Welcome to our autumn Newsletter

Autumn is in the air as the seasons gently change, although the weather is still mild and pleasant. The leaves are turning into glorious reds and golds and the countryside offers up a feast of mushrooms, ripe fruit and nuts.

It is therefore in this vein that we have included an article on chestnuts, or 'châtaigne', and a delicious recipe for Petit Mont Blanc Meringues using the sweetened chestnut puree, crème de marrons de l'Ardeche.

Pierre Soulages, described by President Hollande recently as 'the world's greatest living artist' was born in Rodez, Languedoc-Roussillon and lives today in Sète. Famous for his large black canvasses using the texture of the paint to reflect light and create shadows, he is the most renowned French contemporary artist in the world. Read more about this world famous local artist and his Museum in our article.

As usual we have featured a varied selection of properties that we want to bring to your attention and do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like any further information on these or indeed any of our properties
