About

As a mother and a long term expatriate I know the challenges of mothering, of living in a foreign country and of mothering in a foreign country. Hope this can be a great resource for all you mothers out there.

    I like how informative you website is and see how it gives good information to ex-pat moms and families. There is a kid’s day camp in English coming up in July that is open for ex-pats and French alike that I would like to share with you.
    The international Christian Community of Provence organizes an amazing kids camp in July. Last year there were 65 kids between the ages of 5 and 11 and it was a great time. This year it was the week July 6 to 10. It is set at the wonderful home of one of the families in St Marc Jaumegarde, staffed with counselors (many coming in for the week from the US) , and junior counselors ( from age 11-18) who are often alumni of the Camp. Activities run from Arts and Crafts to sports, participating in singing and music, live drama, and much more . This year’s theme is ‘ Aixpedition Atlantis’ and has an underwater theme.
    We love what an impact this camp has on the kids and what a joy it brings to their summer. So if you are able to share about this camp with other it would be greatly appreciated. The camp website is http://www.iccpaix.org/Kidscamp

    Hello! We are visiting Eze, which isn’t in Provence but looks to be fairly close on the map, December 21-31. My husband and I, our 14yo son and 4yo daughter. I’m starting to get anxious about entertaining the boy and feeding the girl — she has celiac disease. I barely speak French, which is more than any of my other family members. My son, though, is somewhat fluent in Latin, so I hope we’ll be able to manage between the two of us. Any tips to help ensure an enjoyable vacation or to reduce my pre-trip stress level?

    We live in south Texas, and this is our first trip to France. I’d love to find parents of celiac children in the Cote d’Azur area but I’ve been searching on the internet for weeks and coming up empty.

    My email is lsremington@sbcglobal.net. Thanks!

      Try contacting the tourist board of Eze. They will speak English and can give you loads of ideas of how to entertain your children as well as where to get support for your daughter’s condition.

      Most of all kick back and enjoy the easy pace of life and the fantastic lifestyle. You won’t want to go back home!

      Enjoy
