Your views of life in France

We just wanted to drop you a note to say how thrilled we were when our Au­tumn edi­tion of Liv­ing France (fea­tur­ing Ardèche) dropped through our let­ter box three days be­fore we set off for the area on a two-week hol­i­day.

Your ‘not to be missed’ rec­om­men­da­tion of the Bois de Païo­live was an ab­so­lute hid­den gem. There was noth­ing ad­ver­tis­ing it lo­cally and it took some ef­fort to find it (we should have known bet­ter than to trust our sat­nav), but it was def­i­nitely worth the hunt.

The 4km Cir­cuit de la Cor­niche pro­vided breath­tak­ing views over the Chas­sezac gorge ( pic­tured) and was a real high­light of our hol­i­day, topped only by the meal we chanced upon at Restau­rant L’Olivier de Païo­live on the edge of the wood. We were lucky to get a ta­ble and were re­warded with a typ­i­cally long and re­lax­ing French din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with great food and wine, which was ex­actly what we needed.

We look for­ward to vis­it­ing many more ‘not to be missed’ Liv­ing France des­ti­na­tions in the fu­ture. Cat and Tom Eas­down Ox­ford­shire
