Before I’d ever seen it, I fell in love  with France through its language and films.

The love affair was sealed on my first trip when I found myself in a Normandy farmhouse kitchen, sampling and buying Calvados from the elegant – and ancient – woman who made it.

I’ve been returning annually for years since, writing  for national newspapers, magazines and websites about everything from glamourous adventures in Provence to bargain shopping in Paris, Modernist architecture in Marseille and vinters using Roman recipes to make wine in the Bouches du Rhône. I’ve done features, round-ups, quick tips. And I will soon be issuing a freshly updated version of my Adventure Guide to Provence and the Côte d’Azur under my own e-book edition.
