This super-sized family – Cécile, Hugo and their five children – regularly jump into their old Merc and head from Bordeaux to Cap Ferret on the Atlantic coast. They spend their time enjoying dinner with friends, surfing together as a family and picking herbs and seasonal produce from their own garden. Their home has a real fairytale feel with its splashes of colourful wood… it’s a bohemian paradise that the Beach Boys would have been perfectly at home in!
Victor, Cécile, Oscar, Hugo, Marguerite & Emilie, BIG FAMILY… HAPPY FAMILY
“ Our friends often turn up unannounced… so we have to improvise! When you have your own friends and your children’s friends all together, you’ve got a lot of mouths to feed. But we’re used to knocking something together for 15 people at short notice! I love improvising and creating new dishes with whatever we have in the kitchen. And if we’re really stuck, hugo always has his speciality up his sleeve: Thai-style seafood.”
When the whole family arrives and she needs to seat many more than seven, Cecile chose the Luxembourg range. It's dead easy to put tables together and add chairs and armchairs. Coordinating your seating area and its dresser with the whole dining set is the height of elegance.
