"I once lived in a place far, far away. A land where "les folies" were a regular and standard occurrence. Where each day presented new challenges and endless temptations sought to ruin me."



Ma Folie Francaise is a book for anyone who has ever wanted to fall in love with a foreign country. Charming, passionate and inspired it will make you want to follow your dreams, pack up your life and shift to France. 



"A vivacious contemporary tale of life, love and dreaming. A sheer joy to read."

David Rankin





“These past eight years now appear so fleeting in retrospect with La Maison de La Coquille relegated to a bundle of ribbon-tied memories and stored with photo albums and antique linens in a large cardboard packing box.”​​​​​

With eight wonderful and highly successful years running a charming Bed and Breakfast in the glorious south-west of France behind her, Marisa Raoul and her French husband Jean, share the next chapter in their French folly. When the everyday grind of running a busy B&B becomes too much for them, they take on the even greater challenge of restoring a 17th century ruin in the tiny hamlet of Mauranges. They magically transform what seems a lifeless pile of rubble into an amazing new home, where their lives once again travel through twists and turns that neither of them would have ever imagined.

In this uplifting and yet, at times, melancholy sequel to “Ma Folie Francaise”, “Club Mauranges” will take you on a journey through the life and growth of Marisa as a woman torn between two countries and a thousand memories.

It will leave you yearning to know the next step in her incredible life and make you realise that all dreams are achievable…even if they don’t all end with the fairytale “happily ever after”.​​​
