Chateau Getaway













Thinking about my escapes...and how I haven't taken one lately...got me thinking about about renting a chateau in the South of France. I'd let the rooms to women who wanted to go and hunt for treasures in Toulouse, Septfonds and Beziers. All meals would be prepared by a private cook. Each morning we would head out to the flea markets or brocantes for the early part of the day. The afternoons would be free time for people to wander the grounds, visit a vineyard, or take a craft class. I'm thinking about it....anyone interested?

Why oh why wasn't I born rich? My mother always said it was just as easy to marry a rich man as a poor one...and I had to go and marry an actor...

What a dream this would be....I honestly cannot even imagine. If you really do put this together, please email me.

I will find a way I will find a way I will I will I will

I'll do it! I'm a long time resident in France (from the Midwest) - just a half hour away from Giverny/Monet's gardens.
Big on brocante, too - we just had the fall Chatou antique/brocante fair here. I'm sure you've been there!
