Gary & Jane

If you would like to explore a small, rural pocket of southwest France with a group of only six, then we invite you to Stringalong!

Our adopted home base village is the beautiful, medieval town of Saint Antonin Noble-Val on the Aveyron River.

We explore this region, as well as The Lot and north to the Dordogne, in a very relaxed, unhurried manner. Always time to get to know a place and chat to the locals in the markets, eat lovely food & sample local wine of course!

Relax! We'll do the planning and the driving!

Stringalong was designed to introduce you to all the great things about our French lifestyle- hunting for antiques in village markets for our shop "gravitas," history, art, architecture, local food, wine & culture, beautiful landscape & wonderful friends!

Please join us to share in this uniquely personal experience!
