Happy life

For this special issue, we asked our regular contributors to tell us what the Good Life meant for them so have a giggle at George East’s attempts to find the good life or go through Jeremy Hobson’s charming Rural Riddles. We also hear from TV presenter Helen Skelton, currently living the dream in southern France, learn about expats who have bought and renovated gîtes in rural France and find out how owners of a lovely B&B in Tarn-et-Garonne prepare for the busy season.

Plus a insightful guide into French etiquette, properties with stunning gardens, the various diagnostic reports you can get for a survey of your house and an interview and recipe from chef James Martin.
