I love how loads of my and Paul's friends are mad about France just like us!
Kate Bryant has been a friend of my partner Paul for over 30 years and had her first experience in France with a family for whom she nannied back in her 20s. The love of the fresh food, the slower pace of life and all things French has never left her.
Kate chats to me about some memories of staying in the Luberon in the south of France. With a special focus on a barge holiday where she traveled from Béziers to Trèbes along the Canal du Midi with 9 friends. I have always wanted to enjoy a barge holiday! I've wanted to do this way before I saw Rick Stein's French Odyssey, but that series definitely whetted my appetite! Kate told us about the intricacies of barge life, with some terrific tips. It is clear that it is loads of fun and relaxing too as Kate painted an idyllic picture, floating along between villages on the Canal du Midi...
Join Loulabelle for a gorgeously warm chat. With a French recipe and some French music, you will feel like you have momentarily escaped to France!
