Bonne Année, meilleurs voeux, Happy New Year to everyone in the lovely #AllAboutFrance community,  I hope you’ve all had a wonderful festive season and are now ready to spoil us with inspiring tales of and from France.

As this is my little part of the great world wide web I reckon I get the odd privilege now and again and today I’m going to blatantly PROMOTE MY SELF-CATERING HOLIDAY RENTAL the “one and only” Lou Messugo gîte.  If somehow you’ve failed to realise that Lou Messugo is actually the name of our house and gîte (and not me) then now’s the time to recify that!

Book direct with us here through the website and you’ll save significant amounts on commission fees charged by the big booking sites (though we do have to use those to be seen and have over 150 5 star reviews from contented past guests, just remember to book with me direct please!)

What is All About France?

All About France is a monthly blog linky, linking up blog posts about France.  These posts can be freshly scribbled or from your archives as a way of bringing new life to an old article.  There is no date limit and the only rule for subject matter is that it is about France in some way.  This can mean French language, French food, French style, French literature, expat life in France, French expats abroad or travel in France among other things.  The linky opens on the 1st Thursday of each month and stays open for a week.

Here’s how to join in the fun

  • You can link up one post, old or new as long as it’s about France/French.
  • Please make sure you include the All About France badge at the bottom of your post or in the sidebar of your blog, or a hyperlink back to me (the html code is below).
  • Please comment on the host’s posts and at least two others, the more the merrier.
  • Blog linkys only work if you’re generous with your comments and shares.
  • Please use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance when sharing on social media.
  • • Don’t forget you can join the Pinterest board and pin your post to it for extra exposure.
