Margaret Shortland,

For many years the three of us had a love of France which was confirmed finally in 1990 with a holiday in Vacquières. We found the local people very friendly and were attracted to the area around the Pic St.Loup. Having explord a number of villages and taking time to be here in the winter we chose St. Mathieu de Tréviers in which to live. The village is small enough to be personal and large enough to have essential facilities for all ages. We made trips into the countryside and villages "Autour du Pic St.Loup" which encouraged us to put together sketches, paintings, photographs and text of some of the places we came to appreciate and never tire of. The launch of the Community of Communes of the Pic St.Loup encouraged us to look for support and led to the publication of our small book in September 2009.


Languedoc & Provence Sun N°52 (July-August-September 2014)

You may have noticed that this issue covers the months of July, August and September. After much debate, discussions and sleepless nights, we have decided that the best way forward for Languedoc & Provence SUN would be to become a quarterly publication. In practice, this means that the magazine will now be published four times a year instead of six, each issue covering 3 months.

The main objective of the magazine has always been to provide quality articles and content about our region and its many attributes. Going quarterly will give us more time to research potential articles, interview interesting people, meet new contributors and gather topical and useful information for you our readers.

This new version will have more pages than the previous one, allowing us to increase the content of each issue, giving you more reading material in one piece.

You may have become familiar with our regular contributors, who do a fantastic job. I take this opportunity to thank them warmly for their valuable input and great imagination, whatever the topic. If you have a little bit of spare time occasionally and share our love of writing, I’m always on the lookout for good quality articles about our area: it could just be your own story, or the portrait of someone you know, a beautiful place, an interesting festival. Whatever the idea, let
me know about it, our next contributor could be you!

If you have any comments or suggestions, you can always email me. In the meantime, I hope you keep on reading the magazine; the kind comments we receive always make all the hard work worthwhile. Have a nice holiday!
