Welcome

 

Here’s to LIFE

 

It has been a busy time since the launch. A brand new section has been born - ‘LIFE”, which is the new home of Robin’s wonderful ‘Days Out’, as well as wine and restaurant reviews. We’ve also added some interesting articles of our own - such as one on the cardboard (yes, that’s right) Pont du Gard built in 2007 by this year’s Pritzker Prize for Architecture - Sigeru Ban. There’s also new articles from Rosemary George (wine reviews), Gill Pound (spring gardening tips) and Jonathan Miller (public loos).

 

Don't miss any great films in English Know when all the big antiques fairs are happening VO Films & Antiques Fairs

 

We’d like to draw your attention to two types of events that we hope will prove very popular. The first are listings for ‘VO’ (in English) films. Click EVENTS and then FILM - and you’ll see all the best English-language films in the region listed, with times and locations. And with Béziers’ massive antiques fair coming up next weekend - we’d like to point out that all of Languedoc’s huge antiques fairs have now been added to the site - just click EVENTS and then ANTIQUES. If you’ve never been to one - just image a great antique shop, multiply it by 100 then divide the prices by 2.

 

Please don’t assume we know

 

If you’ve heard of any good events on in the region - please do let us know. We can’t spot everything - and great events could easily be missed. Just click the ‘Share an EVENT >’ button on the right to send us something.
