Paul Personne Concert - France

Paul Personne is an icon in France for his music. It's actually quite good. We saw him twice in concert. This was the best. Enjoy the music!

2017 Tour Schedule - Best of French Alps and Provence OR French Alps Tours

2017 Tour Schedule:

Our newest and most popular tour is the 'Best of Provence and the French Alps Tour.' See two of the most beautiful regions of France in one tour. From majestic mountains to crystal clear lakes, you will come to love the breathtaking alpine views. The colors of Provence with its lavender fields, blue shutters and red ochre hills will enchant you. The cuisine is excellent too, as experienced by our cheese and wine tastings and dinner at a Michelin Star restaurant. The history will seduce you with the regions’ Architecture and Art, Old Towns, Roman Ruins, and Medieval hilltop villages. If that wasn’t enough, see pastures filled with colorful flowers while listening to the sounds of Alps cow bells, or fields of green by a famous Abbey.

June 10 - 17, 2017                                                    


Our 'French Alps Tours' is a favorite for photographers and lovers of beauty. Wander the medieval town of Annecy, nicknamed the Venice of the French Alps, and take a boat ride on its crystal blue lake. Are you a foodie? Taste chocolates, cheeses, wines, local liquors, and hazelnut oils at local tasting events and regional producers. Eat the local specialties of the region prepared by your private Chef at the Chalet Lodge, and cooked by the award-winning Chef at your French Chateau, with a final dinner at a Michelin Star restaurant.  Impressed by stunning views? See the world from a 12,600 foot mountain or from Europe's second steepest funicular.

Are you the adventurous type? Schedule a paragliding jump with your instructor off an Alps mountain.  Love history or architecture?  Then satisfy your curiosity at Lyon's Old Town, French Resistance Museum, or Yvoire's medieval streets, or just enjoy watching the paragliders and sunset at an outdoor aperitif on the top of a mountain overlooking Annecy's lake. 

September 16 - 23, 2017

Sur Mesure Restaurant, Paris France

We were sent as 'mystery shoppers/eaters' to Sur Mesure, a Michelin Star restaurant located at a 5 Star Hotel in Paris. We had a 75 Euros lunch (there was also a choice of a 150 Euro lunch). We were to evaluate the food, service and decor. The cuisine is 'molecular cooking' which I did not find appealing. The service however was exceptional.  Really fascinating experience!
