Najac

One of les plus beaux villages de France, Najac in the early morning is a magical place, with the ruins of its castle rising above the mist that hides the bastide village, and 200 metres below, the Aveyron River.

The village has a “Fouace” festival in August - the fouace is a sort of brioche or sweet bread. Two or three huge ornately plaited fouaces, decorated with flowers, and weighing 80 kilograms each, are paraded through the streets before being eaten at a communal feast.

At Easter, the local children go on an Easter Egg hunt with a difference - they go from house to house collecting fresh eggs, which are made into a sweet omelette and eaten by them at the end of the day.
