Hang onto your beret: our 2016 trip dates are almost here! We love any excuse to go to France and nothing makes us happier than gathering a group of like-minded women and escorting them to Paris and Provence.
We’re excited to offer a selection of trips that hopefully appeal to lots of you. If you adore the thrill of the hunt and obsess over anything Louis XV or XVI, then join us for one of our Paris buying trips. Haven’t spent enough taking in Paris’s amazing sights followed by five days relaxing in the countryside? Then Paris and Provence is for you. Want to get to know Provence? We got that, too. And finally, if your idea of fun is painting en plein air with expert tutoring from artist Nancy Franke, then you might enjoy our Painting In Provence trip.
We’re announcing our 2016 dates on September 8th so stay tuned to the website.
Why do we love our trips so much? Six years into them and one thing is sure: we never get tired of is watching friendships blossom and grow.
Is it the sense of adventure that comes with being in a new and different environment? Check. Is it the wine-tinged lunches and dinners? Check, check. Soaking up the magic of Paris at night? Oui. Is it the hours of relaxed chatting and animated conversation on a Provencal terrace after a delish dinner of locally-sourced ingredients? Absolutely!
We love how wildly different personalities can instantly gel. We’ve toured with stay-at-home moms, physicians, lawyers, interior designers and business owners and the story is the same: at the end of the trip, there are plentiful new friendship and connections that have been made. And don’t get us started about the artists who join us on our Provence painting workshops! What began as artists meeting each other for the first time has turned into a fast and furious group that loves to travel and paint together.
And even if your besties aren’t free to travel with you, no worries. We guarantee you’ll make friends for life!
