Since 2008 the team at LIVING Magazine has been helping companies serving customers across south west France. By featuring businesses in a magazine that is loved and cherished by the local community we have created a win-win situation: readers receive quality, well-researched articles accompanied by unique local photography, while our advertisers welcome new clients.  And everything is produced to the highest production standards.

The dominance of the internet and social media in recent years has challenged many print titles but LIVING has found its niche and developed with it, developing as the population of English speakers in Nouvelle-Aquitaine has steadily grown. This region of France is now home to 25% of UK nationals living in France as well as many other nationalities for whom English is a second language. With nothing similar in the French marketplace,  LIVING is a firm favourite with locals too!

Call our dedicated team today to see how we can help you succeed in France.

Do you know? 25% of British nationals living in France live in Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the number is increasing with new arrivals following Brexit.


LIVING Magazine is brought to you by a dedicated team of professionals….

Kathryn DOBSON - PublishER

 After a career in international marketing and management which resulted in their family move to Geneva, Kathryn and husband Jon decided to follow their dreams by leaving corporate life behind and moving with their three daughters to south west France. Always active in the local community, she has founded several associations and is now a member of the Steering Team at British in Europe. Kathryn has been Editor in Chief of LIVING since 2011.

Jon DObson - Sales

Jon is known to advertisers and stockists of LIVING Magazine alike. After a career in print and sales, he is now both Commercial Director and delivery man!
For six weeks out of every eight, he ensures our advertisers are well looked after, before jumping into Living’s red van to deliver far and wide, often clocking up to 5,000 kms as he visits many of our thousand stockists personally. Jon owns LIVING with his wife Kathryn.



Feature Writer & Photographer

Roger works closely with Kathryn, planning and producing LIVING’s travel and lifestyle features. He worked as a graphic designer and copywriter in advertising until a parallel career in music gave him a taste for travel. He’s since devoted many years to photographing and writing about France. A former editor of ‘Everything France’ Magazine, Roger joined the team in 2012.



Art Editor

Having started her graphic design career in Belgium, Nadia moved to the UK to work for various international magazine publishers and worked as art editor for interiors magazine Home, before finally settling in rural France for a quieter pace of life. But life is far from calm, as she is still doing what she is most passionate about – magazines and designing.



Production Manager

Print production has been Justin’s professional background for over 30 years, during which time he has worked on major UK and international titles. For two years he lived in Belgium and worked for an award winning design agency. 11 years ago he moved with his family to France, but it wasn’t long until the smell of print lured him back and he joined the LIVING team.
