Bric-a-brac away

4 days/ 3 nights

July 29th to August 1st.

August 26th to August 29th - August session now fully booked

If you imagine your ideal weekend driving around going from brocante to brocante, and attic sale to attic sale, then jump on in! Normally, on most weekends when I am at the Château, David (our Château restorer) and I explore the region's second-hand treasures. It's fast and furious because its first dibs at these haunts. David always brings a thermos of spiced apple juice and home-made carrot cake. Our chefs will make sure you have enough snacks for the road. And if you find an antique (or two) that you simply can't live without, don't worry, we can load it in the van together, store it at the Château, and then ship it to your home after your visit. Simple as that! It's a real life antique roadshow!

This weekend promises a few days of fun and silliness. Don't forget to bring your camera. We are sure to stop at all sorts of interesting places along the way!
