Bon weekend from the wild west of France

Every day I walk the dogs around the hills and dales that make up the Seven Valleys where I live. On account of the fact that I am able to resist anything but temptation in the form of cakes, wine, cheese, bread, chocolate and a few more things, I’ve had to up my exercise this […]

Bon weekend from the top website about France

Hope you had a good week. This time last week I was walking my legs off in Versailles. Mon Dieu it is a huge chateau and grounds. This time of the year it’s relatively quiet and uncrowded, though the beautiful warm weather made sure that the gardens were filled with families out enjoying the sun. […]

French bread, a car rally and cossetted cats newsletter

Bonjour, Hope you had a great week. As I write this the Le Touquet car rally is going on outside. It’s an annual event which apparently kickstarts the rally season in France. It also shakes my pigsty/office, as what sounds like hundreds of drivers fling their cars down our little rue and round hairpin bends […]

Bon Weekend from a sunny spring-like courtyard in France

Bonjour, Hope you had a great week. Spring really seems to have arrived this week in my bit of rural France. There are buds on trees, a green haze over the forests, birds are returning and trilling out a beautiful chorus from the rooftops and bushes, the cats are lying in the sun in the […]

Bon weekend from Paris…

Bonjour, Hope you had a great week. This week I’ve been in Paris and what a time I’ve had – totally and utterly spoiled, and not only because I didn’t have to get up and feed chickens, ducks and geese, walk the dogs or provide maid service for the cats! I’ve been working on an […]

Bon weekend from the best website about France!

Bonjour, Hope you had a great week. I’m sitting in my pigsty office, where it’s toasty warm (it’s a tiny room so it’s easy to heat up!) looking at the pansies growing in my vertical wall garden in the courtyard. They’re still flowering even though they’re covered in snow. Actually, everything is covered in snow […]
