Bonjour and welcome to

Bonjour and welcome to the autumn issue of The Good Life France Magazine. It's a lovely time of the year in France, mellow sunshine, spectacular sunsets, a feeling of joie de vivre as France goes through the unique experience known as la rentrée in September, the return to normality, to work and school after the long holidays. In this issue we start two new series: Le Weekend - a look at fabulous weekend destinations and the best things to do in a short visit. We start with stunning Isle-surla-Sorgue in Provence, the antiques capital of France. The second series is Du pain, Du vin, Du train: where to go by train from Paris. Many people visit the city and never see the rest of France. Paris is of course brilliant, but you can take a day trip by train and get a totally different experience of France. Discover Gascony with our insider’s guide, this sunny part of France is authentic and truly beautiful. Visit five stunning chateaux in the Loire, and meet a legendary florist at the Chateau de Chenonceau. Take a look at magnificent Montpellier, Paris in the autumn, Grignan, a tiny town in Provence that has a Versailles-style chateau and Toulouse. Ever fancied staying in a mountain refuge in the mountains? Rread what it’s like plus, find out what happens when you go skiing with your dogs in France! We meet a man with a passion for cheese who discovered his long-lost cheese love in the Auvergne and share the tale of an American who has Paris in her soul in a brilliant short memoire. Competitions, Your Photos, practical guides, Ask the Experts, expat stories and lush recipes – yep this a bumper, brilliant issue! Please share it with your friends if you like it – it’s totally free, forever! with best wishes, Bisous from France Janine Editor
