I am passionate about organizing great trips with character and unique experiences. This is not only about where the travelers want to travel but how they want to travel. Every trip like every traveler is different and that's what I love about my role, it's to make sure every experience fits the traveler's desire.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I work on creating wonderful trips in my beloved country France but also in other countries of Western Europe (such as the Netherlands, UK, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, etc.). My passion is proposing unique food and wine experiences."
How did you get involved in travel?
"My language studies led me to England and the U.S. and this is where I discovered a real love for anglo-saxon culture. Passionate about travel, culture, meeting nice people and discovering fresh new places, I love giving advice to travelers who dream of visiting my beloved country."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"My road trip in the Western part of the US two years ago was an experience I will never forget. It was this magic mix of meeting great people, the feeling of freedom that the American roads bring you, the incredible shock with pure nature and amazing landscapes, the great adventure I shared with the ones I love and that will always remain. This is what I loved about my travel and what I want the travelers to experience when they come to my country."

Very enjoyable holiday
Sep 17 - Sep 25, 2019

Short, laid back tour of Belgium

Working with Sophie from L'Objectif France was great. She took the time to phone me to ask important questions. She was quick to reply to my questions and requests.

The car transfers arranged in Brussels with Blacklane were superb. Clean, comfortable... read more
