Through the dark French winter, two Swedish friends (Vicky and Charlie) and I have been dreaming up a sun-filled celebration to welcome summer. We’ve hatched a plan to celebrate the summer solstice in Segur le Chateau, ushering in the warmer months to come in style with a mid-summer soiree. There’ll be drinks, dancing, frivolity, wild costumes, fabulous people, incredible food, laughter and a few surprises. The best news - you are invited!
We are very lucky to have secured perhaps the most stunning home in Segur le Chateau as the venue for the event. Featured in Interiors of the World, and Le secret intérieurs du Limousin, the very private La Chedal will be opening its doors exclusively for us.
The breathtaking lush green gardens filled with contemporary sculptures, ancient trees, a fairy-tale-esque treehouse, and fabulous view of Segur le Chateau, will be the location for a cocktail reception, followed by dinner. Later into the evening the spectacular glass-sided barn will play host to live entertainment, a DJ and charity auction.
We’re raising money for two causes, one local and one international. The first is the beautification of Segur le Chateau. As many of you know the condition of Segur is very close to my heart. Listed as one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France (one of the most beautiful villages in France), Segur is also quite run-down and indeed of some investment in conservation and preservation. Beauty requires investment and a little bit of maintenance. Vicky, Charlie and I are currently discussing specifics of projects with the village officials for concrete options. The second cause is Animals Asia Foundation, a charity devoted to the welfare of wild and urban animals in Asia, as well as the conservation of endangered species.
If you would like further information or tickets, please drop me a line at email@example.com, or post a comment below.
We look forward to seeing some of you in Segur le Chateau.
