Land Of 100 Valleys
This is also called the land of the 100 valleys. This is a rural area with spectacular, unspoilt countryside dotted with thick stone-walled 17th- to 19th century cottages, barns and farms which have been fully or partially restored or are still waiting to be converted. These houses are made of sandstone or schist. Roofs are made of both tiles (south and west) and slates (north and east). Dermot and Jan Conway have been living in this area for 20 years say what they love the most about this area is the landscape with its rolling hills and rivers. Monesties (one of the most beautiful villages in France), Salles-sur-Cerou, some hamlets around Mirandol and Montirat are all popular with the foreign buyer who have restored many run-down stone farms.
