French la Vie 2023 Dates

French la Vie Dates 2023



I am a Franco-American married to a Frenchman and have lived and breathed the French lifestyle and brocantes for over thirty years in Provence. 

I am passionate about old things and enjoy sharing my experience and connections with others. When you come along on a French la Vie, you will meet like-minded people who create with and collect antiques. We will be inspired by visiting private homes, shops, and studios in the Provençal countryside. Meeting the French in their intimate, off-the-beaten path to shop and dive deeper into the French lifestyle.

This truly is a one-of-a-kind journey.

Private Tailored Groups

If you would like to organize a private group, it is possible too.

No matter the size of your group. 

I can create a unique tailored group for couples, a group up to six, and for larger groups,

I have teamed up with Red Shed Tours with their Provençal and Brittany travels.
