MY FAVORITE THINGS
Les Sources de Caudalie Spa
Located among the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, LES SOURCES DE CAUDALIE was established in 1999. 5-star hotel, a Vinothérapie Spa, a 2-Michelin star restaurant, La Grand' Vigne, a country-inn restaurant, La Table du Lavoir, a wine bar and a fabulous staff.
I have been there several times and highly recommend it. Located not far from Bordeaux, France. If you want to have a few Spa days, this is where you want to go.
Limoges tea set
This gorgeous hand painted tea set was created for Limoges and sold at the Christofle store in Paris. The painting of this set is of the water lilies that Monet was so well known for and which he painted from his garden at Giverny.
When I bought my first home in France , 20 years ago, I started going to the flea markets and brocantes. It wasn’t until 6 years ago that I started my web site to share my treasures with you. In the Spring there are flea markets in almost all the villages in France. Here are a few of my favorites. Verteillac…. Held the 1st Sunday of every month all year long Porte de Vanves Paris….Open almost every weekend Villeneuve- les- Avignon.,,open on Sunday
