On the town

Living France - - What's New -

I read my Oc­to­ber is­sue of Liv­ing France from cover to cover, as I al­ways do – it’s my in­spi­ra­tion for our move to France. While I’ve al­ways dreamed of liv­ing in a his­toric lit­tle vil­lage some­where like Dor­dogne, I found my­self fas­ci­nated by the Paris fea­ture. I’d never con­sid­ered a city – Paris is for week­end breaks, not full-time liv­ing. Or so I’d thought. I kept find­ing my­self day­dream­ing of an apart­ment in the cap­i­tal. Walks along the Seine, end­less re­tail ther­apy, never run­ning out of new restau­rants to try, trendy bars...

At the week­end, we went to our favourite lo­cal French restau­rant – we al­ways go there when we need a France fix. I broached the sub­ject of a city move and found my hus­band sur­pris­ingly agree­able. We talked for hours, and have de­cided that while Paris might be a step too far, we’re go­ing to se­ri­ously con­sider some smaller French cities, where there’s more go­ing on to keep us oc­cu­pied. So thanks Liv­ing France for a new in­jec­tion of in­spi­ra­tion!

Toulouse is a great op­tion for those look­ing for the buzz of a town with amaz­ing coun­try­side on the doorstep
