It is in the farming village of Nadal, a lieu-dit some six kilometers east of Lacapelle-Marival, and eighteen kilometers north of Figeac. The name "Nadal'' means "NoŽl'' in Occitan, the local patois.
The joys of French country life abound in Nadal and in the region around it---peace and quiet, natural beauty, good food, friendly neighbors, and the soul of what the French call "old stones.'' There are castles, vineyards, villages, and even the remains of lost civilizations to explore. This part of southwestern France is an endlessly fascinating nexus of nature, prehistory, and history.
