Languedoc & Provence Sun

Languedoc & Provence Sun N°53 (Autumn 2014)

Well, I think that’s it. The sun cream has finally given its last breath, my loyal flip-flops have ended up in the recycling bin and the children are off to school. I guess we are back to normal life and believe it or not, it is time to think about… Christmas! Oh noooo I’ll hear you scream, but as we are now quarterly, this issue will cover October, November and December – three months packed with ideas of things to do, visit, drink and eat.


We are always happy to welcome new contributors, but we are truly spoilt this time. Rachel Baker, journalist, food writer and now proud inhabitant of Apt, has joined the ranks (p10 & 32), and so has author Janice Macdonald (p12), who will follow for the next 12 months the inside life of a wine domain for us. We also welcome on board Richard Simpson-Birks (p15). And I’m sure you will carry on enjoying our regular contributors Bernice Clark (p8), Janice Lert (p6), Camille Vourc'h (p29) and Caren Trafford (p22), who has kindly donated books for our fantastic kids drawing competition (p28).


Enjoy the falling leaves, the chestnuts, the early nights by the fire with a good book, and when you feel ready to think about it, have a lovely Christmas...
