This indulgent private tour of France offers the ultimate experience of one of the world’s most iconic culinary destinations. Enjoy in-depth private cultural and gastronomic touring while staying at the country’s most beautiful and luxurious hotels and resorts. Also gain insider access to some of the finest cuisine and wines in France (and the world) while luxuriating in the sophistication of Paris, the rustic beauty of Beaujolais, and the romantic landscapes of Provence and the Cote d’Azur.

Begin with three nights in Paris. With your sophisticated expert guide, enjoy a private culinary tour of the city according to your interests. Experience epicurean delights at local markets, pastry shops, cheese shops, chocolate stores, tea salons and more. Shop for specialty kitchen utensils, fine tableware and upscale table linens at leading French retailers. One day, take a private lesson in either French baking or French cooking with an expert instructor. Also enjoy private touring of top cultural attractions according to your interests, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral and more. In the evenings, reservations will be made for you at favorite neighborhood bistros, refined brasseries and fine-dining restaurants serving traditional French haute cuisine and innovative contemporary gastronomy.

Next, take a TGV high-speed train to Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France, to see Roman ruins, explore the centuries-old network of traboules (hidden passageways) and perhaps enjoy a lunch of Lyonnais delicacies such as delicate poached fish quenelles at one of the country's best restaurants. Continue to the nearby Beaujolais wine region, and spend two nights at the spectacular Chateau de Bagnols, a meticulously restored 13th-century castle hotel surrounded by gardens and orchards. One afternoon, enjoy a private tour of nearby vineyards, wineries and villages. For dinner, try classic Burgundian dishes such as escargots a la Bourguignonne and coq au vin paired with carefully selected local wines.

Next, transfer to Provence, an enchanting region where fragrant olive oil, aromatic herbs and sun-ripened Mediterranean produce form the backbone of the revered local culinary tradition. Spend one night at luxury hotel with a renowned restaurant in historic Avignon. Then, transfer to the idyllic Luberon Valley for two nights at a luxury farmhouse hotel set among vineyards and farmland. Enjoy private touring in picturesque Provencal villages, as well as visits to specialty food shops, wineries and cultural sites. Along the way, stop at daily markets to mix with locals buying seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh and dried herbs such as thyme and lavender,  and flavorful dips and spreads such as tapenade (olives), anchoiade (anchovies) and caviar de poivrons (bell pepper).  

Conclude with three nights on the stylish Cote d'Azur in a luxurious hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. With a private driver-guide at your disposal, visit the most interesting local towns, such as Nice, Cannes, Eze, Grasse, Saint-Paul de Vence, Antibes or Monaco. Browse high-end shops, discover medieval backstreets, and visit local wineries, markets and museums. Stop to savor favorite street foods such as socca (a chickpea-flour pancake), local pastries such as the orange flower-scented tarte Tropezienne and elegant meals featuring fresh seafood caught nearby.
