Originally from England, I moved to France when I was very young. I’ve been used to traveling with my family since my young age and I easily adapted to my French frog life (the weather did help…). Passionate about travel, art, fashion and gastronomy, I couldn’t have found a better country to live in. However, loving my country hasn’t stopped me from going abroad and discovering different landscapes and cultures! Traveling is the best school ever and I’m driven to share outstanding areas to our guests.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"There are many extraordinary destinations to visit in France but Paris-Toujours has selected certain areas where we believe our guests can really get the best of France. We commonly sell itineraries to Paris, the heart of our activity but also trips to Provence (Avignon, Gordes, St Rémy…) and in the Loire Valley, famous for its Renaissance castles.
Paris-Toujours offers a large range of activities from food and wine tours in secret places to original ways of visiting classic monuments like Le Louvre or the Opéra Garnier. Down south we specialize in market tours and cooking classes. Cooking what you got from the market is always a great feeling.
We also provide lovely boutique hotels and charming b&b’s so that you can get as much rest as possible to be in grand form the following day."
How did you get involved in travel?
"During my tourism studies I got to know Laurence, the owner of Paris-Toujours agency who shares my vision and who is also very savvy about authentic things to do in France. After a 5 months internship as a project manager and previous work experiences in the traveling industry I knew I wanted to work in this domain. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Taking the car last summer during a hot summers week and driving from Ouest (Poitiers) to the Est of France (Annecy). Annecy is great for hiking through the mountains and swimming in the lac. It is filled with charming colourful streets, markets and lovely restaurants. I then drove down south through amazing villages like Gordes, Avignon, Saint Rémy, Aix-en-Provence, Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Cassis where I jumped off cliffs into the translucid water. Experiencing over 1000 km of outstanding landscapes, mouth-watering smells and walking through cobbled-path streets while tasting fresh local products at different markets is a journey I will never forget!"
