Bric-a-brac Away

3 Nights / 4 days

June 14th to June 17th 2018

If you imagine your ideal weekend driving around going from brocante to brocante, attic sale to attic sale, and rummaging through vintage clothing shops, then jump on in! Normally, on most weekends at the Château, we explore the region's second-hand treasures. It's fast and furious because it's first dibs at these haunts. We always bring a a few refreshments and our chefs will make sure you have enough snacks for the road.

If you find some Château-sized treasures that you simply can't live without, don't worry, we can load it in the van, store it at the Château during your stay, and sort the rest out later. Simple as that! It's a real life antique roadshow!

This weekend promises a few days of fun and silliness, vintage shops, broqanting, and more, so don't forget to bring your camera. We are sure to stop at all sorts of interesting places along the way!
