I am very pleased to introduce you to a lovely friend of mine.
Sharon of My French Country Home Blog.
She lives in the beautiful Normandy countryside of France,
and has just recently launched Brocante Tour Weekends
Sharon will be waiting for you at the train station, a 1 hour ride from Paris.
You will have the choice of staying in her charming 2 bedroom cottage on her property,
or the Clos de Mondetour which is 5 minutes away
You'll soon feel like old friends as she drives you to lovely brocantes, delightful French restaurants, cooking classes, a private tour of a local château led by the owners, antique shop with an upclose look at restoration projects.
On Sunday, several brocante fairs await. The thrill of the hunt usually leads to unexpected treasures. A picnic lunch will keep you going all day.
On the way back to the train station, a stop at Claude Monet's home at Giverny. The lily pond and garden is in full bloom at this time of the year. A final farewell lunch in the village will end this delightful weekend.
The dates for the tours are:
Friday 29 April to Monday 2 May 2011 &
Friday 24 June to Monday 27 June 2011
*She can accomodate other dates as well, and can help you with tailor-made tours for shorter or longer stays.*
Sharon has carefully thought out every detail so you are sure of a fabulous time.
Brocante Tours Weekends are a perfect add-on to a stay in Paris -
