Bonjour tout le monde from everyone at The Good Life France!
A big welcome to new subscribers and welcome back to everyone else.
We’ve had a very busy time here at The Good Life France offices – everyone in France seems to be talking about La Rentrée, the return to work, the return to school, the return to normal busy lives after the Summer break but we’ve been busy all the way through Summer (and that’s just how we like it!).
We’ve had some wonderful stories in from readers, we’ve interviewed famous authors and business owners with tales that have gone viral, we’ve got out and about and found things for you to do. We’ve bought you news that gives you a favour of France and we tell you what it’s like to live in France both in practical terms with our “Live in France” section and “My French House”, and through “My French Life” blog posts. Life in France can be a bit of a minefield financially for expats and we were really pleased to get an explanation from financial experts WhichOffshore about pension schemes for British expats and we’ll be expanding our financial section in the coming months.
As we like to keep on getting better – we’ve got absolutely loads lined up for you.
Interviews galore, real life reader experiences of moving to France, renovating, setting up a business – what’s good and what’s bad, how to avoid problems.
We’ll be introducing Denise Daniel and Doug Ibbs – they became stars in the UK when they were featured on UK TV for Channel 4’s Grand Designs series. Doug and Deni will be joining us later in the year to bring you a monthly post about life at their home in France running gites.
We’ll be working with Le French Book to promote … you guessed it … French books and offering you a chance to win some great prizes and we’ll be running a photo competition ourselves.
Our content changes daily and we hope that you’ve enjoyed The Good Life France. We’d love to hear from you – good, bad or otherwise.
In the meantime, I’m off to Alsace to do some research and to enjoy the sights in this lovely region of France,
Speak to you soon,
