Guest Post From Sunday Brocantes: A French Fairy Tale (Or Our Accommodations In France)

I asked Cat if she would share some details about our Blogger’s Brocanting Tour in France and she graciously accepted my invitation to do a guest post here at LBE.  You’re in for a real treat.

Hi, I’m Cat and I have been so thrilled to see the fall tour coming together!  Many of you have already booked and there are a few spots left with less than a week left for the 'Early Booking' rebate offer. I am so looking forward to meeting you in person!

Behind the scenes there have been plenty of phone calls between Kim and me, lots of planning and scheduling and of course I have been taking time to add all of the extras that will make this tour a trip of a lifetime!

So for those of you who have already booked--and those who are considering grabbing up those last spots--here is a little sneak-peek at one aspect of your trip--the gorgeous 'manoir' where you will be staying during the Normandy portion of your time with us!

Owned by a lovely friend of mine and her wonderful family, this 18th century home now open's its doors to travelers and has the esteemed distinction of being selected as one of the 10 Best Hideaways and Inns in the World in the best-selling guide 'Ten Best of Everything'.

The manoir was built in the 18th century of materials from the 14th and 15th century and is located on a hillside overlooking the beaches of Honfleur.

Take a look!

At the manoir tour participants will enjoy breakfast and dinner and an afternoon 'aperitif' (or two...).  There are so many lovely places to sit and relax, send emails home (or write postcards!)

At the end of a long day of hunting for (and finding) vintage treasures.....

.... This will be your 'home away from home'!  I hope you can join us!

September 19th - 26th Paris to Normandy!

There is more to tell you--but I am saving the best for my next guest-post! 

Just a reminder--- you save $200 off the tour price by booking before March 15th!

Thanks, Cat.  All I can say is “WOW”!  This place is breathtaking and oh so very special. 

Run, don’t walk to sign up for the last couple spots left on this exclusive trip of a lifetime.  What are you waiting for?  Please email me at khites@iccgh.com to let me know you want to go.

I’ve just returned from a wonderful antique & garden show in Lexington and will be sharing that with you all later in the week.  I don’t have to tell you, that as good as the antiques were this weekend, there’s nothing compared to antiquing in France.

Blessings,

Kim

Kim, if you listen out your door I am fairly certain you can here my huge sighs coming from here in Ohio to you in Kentucky!

If my 10th anniversary wasn't on Sept 20th - right smack dab during your tour - I swear I would so be going.

This manor is TO DIE FOR and I am so happy for you all, yay yay yay!!

Kim, this is a gorgeous manor home, and I know this is going to be a fabulous trip. I wish I could join this group. This type of trip is right up my alley! Doesn't work for me this time, but perhaps another time if you offer this again. I'm certainly envious. You girls are going to have a grand time shopping the markets of Paris and Normandy. Look for a piece of Napoleonic memorabilia for me. '-)
