Experience France

THE WAY YOU’VE ALWAYS DREAMED

Expectations are wonderful things. And when your experience exceeds your expectations, well, it’s downright enchanting. Whether you’re dreaming about Paris, Provence, or Perpignan (or you aren’t quite sure where you want to go just yet), you and I will begin our conversation at the same place:

Tell me…when did France capture your imagination?

Was it a scene from a classic movie or novel, a familial link? Perhaps France has been calling you back since your first visit as a young adult on a whirlwind tour. Maybe it’s been a slow-burn over a lifetime – imagining yourself sipping something delicious at a café once frequented by Hemmingway, Picasso, or Beauvoir. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to hike the Camino de Santiago

Regardless of how or when France captured your imagination, her allure is undeniable and enduring. In 2019 she drew a record-breaking 90 million foreign visitors.

Will 2021 be your year to discover la Belle France?

Perhaps with a scene from a classic movie or novel, a familial link to France, a postcard from a friend visiting Paris? Maybe she’s been calling you back since your first visit as a young adult on a whirlwind tour.

Maybe it’s been a slow-burn over a lifetime – imagining yourself someday strolling along the Seine, or sipping a glass of something delicious at a café once frequented by Hemmingway, Voltaire, Picasso, or Beauvoir. Perhaps it’s a pilgrimage the grave of Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Chopin, or Marie Curie.

Regardless of how or when France captured your imagination, her allure is undeniable and enduring. In 2019 she drew a record-breaking 90 million foreign visitors.

Will 2021 be your year to discover la Belle France?

France t’attend.

FRANCE is waiting for you.

Are you ready to take the leap, but aren’t sure where to start? There’s so much information out there, and honestly, a lot of it isn’t very accurate or practical.

There’s a lot to consider, and the stakes are high. If you’ve got two weeks of hard earned vacation time set aside the last thing you want to do is squander it on disappointing experiences or costly mistakes. If you’re looking to move abroad or buy a second home in France the to-do list and potential pitfalls are even greater.

Don’t speak French? Worried about jet lag? Heard the French don’t like Americans? Not sure how much to realistically budget? Wondering where you can find the best deals and what’s worth a bit of a splurge? How to know what not to miss and what to skip?

What if you had the help of a guide who speaks the language, understands the nuances of traveling in France and can help you step-by-step to determine the best time to go, where to stay, what to see and do, how to find great restaurants wherever you are, how to maximize your time and budget?
