Now in paperback, this book is a gorgeous celebration of  warm, intimate and quintessentially French country retreats.


Epitomizing what the French call l''art de vivre (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, left-over brocades and wallpapers-even libraries hidden at the tops of towers. The French Country House is rich with the colors, texture, and histories of these treasured homes. 

Christiane de Nicolay-Mazery, an auctioneer, collector, and journalist, specializes in French art de vivre and the history of old families. Her books include The Finest Houses of Paris and The French Chateau: Lifestyle and Tradition.
