Because it is so important to us that our travelers feel a warm French welcome while traveling in France, we have a meticulous selection process for hand-picking the B&Bs and activities we include in our package itineraries.

Emilie & Laura Selection Process

A first selection is made through our French network. We consider about 300 new accommodation and activities every year and only select about 20 to 30 of them. 

We check that the hosts or guides can speak conversational English

Each accommodation is personally visited by Laura & Emilie and we make sure that it meets our requirements regarding the location, the quality of the welcome, the level of comfort.

Also the place needs to have a "something special".

Each activity is also tested by us. We take the tours, test the guides, taste the food, etc...not the most difficult part of the job. 

Each year, we go on several exploratory trips to meet with all our partners and look for new tips and hints, to make sure you will get the most up-to-date information.

The 300 odd page personalised guide book with maps, times and distances, restaurants on route and at our destinations, recommended places to visit on route and the accomodation itself and hosts at each location were …

What a wonderful trip with personal guides Emilie planned for us! I would recommend her without reservation on your trip through Normandy, Mt St. Michel and the Loire Valley. The guidebook, which was chock full of important information (be sure to read it all!) was invaluable to us and became our bible.
