I'm a native of France, fortunate to have lived and worked in this magnificent country for 25 years, and I return here at least twice a year to visit family and friends. I can honestly say: Je connais la France! I know France! As an established travel professional planning your trip, my desire is for you to know and love this wonderful destination (almost) as much as I do. This is my passion. When I visit France, I inspect hotel and resort properties, check out new restaurants and local attractions, take tours, and make sure that I remain current on politics, fashion, shopping and French dining. Each region is very different from another and I have spent considerable time exploring and learning about each one, so that I can share my first-hand knowledge with you. As a French native, with a background in the arts, I have an "insider's" familiarity with my country and how best to enjoy it.
What sets me apart as an expert on the destinations of France and the United Kingdom are not only my three decades of experience as a destination specialist, but my knowledge and personal experiences of visiting, researching and learning about each of these two destinations different regions. I know the most efficient and fun ways to visit - via an escorted tour, private independent travel arrangements, river cruises, train travel, private vehicle, and/or air. Because of my long-time experience visiting and learning about France and the UK, I have developed and maintained valuable on-the-ground contacts who I depend on to keep me current on any new hotel properties, restaurants, attractions and /or events that would be of interest to you.

Vive la France! My passion for France blossomed while living here in college, pursuing my love of the French language and art history. During that time, I became enamored with their culture, history and the French way of life. Not only do I speak fluent French and am certified as a French Destination Specialist, but I continue to visit extensively, always learning something new. Since France's efficient rail system connects Paris to unforgettable beaches, chateaux, vineyards, ski resorts and old quaint hilltop villages within hours, I have enjoyed the nuances of language, cuisine and perspective throughout France and encourage my clients to do the same. My insatiable appetite to explore Paris and the country's many regions only enhances my experience and confidence to curate creative itineraries. I love sharing my passion for all things French!

I continue to be drawn back to this compelling destination. To me, France feels like "home" as I grew up in New Orleans. In the last 3 years, I have traveled north from Paris along the Seine to the beaches of Normandy, spent time in Bordeaux, and traveled through the quaint towns of Provence along the Rhône and the Saône Rivers. One of my favorite ways to visit France is on a river cruise, as it takes you away from the larger cities and sights, and ensures that you become immersed in the romance and lifestyle of medieval times. Most recently, I experienced a wine and culinary voyage down the Rhône and Saône Rivers. What made this itinerary so special is that I spent a couple days in Arles prior to embarkation and experienced this town "just like a local."
I love France! And every time I have traveled here over the past 25 years, my knowledge and passion have grown. What sets me apart from my competition are multiple factors. First, I love the French language and make time to be proficient. Next, I make sure I learn something new on every trip, and at the same time, continue to build and maintain solid professional relations with my colleagues on the ground. I know France and I know how to creatively design and implement an itinerary that will match - and exceed your every expectation. I've explored each region of this country by foot, train, and self-drive, plus enjoyed three river cruises, and even one hotel barge cruise! I look forward to sharing with you just what sets France apart from all other countries.
I love this country! I love everything about French culinary experiences, local village market days, French artisan shops, fine vineyards and of course... stunning French chateaus. To make your visit here especially grand, I recommend a visit to the Left Bank where Hemingway and Fitzgerald frequented Harry's Bar. I've been traveling here for twenty years and with each return visit, I learn, explore and become more thoroughly immersed in the culture - making each visit a truly unique experience.
