I am so excited about this tour which explores some of the best, and most French aspects of luxury and tradition here. In 2019 we have this tour available by request for private groups wishing to discover the unexplored in Normandy and Paris.
We are calling this tour Antiques and Luxury because as well as plenty of opportunities to shop for French antiques (including at our favourite Chatou fair) we are also offering some very exclusive activities, all to do with the very best in traditional French living and savoir-faire.
You will fly into Paris, naturally, and be picked up from your hotels in the city and chauffeured throughout the tour. We will spend two glorious days in Normandy together, staying in a very special manor house B&B. Here we will visit the brocantes, buy antiques, take a class in floral design, have a private visit to a 14th century chapel, take a coffee at my house, all while enjoying wonderful meals together.
After these two days, we head to Paris where guests choose their own accommodations for the evenings, to make the most of free time after our daily expeditions.
How does it work?
Guests stay at a hotel of their choice in Paris and are picked up by our private chauffeurs each day, as long as the hotels are located centrally (6eme, 7eme, 1eme or proximity – we can help to recommend hotels). I keep these tours limited to 6 guests to preserve the intimate nature of the experience.
