Languedoc & Provence Sun
Languedoc & Provence Sun N°50 (March-April 2014)
We’ve all been forced into hibernation lately because of the wet weather. Let’s hope we can all come out now: with plenty of outdoor ideas in this issue, it already feels like Spring. Newcomers Joan Alexander and Élodie Orton have some nice suggestions for us (see Joan’s cycling trip along the Canal du Midi on page 14 and Élodie’s beer festival on page 21). I take you to the charming village of Lussan recently labelled Village de caractère (page 8), a lovely trip for all the family, on top of Dehors les Petits’s activity ideas for your little ones 'page 22). If you’re not ready to venture out just yet, follow Camille’s guide on the knitting revival trend (page 10) and stay by the ﬁre a little longer. Janice Lert treats us to a fascinating historical piece about Frédéric Mistral (page 6), while Rob keeps us entertained with more food stories (page 11).
Meanwhile, I had lunch with Bernice Clark recently and she reminded me of what I miss most about the Brits: their sense of humour. That woman is seriously funny. Check out her beauty anecdotes and salon etiquette tips (page 18), and I dare you not to giggle next time you have your legs waxed.
