Le Francophile,in print since 1979 and online since 1996.

The bilingual magazine dedicated to l’art de vivre à la française.

 

There is no single reason why someone becomes a Francophile.It might have happened on a school trip or began after watching Jacques Tati in Les vacances de monsieur Hulot.Maybe it was the first time you saw a Mondrian cocktail dress by Yves St Laurent or caught the briefest hint of Chanel No 9.

Whatever the reason you fell in  love with France, Lefrancophile is going to help you consummate the affair. Here you will find articles written by french authors and francophiles of every nationality on subjects ranging from Art to Vin (articles on Zizou and Zaz are on the way). Hopefully they will amuse,enlighten and inform you.
