This issue is simply sizzling! As always, it’s chock full of fabulous features and fantastic photos. It never ceases to amaze me just how rich the history of France is – and even more so, just how many traces of the past remain, preserved in the many historic buildings in every town and village. In this issue we’ll delve into the past of some of the great chateaux of the Loire Valley – unbelievably pretty Ussé (think Sleeping Beauty), Villandry, and the royal castles of Loches and Chinon where Joan of Arc changed the course of France’s destiny. We’ll also plunge into Plantagenet history, and we’ll explore the extraordinary story of a postman who built a palace from pebbles with his bare hands. France also has an incredibly diverse landscape – we head south and explore beauties like gorgeous Sète, Aigues Mortes, Arles and more. Then north to follow the historic wine route of Alsace, back to the south to fall in love with glorious Vaucluse in Provence, where nature has a party in the spring. And we check out picturesque Perche in Normandy, explore Lyon and its surroundings, beautiful Brittany and charming les Charentes – Charente and Charente-Maritime. Foodies will love the history of St Honoré – the patron saint of bakers – and also a scrumptious cake. And we’re sharing some absolutely mouth-watering recipes so you can enjoy a taste of France at home. And there’s heaps more – from useful guides to top tours and what’s new in France. So, dive into this issue, and don’t forget to subscribe if you’re not already. The magazine is free (see page 4 to subscribe) so please share this issue with your friends – that’s free too! I wish you a very happy spring. Bisous from my little corner of France Janine Janine Marsh Editor Follow us on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook The Good Life France | 3
