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 the Caribbean island of Roatan, one of the Bay Islands just off the coast of Honduras.
It’s a small island but it packs a punch when it comes to things to do, especially if your main interests are water related. (The island was recently ranked “Best Dive Site” by Scuba Diving Magazine.) The blend of nations that has formed this island’s population makes for an easy transition to overseas retirement.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico | Overseas Haven Report
In this Overseas Haven Report, we feature San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
San Miguel de Allende has the small-town friendliness and hominess that most expats crave, set in a remarkably beautiful and sociable colonial town. Centrally located in Mexico, San Miguel is a good base for exploration of the country in all four directions.
In a golden corner of Panama’s Azuero Peninsula sits the town of Pedasí. It’s a town with a village atmosphere—large enough to feel like you can live there, yet small enough to make you feel like an active stakeholder in a thriving community.
