Bonjour! Two years ago I

Bonjour! Two years ago I started this magazine as a way to share the France I know and love and, thanks to so many people sharing it with friends - it's grown beyond my wildest dreams. So my first message is a huge THANK YOU to every one of you, for reading, subscribing and sharing this magazine. To celebrate this milestone birthday, we have a fabulous 12 days of Christmas contest where we showcase some wonderful French flavour gifts and give them away. From personalised luggage to designer bags, vines in iconic French vineyards, caviar, language lessons, goodies from Paris, brilliant books and more... Talking of books, in this issue you'll find the best book nooks in Paris, places where you can browse with a little extra something - a café, art gallery or unique ambience - or all three! And, on the theme of Christmas gifts, take a look at the best places to shop in Paris plus a very authentic and charming French Christmas market in the north of France. There are some delicious recipes for you to try including one from Pierre Hermé, one of France's most renowned bakers, as he shares his chocolate macarons with you. Meet cheese makers from the Haute-Savoie, discover how to make a toast the French way and find out what makes Flaine in the French Alps the perfect family ski destination. Once again there's an enchanting chateau to get to know, Brissac is said to be the most haunted in France, it's also the poshest B&B ever! There's a new section in this issue "Your Photos" which has come from our popular "your photos weekend" on Facebook. There are features from Provence, the French Riviera, Paris, Carcassonne, Aquitaine; and expat stories to inspire you plus expert advice for those who want to be expats in France. Curl up, enjoy this latest issue of The Good Life France, and if you like it, I'd love you to share it with your friends so they can enjoy it too! Bisous from France, Janine Editor
