When you are ready to retire for the evening or just take a short siesta, you will find that your luxurious stateroom reflects authentic French elegance and sophistication. A minibar and private bathroom in each suite complement the comfortable accommodations.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
