our brocante and french lifestyle tour to Provence

by Sharon Santoni

chateau de moissac, south of france

 

Our Provence tour is quite unique.  I teamed up with my girlfriend Marie Christine Caviglioni, we have put together a dreamy tour combining antiques, flowers, food and chateau living.  A rare opportunity to see a hidden and authentic side to life in Provence.

Marie Christine lives with her charming husband Louis in the Chateau de Moissac, in the Provencal countryside.   The chateau will serve as our base camp during the tour: we’ll dine here, cook, style and take photos, learn how to arrange flowers from an expert and return to the chateau each evening, for drinks before dinner.   Louis will show us around the chateau and explain their ten year renovation to transform the chateau from crumbling ruin to this stunning home.

Surprisingly, although the chateau is huge, it doesn’t offer accommodation for a group of guests.  Consequently, the chateau is privatised for us during the tour, and  accommodation is literally three minutes walk from the chateau, in a lovely hotel, where each guest will enjoy their own room and ensuite bathroom.

Guests arrive either at the Aix en Provence railway station,  or in Nice.  Our chauffeurs collect them from the train station, the airport or their hotel and bring them to the Chateau for the start of the tour.   The last morning of the tour will take place in Nice, and guests can continue their journey from there, or be driven to the airport to fly home.

We are happy to email you with full details of the tour, but I can already tell you that the trip will include:

multiple opportunities to buy brocante and antiques

a lesson in floral art

a visit to an artisan potter, and basket maker will the chance to buy their unique products

a half day lesson in the art of  creating a perfume

an opportunity to shop at a provencal farmers market

a cooking class in the kitchen of the chateau

a lesson in buying and caring for antique linens

If you’d like to know more, just drop me a line here, and we’ll be happy to send you the brochure with complete details.  The tour is scheduled for 22nd to 27th in May 2019.   If you have your own ready made group of friends, then we are happy to make this your own private tour, and if there are husbands on board, we’ll adapt the itinerary to keep them happy while you arrange flowers.

What can one say, sharon, but……WOW!

Would you have dreamed you’d one day be doing this, when you first started your blog?

And to think you’ve pretty much done it all on your own?……..I find that intensely admirable. I expect a lot of other folks do, also.

Best wishes, as ever,

David Terry
