Thanksgiving at the Chateau de Percey
November 24th – 26th
DETAILS & RSVP HERE
Storytelling Evenings typically are once a month in Paris. However, at Thanksgiving an entire weekend is held at the beautiful Chateau de Percey with grounds that feature a fountain, moat, trampoline, a maze or labyrinth, swimming pool and more. View photos HERE. I would be delighted to share this wonderful American holiday of Thanksgiving in this beautiful setting. Singles, couples and families last year hailed from London, Ireland, Holland, Texas, California, and a slew from Paris with many Tbirds, Toastmasters and friends. A good time was had by all.
The Thanksgiving weekend kicks off on Friday evening around the majestic fireplace followed by a moonlight tour of the castle grounds and maze/labyrinth (hopefully no one gets lost!). Saturday offers a more complete tour in the light of day. As well, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, you are welcome to help prepare the evening meal and festivities as the main feature is a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner (menu HERE). It doesn’t end there as the Storytelling begins and a Talent Show follows....singing, playing an instrument, poetry reading, skit, improv, charades, jokes, karaoke, dancing…the sky is the limit and a piano is available! Sunday features a Treasure Hunt to the four corners of the castle grounds.
The castle has beautifully appointed gites or apartments with spacious salons and fully equipped kitchens. Location is 90 minutes from Paris by train/car. View Chateau de Percey HERE for photos, description of rooms, amenities, things to do in the area etc.. Accommodations limited with a few rooms left. Questions? Don't hesitate to contact me at 06 33 41 70 01. Reservations need to be confirmed by November 19th. Hope you can come to share a celebration of an American Thanksgiving at a French chateau.
