 1  Elizabeth Moonturtle Provence in September 2009 2009-12-29
This was my first real vacation and I was planning on traveling alone. I did a lot of research and found a tour Coordinator named Jacqueline Grandchamps owner ... view more of M16013.

My vacation was more than I dreamed of, this was the best thing I ever did for myself. Her tour offered me exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to be with a small group, I had an 8 day stay in a beautiful 18th Century Inn, access to many Provence attractions and lots of interaction with local businesses, people and cuisine.

I had so much fun. I felt safe, cared for and like a guest of France. The Inn provided a great atmosphere to rest and relax after my daily adventures. Jackie designed a fantastic tour and nothing about the trip disappointed me. My only complaint was that it was only 8 days and I couldn\'t stay for a month.

I would highly recommend M16013 for anyone wanting a memorable vacation and an authentic experience celebrating the beauty of France.

Merci!

"What sets the French Escapade apart from all the other painting trips I have taken is the pace is so relaxed. We come home every evening to our lovely ... view more home after our day's adventures and are welcomed with yummy cooking smells, delicious aperitifs and then an incredible dinner. We critique what we did that day and discuss our plans for the next day before bed. Next morning we are greeted with a wonderful French breakfast and great coffee and Valerie sends us off with our packed lunches, and Jackie drives us to another fabulous painting sight. It is like being part of a French family, not at all like being a tourist running from place to place, packing and un-packing staying in hotels eating in restaurants etc. The view from the guesthouse is outstanding; we could even stay there and not go anywhere else for paintings. 2008 will be my second French Escapade and one of the participants is also coming for her second time so that gives an idea of how enjoyable this trip is."

From the moment we connected at the airport, I felt myself relax! Jackie and Valerie attended to every detail of making the trip safe, educational, ... view more entertaining, and country-French authentic. Yet they did it with a kind of grace and that felt like each person's needs and tastes were important, and respected. It was so refreshing to just surrender to the beauty of the place, and to their special charms and TLC. We all wanted to live there forever, or, lacking that, take them both home with us. Dream on, dream on

We were on a motorcycle tour of southern Italy. Although there have been many wonderful moments on the trip so far, it has been a disappointment because you ... view more have spoiled us on your tours. We had never done a tour before we traveled with you, and we will never do another tour unless it's with you. We always appreciated all the hard work you put into your tour, but now, we REALLY appreciate it, having experienced what it's like on a "non-French Escapade" tour! Oh, how I wish you were here with us!
