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.

We want to thank you and Guillaume for a wonderful itinerary and such amazing personalized attention. Every touch was added with so much special care and your willingness to answer all of my questions in such detail ahead of time was truly amazing.

For our journey in the Loire Valley, we could not have hoped for more gracious, firendly and hospitable hosts. They made us feel like long time friends. It has been wonderful sharing this time with this French family and we hope we may meet again. The guidebook was totally professional and indispensable ! Aurevoir et merci beaucoup
