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.
In this Overseas Haven Report, we feature Sanur, Bali, Indonesia.
Consider Sanur if you like the thought of living by a pretty beach located on a gorgeous, world-renowned tropical island, enjoying easy access to fresh and organic foods, eating at great restaurants, making friends with the genuinely welcoming local people, and meeting plenty of like-minded foreigners who have become enchanted with the laid-back lifestyle that this town offers.
This Overseas Haven Report features the pretty mountain town of Pai in northwest Thailand. Pai is a peaceful spot, where lovers of organically grown food and alternative living can really flourish and live a quiet but complete life.
