About Us

I’m Gisele and I’m a travel writer and maid to several dogs, cats, ducks, geese and chickens. I have one foot in France and one foot in the USA. I’m also the author of Raconte-Moi Blog, the story of how I went to northern France on a day trip to buy wine and somehow ended up falling completely head over heels in love with a rickety old bargain basement barn and buying it (I know most impulse purchases include handbags or shoes!).

I started Raconte Moi blog in 2017, it was a way of sharing my passion and photos of France. To say that I’ve been amazed and humbled by how its grown to become one of the most popular about France websites in the world is an understatement. The best thing is that so many  people from countries all around the globe enjoy the entertaining and informative features, guides and advice pieces. I’ve been joined by several great travel writers and many talented guest post writers and whether you come to stay for a day or forever we aim to help you make the most of your time. There are holiday and culture guides, events calendars, language aids, fabulous recipes and information about French gastronomy and regional guides. Many of the writers are home owners who’ve dealt with the famous bureaucracy of France and come out the other side and we’re happy to share our advice and recommendations.
