Welcome to the Good Life France Magazine Summer 2019 – totally free to read and utterly brilliant.
This is a free magazine, written by professional travel writers with a brief to tell it like it is and to seek out the best things to do and the secrets of the places they visit. It’s free to read online, download a PDF and to share, so if you like it, please help me to grow my audience and share the magazine with your friends and family. A subscriber wrote “this is like going on holiday to France, without leaving home”… Hopefully you’ll feel the same way!
In this issue read about the best things to see and do in Dijon in Burgundy and it’s secret places like a bar in an ancient deconsecrated church, plus the restaurants the locals love.
Discover sensational Strasbourg and find out what to do and see and its secret speakeasy. Plus probably the oldest wine store in the world where they have a bottle of wine dating to 1472!
Find out about Versailles and its opulent chateau, gorgeous gardens and lovely town. Visit Cognac in Charente, and Le Touquet, once the jet setters paradise in the north of France plus the nearby lovely Montreuil-sur-Mer, a tiny hill top town that’s making a name for itself in foodie circles.
Ian Moore, stand up comedian and author tells us what its really like to run a chambre d’hotes. Lucy Pitts explores Ardeche, the wild side of Provence and Michael Cranmer goes fishing with his feet – a national obsession in France!
We pay homage to the Cathedral of Notre-Dame with photos and comments posted by our friends on Facebook; down but not beaten, the “soul of Paris” will be rebuilt.
There are useful guides, real life expat stories including Billy and Gwendoline Petherick, stars of Escape to the Chateau DIY; and a fabulous recipe for scrumptious crème brulée.
There’s no paywall to read it and that won’t change, it’s free and it always will be. You don’t have to subscribe, if the box pops up and you’re not sure you want to subscribe until you’ve read how good it it, just click the X…
With best wishes from France
