What is it like to live in Seine-Maritime?

Some of France’s best-loved towns, villages and cities have provided the setting for some of our favourite French films. We discover what life is like on these real-life movie sets.

James Martin travelled the length and breadth of France for his French Adventure series. We caught up with the B&B expats who hosted him to find out more.

There is also expert advice on insurance, child benefits and estate agents’ commission in France and a guide to renovation. We also have a recipe from James Martin for Pork with Vichy carrots…
