Scenes from our Simply French Tour ~ 2014

 As many of you already know, I own a boutique touring company that caters to women only. Not that I have anything against men, but occasionally gals just want to travel by themselves or with close friends. We are unique as we only take six guests on each trip. All one has to do is show up and the rest is taken care of..... It is a Four Star trip all the way! These are photos from the October trip to Paris and into the countryside, south of Paris ~

                                                           A walk down the Champs Elysees

                                             A lovely drive in the countryside~yes, flowers blooming in the fall!

                            Beautiful drives through the countryside and lots of history lessons!

                                                                 French garden touring

                                            Visiting as many Chateaux as we possible can!

                             You are looking at fresh celery.......huge stalks and luscious color!

                           This is one of the rooms where my guests stay ~simply enchanting!

                              We were able to do wine tastings and get into the vineyards for a first hand look!

 And then we did a little cooking~hoping to remember all the special techniques we were taught!

 Nothing as breathtaking as French floral arrangements!

We spent time at local markets, enjoying the crowds, the flowers, foods and the little critters! Ahhh!

Looks like a fabulous trip and there's no doubt in my mind that all of the ladies had a wonderful experience. I've never seen celery growing. It's nothing like I thought it would be.

Happy holidays,

Looks like all of you had a great time. Have you looked into booking a group into Mimi Thorisson's new place in the Medoc? Check out what she is offering at Manger if you haven't already. Would love to join you some time. Penny

This looks fantastic -- a friend of mine from Olympia used to run similar tours and she also only took women!

Beautiful photos! The countryside in the fall has a special beauty.
