Bodie and Fou founders's French family retreat
A gorgeous family home in France is an idyllic retreat for sisters Karine and Elodie Kong, the founders of Bodie and Fou
Posted: 1 September 2011
French sisters Karine and Elodie Kong, along with their partners and children, are a cosmopolitan bunch. Karine lives in west London with her New Zealand-born partner Steve and their four-year-old daughter Mila Sienna. Meanwhile, Elodie lives in Barcelona with her partner Christophe and their five-year-old daughter Lily. They are also the talented duo behind e-boutique and lifestyle brand, Bodie and Fou. Karine runs the online business from a warehouse near her home, while Elodie takes care of what they call the “fun” part of the business, scouring trade shows and art exhibitions to discover the next big thing.
Where they all find common ground is in southwest France at a gorgeous family retreat that was bought and restored by Karine and Steve at around the same time as the sisters launched their website. Located near the Bay of Arcachon in the Gironde, the home is situated in an idyllic spot and is the perfect place for friends and family to gather and unwind.
