Hi there!

Hello everyone, I’m Mathilde, 29 years old, french and living in Nantes. The idea behind ‘a french girl in France’ is to offer a french perspective on what this country is really about. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of blogs out there on the beautiful country that is France, but most english written ones are by foreigners. This time you’ll be able to discover it through the lenses of a native, born and raised in Paris, now living in Nantes. From food to culture, art to literature and travels to experiences,  this lifestyle blog will make you feel as if you’re right there with me. So that’s me and I am thrilled to be soon sharing with you the ups and downs of ‘a french girl in France’. Stay tuned.
