Exclusive France Tours

Forever in search of something new, I love wandering through France to uncover hidden treasures. Epicurian by nature, I am enthralled by culture in every form, wine (with a special affinity for those from Bourgogne and Rhone valley), gastronomy and anything out of the ordinary.

If you wish to lengthen the pleasure you can stay overnight, take a Nordic bath or relax in an Alpine spa, or go horseback riding, all depending on the season of course!
