Today is the start of my spring brocante tour, with six delightful clients here for six days!
We shall be buying brocante – of course – but also enjoying the countryside that is so beautiful at this time of year.
Highlights on our itinerary include a visit to the landing beaches; a walk around Monet’s garden at Giverny; a tour of a 12th century abbey; a class in french cooking with a top chef and we’ll take tea in a private home, a stunning 16th century manor house.
Our brocante buying will take us into old barns, into people’s houses, into huge warehouses and pretty stores …. choice and variety are always key elements for this sort of trip, and I plan carefully to make our days interesting and fruitful.
My guests will have had a long trip to get here so we stay local for the first day, but over the next week we’ll be venturing much, much further and seeing all sorts of treasure and wonderful things.
Here on the blog, it will be business as usual with a couple of blog posts prepared for the weekend, but if you want to keep up with us on the tour then follow our steps on Instagram and on twitter. I’ll be posting images of what we see and get up to all day long.
