend any single town, but finally settled on two, Nay and Morlaas.
Describing the history of beret-making in the French town of Nay (sometimes called “Little Manchester”), writer Lucy Culpepper is careful to point out that Nay is “no dirty industrial town.” It seems the French never compromised on style, even through peak production. Nay is just one of the many attractive towns and villages dotted around France’s Béarn region, the focus of this report.
This Overseas Haven Report features one of Kathleen Peddicord’s favorite parts of the world, Paris, and specifically one of the most sought after locales in Paris, the Marais. It’s a location that’s not low cost, for sure, but once you get stuck into Parisian living, (and you’ve survived the sticker-shock of the cost of renting or buying) it’s not as expensive as you may think.

Tagaytay sits atop a ridge that runs along the north side of beautiful Taal Lake and the Taal Volcano. Although it is only about an hour’s drive from the sprawling metropolis of Manila, there is nothing urban about Tagaytay. It’s a small mountain resort town surrounded by breath-taking scenery.
This Overseas Haven Report features San Salvador, the capital city of El Salvador. The city is the center of commerce, culture, and education for the country, and is one Central America’s largest urban centers.
