During the second week of our holidays in Jura, we did something that I was eager to do : we spent the day with a baker at the Pont-des-vents mill. Bruno, the baker, mills his own flour, bakes bread in the old oven and sells it at the mill or on markets. Receiving people and making bread with them is part of the project he set with the village of Montfleur who owns the 18th century mill.  And he loves receiving people! We really had a wonderful day. This is what you are going to listen in today’s episode.

Rencontre avec Mickaël au belvédère de la Scia

1880-Mickael_8092.jpg

This is Laetitia and you are listening to Cultivate Your French podcast, the slow version of One Thing In A French Day. Cultivate Your French is an easy way to improve your comprehension of the French language as we speak it in France. 

Last week and the week before, I told you about our first week of holidays in Cluny (Burgundy region). We left Cluny and  drove to our next location : Jura. 
Our three daughters took horse lessons and during that time Pietro and I started our day by a nice walk in the forest. Our favorite place was the « Belvedere de la Scia ». It took us forty-five minutes to go there and we had to climb more than 200 meters. But what a nice view we had over the Jura mountains!
This is where we met Mickaël who was hiking in the region and was taking a little pause. In today’s episode you are going to listen to a short conversation between Mickaël and I.

This is Laetitia and you are listening to Cultivate Your French podcast, the slow version of One Thing In A French Day podcast. 
I hope you are well and happy. 
When we were in Cluny our friends Florence and Sébastien came from Lyon to stay with us for two days. Sébastien and my daughter Felicia were friends at school before his family moved to Lyon two years ago. In June, I told his mother Florence that we were coming to Cluny in July. Cluny is only an hour from Lyon by car. 
We visited the abbaye de Cluny on wednesday, the day of their arrival. It was a very interesting visit. There isn’t much to see because the big abbey had been destroyed after the French Revolution. But we had a wonderful guide who explained everything so well that we could imagine it. 
The following day, we rented bikes and part of us rode to Cormatin castle. I had a nice conversation with Emmanuel who owns the bike rental shop and he agreed to talk about his job for the podcast. This is what you are going to hear in today’s episode. 

 

Thank you so much for your enthousiasm about the podcast!
