Issue No.

Bonjour and welcome to the latest edition of The Good Life France Magazine. As I write this, France is still on a virtual lockdown and people can’t travel here to enjoy its many charms from historic cities to pretty villages and the wonderful gastronomy. And we’re still not sure when things will be back to normal. The hospitality business is suffering terribly and everyone is hoping that things will get better soon and we can welcome back our family, friends and much valued visitors. In the meantime, we’re hoping to keep your France dreams alive and this issue covers gorgeous Annecy in Haute-Savoie, Brocélliande – Merlin’s Forest in Brittany and a corner of bucolic paradise close to Paris – the lovely Vallée de Chevreuse. Provence lovers will adore our 4 Seasons of Provence feature, a photographic essay that had me dreaming of packing a bag and heading straight to the south of France from my little pigsty office in rural northern France. The sunny city of Pau, the beautiful Basque region, Canal du Midi and the French Riviera are also featured. And I hope that these articles bring back happy memories or help you plan a trip in the future for that happy day when we can travel again. There are loads of luscious recipes and we take a look at the gastronomy of Touraine in the Loire Valley in the shadow of some of the greatest castles ever created. And for those who live in France or want to live in France – there’s plenty of inspiration in the practical section. Something for every Francophile. You’ll find me every day on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and I love to chat to you there. And every week I send out a newsletter, weekly whimsies someone called them. Feel free to join me for your French fix. Wishing you and yours well. Bisous from France, Janine Editor
