Lyon and the south-eastern side of France are reknowned for its vineyards, countryside, alpine peaks, and provincial scenery. Experience the real France, off the beaten path. Fully adapted to your interests, expectations and needs.

How does it work?

We accompany you on your journey from day one by advising you on each aspect of your trip. After a first conversation with one of our travel experts, we create a unique travel itinerary meeting your exact criteria. You are free to create your own custom package, choose one of our premade packages or to modify a premade package to better fit what you desire.

We understand that each client is unique and has distinctive requests. We accommodate solo travelers, couples, larger families, and families with young children. We offer three, four and five star options, allowing us to best conform to your budget.
