Why Do I Love France?

Why do I love France? That’s a question I’m asked by those who wonder why, after four years, I’m still here.

A French Collection asked five bloggers who write about France, including moi, “Why do you love France?” After reading each response, perhaps you’ll understand how we feel and why we’re so anxious to share this wonderful place with the world.

Why do you love France? 

Maybe it’s the romantic appeal of beautiful towns and villages, the proud French people and their traditions, mouth-watering food, historical buildings and gardens,  priceless art or diverse landscapes?  Or maybe its simply the appeal of sunshine, long lunches and a carefree life.

Everyone’s love affair with France starts differently and to showcase that I asked my five favourite French bloggers/writers to share with us what they love most about France and how they share their passion with others.  You’ll see they share their love of France through publishing magazines, writing books, leading tour groups, running gîtes and online shops.  Each story is different and engaging.

You will be fascinated at how their love affair of France has changed their work and personal lives.  So let’s meet them and read what each has to say

Love france

  1. I agree with everything you & the other bloggers write. After all, I have been coming here since I was sixteen & I’m now lucky enough to have a house here. However, I would add that France isn’t perfect!! I know people who have come to France to escape personal problems & unfortunately, the problems follow them. I’ve always admired your courage in leaving the States and coming to France, especially with a limited amount of French! I think you are an excellent example to women in their sixties. Oui in France always writes candidly about the reality of living in France! Of course, this could be the case with any country but I only have experience of living in the UK & France! Bisous 😘

    • I totally agree with you, June. Moving to another part of the world may seem like a way to escape, but you can’t expect your troubles to disappear by running away. I feel very blessed to have been in a good place in my life and it keeps getting better. I really appreciate you comment on A French Collection and the compliment. I’m looking forward to meeting you whenever we’re both in France. 💕

  2. It seems like a no-brainer to me. Anyone who’s ever visited the France–world’s top tourist destination–would be able to compile a lengthy list. 🙂

    • Isn’t that the truth! I’m just hoping not everyone moves to France…but I wouldn’t blame them❤️🇫🇷
