Our Great Adventure, Part 2 June 12, 2017
I thought I would share a few more photos and thoughts of our time in France.
While we were gone just a week, the days were packed. Right now, it stays light, later in southern France, than here at home. Often we didn’t sit down for dinner until 9ish. No one complained.
There was something beautiful to see, around every corner. What about the ceiling in this bed and breakfast we visited, for a glass of champagne?
Or, how about the Venetian mirror? The prettiest one I’ve ever seen! Big rooms. Stunning, yet comfortable. Many of the sofas and chairs were covered with slip covers or linens.
Bernedette, or Bernie, as she likes to be called, is the proprietress, and she’s going strong in her late 70’s.
Beautiful chandeliers throughout…but is that an air freshener hanging from this piece? I totally love the wall color/finish!
Even though this home was pretty spectacular, I loved the hotel we stayed in, because it was comfortable and centrally located, within easy walking distance to everything we needed.
Besides the treasure hunt and beautiful sights, the girl-time was a favorite for me. To think that you can gather 14 women, many of whom had never met, that gel so well, was pretty incredible.
Here, we were enjoying lunch, in a bayside restaurant, after a boat ride. Just gorgeous!
If I were doing it over…when I do it again, I’ll fly a much more direct route. Changing planes twice before reaching your destination, is for the birds! I’ll also arrive a day early and stay a day after the tour ends. I’m not a spring chicken, you know. Traveling that far requires a bit more down time.
So, what do you think? Are you ready to go on a vintage shopping tour in France? Want to join me and a fab guide next spring?
I’m making a list of interested travelers, so let me know if you’d like me to add your name! May 2018, baby! Bam!
