Bienvenue Bonjour and bienvenue to The Good Life France magazine Spring 2022 issue, and I’m absolutely delighted to be back with the magazine after a little break and with travel opening up again. I’ve been busy behind the scenes with a new book out this year (Toujours la France!) and we’ve moved the magazine onto a new whizzy platform and our new designer Philippa has made it look even more beautiful than ever I hope you’ll agree. I know many of you will be dreaming of, and planning to visit France, so I hope that you will find this edition inspirational and the cause of daydreams! Before I get started – a massive thank you to all the sponsors who’ve made this issue possible, you’ll spot their adverts throughout and I promise you this, they are the best! This issue is going to seriously tempt your taste buds with the most delicious pastry recipes from the famous Le Nôtre bakery in Paris. And talking of Paris – our gorgeous photos of the City of Love and Light in the spring will definitely make you want to come and sit under a Parisian cherry tree. Explore the wonderful, historic city of Metz in Alsace in the north-east, the mouth-watering markets of Caen in Normandy and the extraordinary town of Saint-Omer in the north of France, which has so many ancient and secret places it is mind-boggling. Discover the lost monuments of Paris, stunning alpine Evian, Avignon astounding UNESCO listed sites, unmissable Provence – and much more. I hope I’ve tempted you to flip every page of this issue, so I’ll let you go now, and enjoy the fabulous articles and stunning photos.
