About Mignaval

Mignaval has been our permanent home in France since January 2008 and is in the commune of St Martin des Olmes, about 6 km to the east of Ambert.

We are in Department 63, Puy de Dôme, in the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.

Our house is at approximately 800 m (2600 ft) altitude, on the west slopes of the Monts du Forez, in the Parc Naturel Régional du Livradois Forez.

About this blog

This is where we keep most of our photos, about 20000 at present.

The photos are a reminder of the journeys and holidays we have had but the albums also include many ‘everyday’ photos of our daily life.
