Montmartre in the Snow

Montmartre is spectacular all year round, but even more so in the snow! There are few occasions in recent years where Paris has been covered in a blanket of white and one of the few photographers to capture it so beautifully was Sébastien Pélegrin. Discover more spectacular shots by this gifted travel photographer in our latest Portfolio.

A Winter Garden in Normandy

Nestled atop a river bank, near the picturesque village of La Courbe, we visit La Queurie, a Normandy B&B. While this Renaissance building has a charm of its own, it’s the pastoral garden that captures our attention. The grasses and reeds were planted to come into their own during winter, a landscape of tall and graphic shapes that glitter in the frost.

Solognote sheep, chickens, and the farmyard cats are the guardians of this tranquil piece of land.

A mix of French and German culture makes Strasbourg one of the most interesting towns to visit in France.

Discover the city with us, including how to navigate its legendary Christmas markets in the city and great day trips in the surrounding area, like Colmar (below).

    I have really looked forward to receiving each of MFCH magazines ( I am a magazine tragic ) they have not disappointed and the November/December looks to be stunningly beautiful and bursting with informative stories. In a time where digital magazines seem to be taking over it is truly heart warming to know that we still have the option of being able to hold and read and experience the tactile sensation of the MFCH magazine, thank you to the team and to Sharon for sharing your inspiration and passions for France, I feel very privileged and grateful to you all.
