French Country Adventures’ Brocante and Antique Tour
Brocante, vide-greniers, and marchés aux puces, also known as flea markets gather crowds of devotees and onlookers in search of a bargain, a rare item, a decorating idea or a souvenir. The Barcelone-du-Gers Brocante & Vide-Grenier is the top of the list of must-see flea markets. It takes place the first Thursday in August. Join me on this 4 day antiquing extravaganza. Friday we’ll visit the 13th century Château des Brocanteurs, an antique treasure chest in the bastide of Lectoure. Saturday we’ll wander the vide-grenier in the old Roman village of Eauze, and on Sunday we’ll choose the best offering to punctuate this long weekend. As a special treat we might even have a private tour of a local château. We will dine at some of the areas finest restaurants. The best antique markets in Gascony are found every weekend from April – November and can be customized to meet your location and needs.
