20 years on and Brits are still following in the footsteps of Peter Mayle

‘Twenty years on and thousands of Brits still want to make the move to France,’ affirms Eleanor O’Kane, editor of Living France magazine. ‘Peter Mayle’s seminal book A Year in Provence was first published in 1989, the same year that Living France magazine was founded. Today, Living France is the best-selling magazine about France on the newsstand and this is because there is still really keenly priced property on the market and because the French way of life continues to attract Brits across the Channel.’

The 20th-birthday issue of Living France has an exclusive interview with Peter Mayle and catches up with the ultimate expat 20 years on. ‘He’s still in Provence so we wanted to find out what people moving to France today can expect,’ explains Eleanor O’Kane. ‘We aim to arm our readers with all the information they need to make the move. Every issue is packed full of interviews with expats, practical property pieces and inspirational travel articles; our expert section is where French-specialist legal and financial advisors guide readers through the red tape. We help readers at every stage of moving to France from introducing regions of France, through the house purchase process, to settling in whether it’s in a holiday home or as a permanent move.’
