San­dra Hau­rant

France - - Bienvenue -

Bri­tish free­lance writer San­dra lives in France with her French hus­band and their three chil­dren. She moved there in 2010 af­ter eight years as a Guardian jour­nal­ist, and since then has been writ­ing on French cul­ture, food, lifestyle and travel from her home near Toulouse. On page 44, San­dra vis­its some evoca­tive ceme­ter­ies.

“One of my favourite places in France is the Île de Noir­moutier in Vendée. I first vis­ited the is­land al­most 20 years ago, and re­turn with the chil­dren when­ever I can. Its sandy coves, backed with lit­tle beach huts, shel­tered by pine trees and over­look­ing the At­lantic, make it a beau­ti­ful place for fam­ily hol­i­days.”
