Mini Muse

 

aMuse Bouche

A bespoke taster of the most beautiful,  inspiring and delicious parts of Provence!

Perhaps you would love to spend a day with us learning how to ‘brocante’ like an expert, or you need help planning a special gathering – a picnic in a cherry field, or a vintage themed luncheon? Or perhaps your would like an invitation to discover the hidden worlds of important local makers and artists?
We are more than happy to discuss your needs and to tailor make a day for you and your loved ones.


As an artist, the French Muse Experience inspired and informed my work in ways I never expected. Foraging through bins of antique lace at the crack of dawn with our own personal translator, negotiator, and textile expert, I knew I had made the best decision. The hidden sources, the studio visits, even the world class food we ate, have all left an indelible mark on my creative practice.
— Michael Birch Pierce, artist

How does it work?*

Step 1:    Choose your Date

Step 2:   Choose your theme

 

Brocante

Every weekend, France unfolds history and heritage in villages and towns all over. Everything from flea markets, garage sales, to big antiques fairs.  If you LOVE a good rummage and taking home a very special souvenir then this is for you!

I like to think that antiquing in France is an art in itself, and not all brocantes are created equal.

So whether you are a passionate collector or just love to stroll and soak up the atmosphere, I can tailor your Mini Muse Brocante experience according to your style and budget, ensuring you maximise your time (and money) and you will have me by your side throughout to help translate and negotiate.

The Mini Muse Brocante day is limited to a Saturday or Sunday – as the French brocante (flea market) is a weekend event.

Please note that transport is not included in this tarif, we would advise you where best to go based on your style and budget and meet you at location. Of course, if you do require transport we can of course arrange for same and create a special package.

  • Brocanting morning: 225€ (9am-noon) for two guests, 20€ per person for each additional person. Cost includes a bi-lingual (french/english) guide who is at hand to translate and negotiate on your behalf.
  • Brocanting day: 400€ for a full day for two people (9am-4pm). 50€ per person for each additional person; four people maximum. Cost includes a bi-lingual (french/english) guide who will be on hand to assist with translation & negotiation services.
