Epitomizing what the French call l’art de vivre, or “the art of good living,” The French Country House is a breathtaking invitation to share the charm of these private countryside dwellings. Here are beloved places of retreat--old manor houses, small chateaus, stud farms, even a former convent--that, because of their great age and accumulated memories, provide endless delight for family and friends. Each country house is a treasure trove of history, with beautiful furnishings as well as family albums, faded love letters, attics full of old toys, fancy dresses, retired pianos, leftover brocades and wallpapers--even libraries hidden at the tops of towers. This book is rich with the colors, texture, and histories of these treasured homes.
