Let’s travel away from chez moi. Today I would like to “transport” you to another small village, much farther away from Paris than ours.
I want to introduce you to a stunning English family of seven from ages nine to 19 (plus their feathered and furry friends) who decided that life in the French department of the Charente Maritime offers them the rich and tranquil — well, sometimes, but not always — lifestyle that perfectly coincides with their idea of la joie de vivre and l’art de vivre.
Luckily for all of us, Susan, wife and mother of five, writes a blog, Our French Oasis, about life in her corner of the world.
Her blog, charmingly written and beautifully illustrated with her photographs (seen here), is a joy. I’m sure you’ll agree and no doubt become a regular reader of her family’s adventures.
Confession: I’ve never been to the Charente Maritime, but Susan makes me realize what I’ve been missing all these years.
