Can this be my home away from home??

Now that we have the all important food mostly out of the way, I wanted to share with you a few photos of the beautiful Chateau Dumas. The Chateau is just 30 min North of Montabaun, an hour or so North of Toulouse France.

Kaari Meng of the French General found this lovely Chateau owned by our gracious hostess Lizzie. It was a wonderful find! What a week we had. This is the second year Kaari and her Mom, "Kick", and sister Molly Meng hosted this incredible week in the South of France.

This was the first photo I took when Jackie, Jeanne, Anne, Alexis and I arrived from the train station.

I had a lovely room called the "Lakeview" suite. A relaxing respite from the long travel day we had. In the morning after a heavy night's sleep I awoke to this view out my windows.

The intricate landscaping on the side of the Chateau.

The colors were really pretty, doesn't this just make you dream of pale blue shutters of your own?!? Lizzie has done an amazing job creating such a warm home to share with all her guests. Every detail is just impeccable. Lizzie has a wonderful eye for style.

So if you have a trip you'd like to take with 12-16 of your closest friends consider renting the Chateau for a week that will be the best of your life!!
