On the town
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
