But I am also keen to feature any new offers or services from smaller business owners in France, for example a last minute deal for a gite booking, new products in your shop or money off end-of-line items. Drop me a line with the details.
Here is the first collection of deals:

Irish Ferries offer booking discount
The ferry firms early booking discount and reduced booking deposit arrangement applicable on their Ireland to France service will remain in place until the end of January 2012.
The links marked with a * earn a small commission on any sales, there's no extra cost to you and it helps keep This French Life up and running (as well as the dog in biscuits).
And remember if you run a small business in France and have an offer or deal then get in touch, there is no fee for this service, I just know how difficult it is to promote a business and hopefully this will help you get off on the right foot.
