MFCH Guide to Versailles
We kick off the year with a return to a staple of French culture: a mesmerizing tour of the town of Versailles and its world-famous royal château and gardens that are the epitome of French opulence and design. From where to eat to where to stay to what to do — we’ve got you covered!
We dig deep into the roots of some of the most stunning gardens across France with an in-depth examination of the amazing art of topiary clipping and shaping. Plus, tips for getting really creative and making your own!
Clothing boutiques, bakers, cheesemongers, wine sellers… a large part of France relies on its charming local stores and shops. In this issue, we take you on a relaxing stroll past some of our favorite French vintage storefronts.
We also sit down with the French artist Fabienne Delacroix for our feature “Little Windows Of Happiness.” Steal a glimpse of some of her charmingly nostalgic and joyful depictions of bygone Paris before wandering off to browse our usual offerings of French recipes, shopping guides, columns and more.
