Spring has sprung and our very first holiday is composed around two of the most extensive country fairs – brocantes, as the locals refer to this national pastime. These antique and bric-a brac wonders take place at the scenic Charroux village and in the park of the dazzling Chateau de Chambord in the Loire valley. The program also includes excursions to the best focal points in the Limousin and neighbouring areas. Join us on this unforgettable La Creuzette signature experience.
