The September Brocante Tour got underway last Tuesday and yet again I am in awe of the amazing guests who have trusted us and joined the Tour.
On this tour I have only lady guests, and there is a special bond that is palpable within the first few hours of the tour. Maybe we are linked by our common love of all things French, or by the fascination for brocante and antiques, and maybe its just because each person brings their own personality to the table without ever forgetting to be interested in those around them. Whatever the reason the tours are always most enjoyable.

As well as daily opportunities to shop, we have enjoyed private guided visits to a 16th century chapel; a cooking lesson; a private visit to Versailles and a beautiful encounter with a watercolour artist at her 17th C chateau home.
Here is just a small selection of pictures from the tour, it is a challenge to remember to take enough shots, but for more images you are welcome to follow along on my Instagram stories.
We already have dates for our Spring tour in Provence and for our next year brocante tour in Normandy and Paris, and we’ll soon announce a brand new antique and lifestyle tour for 2019. Watch this space!
