Brilliant programme
4 November 2017 | by cuds-42993See all my reviews

I absolutely love this programme, not just for the inspiration it gives me while suffering with severe depression which drains the life out of me, but also for the banter, love, frivolity, passion and laughs that the family has. I think its just wonderful to see as they carry on fulfilling their dream in France. I would recommend this programme to everyone who loves some lighthearted relief :)
