Description

The French Country House celebrates what the French call lart de vivre (the art of good living) within the intimacy of private dwellings set deep in the countryside. These are places of retreat old manor houses, small chateaux, stud farms, even a former convent that, because of their great age and the memories accumulated inside them, are beloved by their owners and provide endless delight for family and friends.

With 220 photographs in full colour illustrating rooms from the salon to the kitchen below and the attic above, together with details of silver, crystal, tapestries, paintings, and much more, The French Country House is rich in the colours, textures and history of these treasured homes. Francophiles as well as lovers of decor, architecture, and gardens will be captivated by this inside look at life in the French countryside.
