From the history-cloaked towns of Normandy and the fragrant lavender fields in Provence to the dew-kissed vineyards of Burgundy and Aquitaine, nothing compares with the beauty and the romance of France. The latest offering from the editors of Victoria magazine, Our Hearts Are in France takes readers on a memorable journey through this majestic country, where centuries-old chateaux rise from the riverbanks and snow-dusted mountains give way to rolling hills and fertile valleys sprinkled with tiny villages, each one more enchanting than the last. We visit the eternally alluring City of Light, where Julia Child honed her culinary skills, Parisians stroll pocket gardens brimming with roses, and love blooms beneath the graceful curves of the Eiffel Tower.
Our Hearts Are in France is replete with page after page of beautiful interiors, from the idyllic retreat of Marie Antoinette and a pastoral farmhouse in Provence to the quaint quarters of an American in Paris, as well as with ideas for creating personal Gallic-inspired sanctuaries. And should one’s palate long for a taste of French cuisine, we offer a cache of delectable recipes that are certain to delight both sweet and savory yearnings. Equal parts travel guide, design compendium, and cookbook—and a must for any Francophile—Our Hearts Are in France honors and celebrates this magical land that holds such a special place in our hearts.
