    Stephane, Just a quick note to tell you that I am enjoying your new video blog and looking forward to the next one! You were worried about your accent and I could understand you perfectly! It was interesting and I feel like I know you a little better than from just reading your lovely blog. Keep up the good work, you are on a roll!!

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Thank you so much dear Linda! You know how important your opinion is to me! The goal of the channel is to get and feel closer to you all so… Mission accomplished I guess 🙂 Have a lovely day!!

  2. Thank you for the likes on my recent blog post – after looking at your gorgeous photography, tantalising recipes, news and ideas, as a newbie, I was very flattered!
    I will keep you in mind for when I can get over to France again! I did an exchange in Toulouse 10 years ago, but my parents have been back recently. They spent some time in St Emilion and adored it. Is your book published? I spent some time searching but had no luck.
    Warm regards –

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Thanks Zoe! Blogging has changed my life and I am sure it will yours. It truly is a wonderful experience and you are doing quite well I must say. As for the book, it’s been on the back burner for a while. I am now investing all my energy into launching my Youtube channel. That will happen in a week or two… Anyway, thanks for the lovely comment and I hope we’ll get to meet someday in France 😉

      1. Thank you very much. I will keep my eyes posted for the Youtube channel. An interesting concept but it makes sense for the visuals you can include. I filmed trickier parts to upload with a few recipes but I need to upgrade my plan!

    Bonjour, I have not seen any new posts from you since early Dec. Hope all is well and am eargerly awaiting new updates and gorgeous photos.

    1. My French Heaven says:

      You are so sweet Nadia! I’m planning on making a strong comeback next Wednesday 😉

  5. Hi Stephane, I’m excited to have found your blog as I’m visiting Saint-Émilion in September and your posts are so inspiring!! Pip

    1. My French Heaven says:

      I’m glad you found the blog too! You will LOVE St Emilion, especially if wine is your thing… Have a lovely stay!!

  6. Sarah Jane says:

    Hi Stephane, I just wanted to let you know I nominated your wonderful blog for Saveur magazine’s Best Food Blog Awards 2014. Keep up the great work!

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Thanks Sarah Jane! It means a lot coming from you! I just wish you’d post more often on your great blog… Thanks again!!!

      1. Sarah Jane says:

        Yeah, I’ve been a little lax on posting lately. Hubby’s been doing most of the cooking. I’ll have to get back at it. …and your welcome for the nomination. You deserve it!

  7. Chas Spain says:

    What a beautiful place to live. Visited St Emilion many years ago – my son took his first steps at a vineyard there which I hope isn’t a sign I should be concerned about! Hope to come back again some time.

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Thanks for the lovely comment! I hope you do too! 😉

    I would like to visit you sometime in August. Would you have some time available? 😀



  12. indah says:

    Hi Stephane! I love your blog especially the beautiful pictures of your region. It reminds me of my sejours in Dinan, Bretagne when I was in my first year in university.

    Warm greetings from Indonesia,

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Thank you so much Indah! I would love to visit Indonesia one day. I’m afraid of the spiders and snakes though… I guess I can learn how to catch them and cook them 😉

  13. elsonsequeira says:

    Hey Stephane!!!! How are you doing? Dropping in a line to check since I haven’t heard from you in a while. Missing the wonderful posts!!

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Oh thank you for your concern my friend!! First I was too busy to post and now I seem to be missing inspiration. I am also trying to improve my photography skills. I fell in love with a new style of food photography and I am in the process of perfecting my own style from it…

      1. elsonsequeira says:

        Cool! Im sure the upcoming post will be worth the wait…
        looking forward to your posts my friend 🙂

        1. My French Heaven says:

          Thanks my friend!! 😉

  14. alisitaliankitchen says:

    HI Stephane, I can’t seem to receive your comments and posts even though I have changed settings and re did the ‘follow’ several times. I wonder if it is something on your side? Missing the posts!

    1. My French Heaven says:

      I am so sorry to hear that. I’m afraid there is no solution as I have been battling for months with WordPress and they haven’t been able to help. Others with the same problem were able to solve it by signing-up with a different e-mail… I hope you keep reading

  15. Absolutely Beautiful. Thanks for liking my post on Searching Sophia’s Pockets. I hope we can chat more about America, France and Germany, where I now live. Also I think the link to the B&B site is down.
    Autumn Elizabeth

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Thanks Autumn (what a great name you have!). I checked and the link to the B&B seems to work properly… Thanks again!
