Ode Ledet

Native from Provence, I love to walk the Mediterannean trails in search of peace and new emotions. The charm of this region still surprises me, especially when the seasons change (Spring and Fall are my favourites!). I am delighted to help you discover the most surprising nooks and crannies, the unusual sounds and smells of Southern France.

Beyond my region, I am pleased to offer you unique and personalized trips throughout the different regions of France to experience "The French Art of Living".
After living in Nice, French Riviera, I decided to move to Marseille, nearby the Calanques National Park and the Blue Coast. Now I have one mission: to give you the chance to discover and appreciate the French Riviera and Provence, as well as many other parts of France!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I live in the Var since I was born so I can say that I know pretty much this destination. It has a lot to offer, between earth and sea, the Var is a perfect destination: sunny in summer and winter, with landscapes really different from sea to mountains via the rivers. Also, thanks to my studies, I had the opportunity to live in Nice and now in Marseille thus my knowledge about this destination is constantly growing. I like to take a moment and discover mainly small trails and hikes in the forest but also on the coastline."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I can say that it is a family story. My father, with his job, traveled a lot and even had to move twice to another place. He took us with him and we got used to moving around even without his job. Once I was older, I enjoyed planning our next vacation. It was obvious for me to make it my job to create trips not only for my family and me, but for all those who wish to discover the world and France in particular."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"It's quite a long trip but when I was young, I had the chance to live in Tahiti for 2 years and even though I was very young, it's something I will never forget. The way they live is so simple, so friendly, close, and respectful to nature and it is something incredible. They share their traditions with pleasure and are very proud of them. Moreover, it is a dream destination with a turquoise blue lagoon and breathtaking flora and fauna."
