The Magnificent baronial mansion was built between 1874 and 1889 for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the neo-renaissance style of a French chateau by the architect Gabriel-Hippolyte Destailleur. Waddesdon is one of my favourite places to visit at any time of the year and on this particularly glorious Spring day it's positively-glowing, honey-coloured Cotswold stone façade was to prove the perfect foil for a French market that had landed on its doorstep.
Anyone who was anyone was there.......
Monsieur Canard & Monsieur Grande Fromage
Monsieur Brioche Fraîche & Monsieur Chou-fleur
& the lovely Madame Pâtisserie
Then, right on cue, the ever punctual Hercules arrived in the balloon to whisk me off home, away from my French chateau shopping adventure in the middle of the English countryside .
If that has whet your appetite then stick around, we will be returning to show you a few of the other delights and surprises at Waddesdon Manor later in the season. x
