Bonjour, bonjour !
We are Louise (37 y.o) and Christine (65 y.o).
FrenchWin is our personal blog !
My mother passed her passion for our country on to me throughout my youth.
We spent many vacations and weekends visiting the 4 corners of our beautiful country as a family.
We love our country, with its qualities and of course its imperfections too.
A French author, Sylvain Tesson, sums up our feelings about France perfectly
France is a paradise populated by people who believe they are living in hell !Sylvain TESSON
We are aware of how the French are perceived 🙂
France is beautiful and we love our country ! 🙂
I persuaded my mom to create this blog together to share our passion with you, our privileged visitors.
We both hope you enjoy browsing our blog.
Please feel free to share, comment and like us on social networks!

Who I Am : Christine ROBERT
Not easy to talk about yourself in a few words!
I’m 65 years old and I live in western Paris, in Chambourcy since my retirement in 2018.
I am close to my daughter Louise and her family. Like all grandmothers I am a fan of my 2 grandchildrens!
I also have a son Olivier who lives in the south of France in Toulouse. He also has 2 childrens.
I was born in Alsace and have always lived in this beautiful region of eastern France.
With my husband Bertrand, we have lived many beautiful years as a family with children. Olivier was born in 1978 and Louise was adopted in 1987 when she was 1 year old.
We divorced in 2006 and I am happy to have kept a very good relationship with the father of my children.
I have made my professional career in real estate.
I have always been passionate about travel, culture and literature.
I have tried to transmit these passions to my children. They were sometimes fed up with museums and travels during their childhood.
We have not stopped moving around France and elsewhere!
You can find me my personal Linkedin.
