2015 brocante and lifestyle tours

by Sharon Santoni

 Thank you to all those of you who have been asking for details of the 2015 brocante tour details!  Thank you for your patience and your enthusiasm.

2015 is going to be a big year for brocante, with fantastic fairs planned all over Normandy and the north of France.

I am proposing two group tours with a fixed itinerary as well as a couple of dates for private group tours for those who prefer to travel with own group of family and friends.

This year the group tours will be smaller, with a maximum of six guests on each trip.  The group will be driven around each day in a luxury vehicule with chauffeur, and I or my assistant will be on hand to give guests all the help they require to ship home their purchases.

For each tour  the dates are tied in with specfic fairs so I am sure of offering you six action packed days with ample opportunities to hunt for treasure.

For the group tours, one in the spring and one in the fall,  both are timed to take in a big antique and brocante fair as well as a wide selection of local dealers.  Accommodation for these group tours will be at the stunning Château d’Emalleville where the rooms are comfortable, the breakfast divine, the grounds and gardens impeccable and I know that my guests will feel at home.

The group tour itinerary will cover five nights and six days, in the spring from 13th – 18th May, and in the fall from 23rd to 28th September.   Each of these tours will include one day at a huge fair, one day at the Paris flea market and the rest of the time touring this beautiful part of Normandy, visiting antique and brocante dealers and generally getting off the beaten track.

If you have your own group ready to travel, then I still have availability  for a private tour from 23rd to the 28 April, you are welcome to email me for details.  THIS  APRIL TOUR IS NOW SOLD OUT

And if you prefer the idea of touring in the South of France, then I have availability for a small  bespoke brocante and lifestyle tour, in May.  This is new for 2015, and will be an exclusive and privileged tour designed to give you a real insight into French living and french designer lifestyle.  You are welcome to email me for details.

If are interested in joining one of the MFCH brocante tours this year, just drop me an email and I shall be happy to send you the information.   Places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis, and each place secured with a non-refundable deposit.

This is going to be fun!

Dear Sharon
Today a wonderful woman called Mercedes came into my little antique shop by the river in Tumbulgum, Northern Rivers NSW Australia and told me about you. Well!!!! how excited I am to be about to live a long held dream of spending 4 seasons in France and tripping around French markets and antique stores AND with the possibility of bringing some treasures home with me:). I am free to travel from April 2015 onwards. What have you planned? Looking forward enormously to your reply, regards Sisterhelen xxx.
