Hi, I’m Annette. A bit about me… ¬†Newcastle is my home town and I’m passionate about France, all things French, travelling and writing. ¬†My awesome three kids and husband accept I’m an incorrigible Francophile and just join in!
Being true Francophiles and loving all things French, in 2009 we bought a family holiday home in a rural farming village deep in Brittany.
Since then, we have returned to spend school holidays in France, getting to know our rich and colourful neighbours, our local region and beyond. ¬†Not to mention the odd visit to Paris or two.
Right here with us you can:
- Learn French with our New French Word Everyday
- Get travel tips and ideas
- Find out what French activities are on around Australia and in France (what’s on)
- See great travel photos
- Admire French country homewares and decor
- Find mouthwatering recipes
- Read reviews of French art, books and films that we have seen or read.
We will also share our story of why, how and what. Why we bought the house, how we did it and what we do with it now. You will learn how you can too! Our site was born out of a desire to share our finds and experiences with fellow Francophiles.
