Champagne

Pick up your favorite bottle for the gift-giving festivities. For your next trip to France, we can plan for a stay in the Champagne region so you can taste and maybe find some new favorites! My favorite Champagne which is easily available internationally is Taittinger's Prestige Rosé. I also love Philippe Martin, but you must come to France to taste it.

The guidebook was great and the suggestion to make an effort to try French was a solid one. I did much better once I got comfortable trying. I will recommend your service to anyone I know thinking at coming …

My wife and I traveled in Provence and Dordogne in early April 2018. Whie the weather was mostly on the rainy/windy side, the trip was so well planned and organized, with so much to see, that we did not pay much attention to the weather. All B&Bs were excellent in terms of accommodation, food (sic!) and very welcoming. All hosts were bi-lingual and …

Her organizational skills are unmatched …
