Wild animals...

The Southern French Alps is one of the wildest areas in France.
The Alps are home to a breathtaking wild life and many animal species, from the iconic to the reclusive. Due to its predominantly alpine landscapes it is home to Ibex, marmots, chamois, Lynx, wolves, mouflon, and Golden eagles. Thanks to protective measures, populations of wild animals are making a comeback in the Alps and can often be observed frolicking in their habitat.

Rich traditions...

During your holidays in the Alps, discover the historical influence of human presence, the rich diversity of cultures, their different languages and traditions.

Every year it is nearly 600 sheep and goats who are gathered in the village of Chapelle in this beautiful Valley. This celebration takes usually place around the beginning of October and then a goat eating fest continues for the rest of the month. Since the beginning the goats are cooked in a big cooking pot for at least 4 hours. Numerous dishes and specialties will be on the menu in many local restaurants throughout October.

Marie, we are back to Monaco and I’m writing to you to say thank you for a great day we spend at Vougeot. All our friends are absolutely happy with the experience at this beautiful countryside of Bourgogne. The Citroen driving is definitely something, that we never tried before and it was so much fun! All our group and me personally would like to thank you Marie for a wonderful journey 😊 We plan to visit Bretagne in the end of May for my husband birthday, would you be interested to organize another trip for us? Hope you've got back home safely, maybe we could meet in Nice for a coffee sometimes 😉 Best regards,

What a trip! The honeymoon was wonderful, and planned incredibly well, we can’t think of anything wrong. The detail on the itinerary was perfect and the guides were outstanding. Everyone was very knowledgeable and easy going. The special tours and lunches were just that, very special. Lots of memories to keep! Thank you again for helping me plan a successful honeymoon. I look forward to the next trip. We will contact you for any France trips in the future. Thanks!

I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you so much for our wonderful tour. We all enjoyed every minute of it. In fact we were struggling to pinpoint what was our favourite moment as it was all perfect. Christine was such a lovely and knowledgeable person with great humour, she kept us entertained and we now know a lot of French history. So fascinating 😊 And Vincent was just wonderful, he attended to our needs perfectly and we enjoyed his company too. So definitely 14 very happy ladies who didn’t want to return home. (The weather was fabulous too!) Many thanks again!
