This is our middle of nowhere in the Hautes Pyrénées where we spent a couple of days perched on a mountain side with cows for neighbours. The cheese was amazing as was the honey - all bought from local producers.
The other neighbour, the owner of the cows, single, 50 ish and still living with his mother didn't seem too optimistic about the future - apart from being the ideal candidate for 'The Farmer needs a Wife' you sometimes wonder how this type of farming continues to survive but it is what makes La France Profonde profonde.

The hills were very much alive (mainly with cows and sheep) and the views very Julie Andrews. Perhaps it is the middle of somewhere!
