Corinne Preteur of Lifestyle Vacations is truly the BEST! If you are looking for someone to create a personalized, five star gourmet travel experience this is how you need to do it. She is very organized, energetic and truly a pleasure to travel with.
We did a girls trip (4 of us) for 8 days with her through the southwest part of France in September 2014 and it far exceeded my expectations. It was worth every penny! Not only did she guide the tour, she was funny, a true professional and organized activities we would have never been able to facilitate on our own. I travel internationally quite frequently for business and leisure and this was a five star experience. She always went above and beyond, our accommodations were five star and the people and places we foisted were perfectly planned. She is very well connected in France within the gourmet industry.
During our 8 days we visited Bordeaux, Sarlat, Rocamadour, Médoc region, Dordogne Valley, Perigord, Saint-Emillion and much more. We had 3 private cooking classes with Michelin starred chefs as well as the former chef to French President Mitterand and inspiration for the movie Haute Cuisine. Truly Wow experiences!
We also visited over 4 vineyards with private tours and tastings in several regions of France. All restaurants were Michelin starred dining but we also experienced the local side of France through local markets, cafés, private locally ran farms, vineyards etc.
Can’t wait to come back!
