The French touch in fashion, decoration, cuisine and craftsmanship is admired around the world.

The French have a knack for tapping into their past and are always reinventing styles by playing with a mix of eras, materials and colours.

 The fair will provide an opportunity to look at the revival of French chic, appreciated throughout the world, and to celebrate the return of the classic, enlivened by contemporary touches.

 The 94th Foire de Chatou will pay tribute to French taste, that spirit that foreigners envy us. For this year’s fair, Sharon Santoni, an Englishwoman living in Normandy whose blog, My French Country Home, is followed by thousands of English-speaking subscribers on social networks, will act as a guide to the most beautiful flea market in France and help us decipher the origins of French charm.

 This gathering of antique dealers, a veritable ephemeral village, has been taking place in the rural atmosphere of the Island of the Impressionists since 1970. Organised by the SNCAO-GA, the Foire de Chatou is the largest flea market and antiques fair in France, an institution that brings together 500 merchants from all over France and attracts 35,000 visitors over 12 days.
