So Frenchy So Chic - Melbourne
This event seems a wonderful match of venue and entertainment. Our heritage
homes can often be pigeonholed as places for historic re-enactments, but they
are very young in European terms and were usually created as places to entertain
and host cultural activities.
So Frenchy So Chic provides the opportunity to
picnic with choice deli foods, entertain the kids, dance on the grass listen
to French bands and all in civilised surroundings. 30-somthings with
children and a taste for the good life - this is particularly for you.
