Our Story

What began as a simple love of daily life in France, a passion for real food and a desire to feed our children home grown, home cooked dishes, has developed into Our French Lifestyle.

This is not just a market-place to buy things, but also hopefully a portal through which we hope you will find great inspiration to help you discover and enjoy every aspect of French living, both inside and outside the home, and no matter where you live in the world.

You’ll find ideas for entertaining at various times of the year, from how to throw the perfect Christmas French-style party to a long lazy summer’s lunch in the garden. You’ll find recipes and tips we’ll share from time to time; there will also be ideas and suggestions picked up here and there, little discoveries from along the path of our French journey.

Discover our luxury short foodie breaks, here in the Charente Maritime; these are for guests who want to experience something a little different – learning the art of selecting and cooking fresh seafood.

We hope you will visit often. In addition to what you might see in our shop, we can also help you with any bespoke item you particularly hope to find for your home – please just let us know and we will try and source it for you.

If you have any questions then please always feel free to ask away and one of us will answer as quickly as we can.
