Sainte-Chappelle Paris the church that’s like a Jewellery box

Sainte-Chappelle Paris the church that’s like a Jewellery box
Earnest faced angels with pale pink and blue wings and voluminous frocks hover over the six musicians on a tiny stage. Solemn faced saints look down from their lofty perches. Shadows flicker across stained glass windows and sculpted walls that have stood for centuries as the sweet sound of Bach fills the air. An enraptured audience breaks into spontaneous applause as the musicians finish. This is a concert like no other… A true taste of culture in Paris inside one of the most ancient of churches where Kings and Queens prayed and religious relics that cost fortunes were once housed – Sainte Chappelle is a legendary building that is now also an incredible night time music venue.

Fabulous food themed holidays in France

For fabulous food themed holidays in France and gorgeous gites with an olive flavour – look no further, we’ve got you covered! Divine olive vineyard visits Olive trees have been grown in France for around 2,500 years. They were introduced by the Greeks who landed in Marseille, the oldest city in France. Homer called it “liquid gold” and the French took to it with enthusiasm. Where ever you go in the south, you’re bound to come across an olive tree and if you’re lucky a whole orchard full of them. Like grapes, olives have a perfect picking moment. Just don’t eat them straight off the tree – they taste vile and will leave you wondering how it is possible that they can be transformed into something so good! They need to go through a process of soaking and curing first. Olive oil is at the heart of French cooking, ask any ...

How to pronounce r in French it’s easy when you know how!

The hardest sound in French The hardest sound for most people when learning French is the ‘r’ sound. It’s a great achievement if you can master that rolling ‘r’. Although I hold a Master’s degree in the language and have had many years to improve my spoken French, I feel I still haven’t reached the perfection of pronouncing the ‘r’ (“Err” in French).
