La Vie est Belle : The Elegant Art of Living in the French Style

Description

'France has the only two things toward which we drift as we grow older - intelligence and good manners.' F. Scott Fitzgerald

La Vie est Belle is the perfect gift for Francophiles or those with a passion for the best things in life - elegant interiors, ageless beauty and fine food and wine.

This celebration and distillation of the spirit of France provides a privileged glimpse inside 18 ravishing French homes, from chateaux to farmhouses, as well as the regions in which they are set, including Normandy, Brittany, the Ile de Re, Paris, Provence, the Loire and Bordeaux. The book also features insightful essays on the traditions and characteristics of French life, including pavement cafes, vineyards, classic French furniture and fabrics, regional food specialities and more. Interspersed throughout the book are recipes for authentic French dishes and quotations from great writers and philosophers, designed to immerse you in the culture and ambience of the French way of life.
