Thanksgiving and Storytelling Weekend

at the Chateau de Percey

November 24th – 26th

 

           Again this year a Storied Thanksgiving weekend will be held at the beautiful Chateau de Perceywith grounds that feature a fountain, moat, trampoline, a maze or labyrinth (think “Alice in Wonderland”), animals, swimming pool and more. View photos HERE. I would be delighted to share with you this wonderful American holiday of Thanksgiving in this beautiful setting.
          
The idea is to arrive on Friday and stay until Sunday. However, I will be there from Wednesday to start preparing and cooking and staying until Monday if you wish to come earlier and/or stay later. There are four beautifully appointed gites or apartments (details below) available with all the modern conveniences, and with spacious salons and fully equipped kitchens. The main feature will be Thanksgiving Dinner served on Saturday (menu below) in the main hall followed by a Storytelling Evening and Talent Show (sign-ups open). Need accompaniment??? Not a problem as my good friends (and professional musicians) Barbara, on the piano and Mike, on acoustics can play ANYTHING and are available throughout the weekend to rehearse. Other ideas…poetry reading, singing, playing an instrument, skit, improv, charades, jokes, karaoke, dancing…the sky is the limit! A piano is available. Be sure to bring any instruments, props, costumes etc. Friday will feature a moonlight night tour of the castle grounds that will take you through the maze/labyrinth (see photo above). Those who find their way out (hee hee) can also join a more complete day tour of the castle, grounds and nearby church (behind castle) on Saturday morning. Sunday features a Treasure Hunt that will take you all around the castle grounds.
            
The gites or apartments are all self-contained with salons and fully equipped kitchens. On Friday you will be arriving at various times so the idea is to gather at the fireplace between 20:30-21:00 for the Welcome (light refreshments served) followed by a night grounds tour. Re: getting there see below, is easy and I can arrange pick-up from train station (Saint-Florentin – Vergigny) which is a 10-minute drive. All reservations need to be confirmed by latest November 18th. Please refer to this link www.chateaupercey.com for photos, description of rooms, amenities, things to do in the area etc.. There are only accommodations for 30 and there has been a lot of interest so best to reserve sooner than later.        
             Hope you can come to share a celebration of an American Thanksgiving at a French chateau.

                                                     Yours in turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie,
