ANAIS BROCHIERO / CRT - SAINT PAUL DE VENCE LE 29/04/2009 - la Mairie de Saint-Paul a engagé un long travail de restauration de la Chapelle des Pénitents blancs  décorée et imaginé par Folon.


Julia, Chloe, Amy and Sarah, who have been friends for a long time, share a common passion for art. Despite they traveled often together, they never had a chance yet to go to France. This is how they came to us with the wish to get a tailor-made art tour in Provence. Indeed, they wanted to experience the true Provence lifestyle, while focusing on their strong interest in art. Thus, together, we planned every detail to create an unforgettable journey, following the footsteps of major artists who lived there. And we also wanted to reveal the lively, joyful and fascinating culture of this superb region. We went far beyond the traditional clichés and managed to make them “feel” and “look” in the same way as some renowned painters did. This inspiring trip will stay forever engraved in their memories!

Marie Tesson had created for us in November 2017 a tailor made journey around vineyard in the Burgundy region.Our clients from different cultures and backgrounds but all of them with high expectations were absolutely delighted.Ms. Tesson did a great job, her knowledge, her skills and her capacity to listen and to adapt were key factors for the success of our journey.I highly recommend Ms. Tesson to any client who wishes a high quality event.
Hi Marie,We had a delightful time! Thank you very much for designing a great tour. We particularly enjoyed the olive oil tour/tasting, truffle hunting, and cooking class. Thibault was a fantastic tour guide, too. I particularly appreciated his flexibility and patience with us. (…) Again, we had a lovely time and appreciate your effort for making our vacation great. I already miss Provence!
Highly recommend. I am not easily impressed, but Marie managed the impossible throughout our entire Champagne experience. She was able to secure private and exclusive access to prestigious houses, which is a privilege reserved only for major distributors and celebrities. Each visit was unique, exclusive, educational and delicious. Looking forward to working with her to explore the rest of France.
