Led by James McDonald
Whether you are travelling alone, with a group or are organising
a journey for a group Sophie can help you with reservations, recommendations
and making the right contacts for your project.
Conferences and Seminars
We provide on the ground assistance you need to succeed in organising
seminars and conferences. We can recommend venues, assist with
making reservations and connect you with the best professional
contacts you will need to pull things of with style.
With our extensive knowledge of all categories of accommodation,
whether you are looking for a five star experience, a genuine
château or a dormitory in a real Monastery, we can help you find
your perfect match. We frequently recommend hotels, Bed and Breakfasts
and the more unusual to our customers and always get it right.
Restaurants & picnics
When visiting an area so rich a tradition of fine ingredients
and regional specialities and with only a few meals out, we think
it is a shame to leave fresh food, local cheeses and a good wine
list to chance. We can point you to the best for authentic food,
good value and spaces ensuring a quality experience and good memory
for each meal of your trip. We also organise outdoor picnics offering
local produce and sun ripened fruits.
Travel, private and public
We provide free travel advice for all our customers and can organise
transport on your behalf, or put you in contact with trusted professionals.
We speak French and are familiar with local considerations, which
are not always easy to anticipate across the language barrier
and cultural differences. We have provided services for a number
of prestigious international organisations and are happy to provide
We are able to hand pick and assist with negotiation for Châteaux
venues, country mansions and other beautiful and historic venues
for your accommodation and events.
We are able to source a number of Châteaux venues, including
our own at the Château
de Saint Ferriol.
