Véro on the balcony of iconic La Maison Fournaise on a sunny day


Welcome if you are new here. Welcome back if you’ve enjoyed following me for a while.

Véro on the balcony of iconic La Maison Fournaise on a sunny day

Photo-essays, Instagram reels (short videos with music that let me pretend I am a famous movie director,) impromptu chats on social media (in English or in French) live-streamed virtual tours, videos: Most of the content I’ve shared online for over a decade is free.

I am lucky to make a living doing what I love, telling stories about my homeland, learning and teaching while meeting some pretty cool people along the way.

France with Véro is a small business. There are costs involved in running day-to-day operations, this beautiful website and creating the video tours I share on YouTube.

If you enjoy the free, quality content I continue to publish and would like to see more,  please consider supporting me.

Merci beaucoup !

Kind words from Patrons in
"la Bande de Véro" (Véro's posse)

It’s a nice feeling to know I continue to inspire folks and make a difference for people out there. Don’t take my word for it. Read some testimonials collected from a Patron survey I ran in January 2023 and even more accolades here.

Fan faves on YouTube

I wouldn’t want you to believe that the French are obsessed with food! Still, maybe we are, un petit peu (a little bit) as demonstrated in these two virtual tours filmed in Paris and in Nice. Bon voyage (et bon appétit) !
