Pauline Caldwell's France - Welcome!

Welcome! On these pages are photos of some of my favourite places in France, I hope you'll enjoy them. The photographs are taken mainly at places in the Loire Valley, Brittany, The Cevennes, and all across that huge swathe of south and south west France, the Midi and Languedoc-Roussillon.

With this site I've tried to convey, by the design, some of the feel of simplicity and relaxation I get in rural France, the feeling, often, of a bygone age. Although an industrial giant, France places great importance on the wellbeing of its rural communities and the people who make them what they are. If you haven't already, I hope you get the chance to visit this glorious country and make friends with some of her people.
