French Riviera’s backcountry luxury family adventure

A unique family adventure in the South of France

A family wished to visit the South of France for a few days and enjoy a luxury break focused on nature and immersive child-friendly experiences.

Since they had a short time to allow to their trip, we suggested a base in Nice, the colorful capital of the French Riviera, for its plethora of activities within the city or in its peaceful hinterland. Indeed, it does not take long from Nice to go for an off the beaten path outdoor adventure in the wonderful Mercantour National Park and get closer to Mother Nature.

We also made sure to add enough gourmet hints for the children to be VERY happy! We created a combination of moments of fun and amazement for them: a pure delight for both parents and children!

Major scenes

An exclusive workshop in a famous ice cream parlor with one of the best ice cream makers of the country. Certainly a delicious and eye opening experience: chocolate and strawberries indulgence…

The privileged visit of a renowned perfume house followed by a workshop with the master perfumer to create their own perfume.

An unforgettable scenic flight over the Alpes de Haute Provence to reach the Mercantour National Park.

A guided hike with a naturalist guide to wander amongst hidden trails of the Park; a meeting with a wolf keeper to learn about the habits of this fascinating creature; a one of a kind encounter with the wolves; an enchanting night walk to feel small under the starry skies.

An exploration day in the hill perched villages with also an intimate discovery of a goat cheese farm in the middle of stunning surroundings.

Clients reviews

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.
