Our Team

Sharon Santoni

Founder & Editor-in-Chief

British by origin but French at heart, Sharon Santoni first came to France as a student, fell in love with France and with a cute French boy and never looked back. She has since made her life here. With her husband, they raised their family of four children in their home in the countryside of Normandy. It was as she watched her children grow up and leave home that she felt a vital need to reinvent herself. Without any formal training or experience, she created a blog in 2010 to share her love of France and authentic French country lifestyle. Her style, vision, elegance and intuition quickly captured an international audience, leading Sharon to publish two bestselling books, guide luxury private tours around France, create an online business, and launch My French Country Home Magazine.
