France is a small paradise on earth

France is still the world's number one most visited country.

Why? French have been blessed with stunning landscape comprising of Alpine mountains, beautiful meadows, picturesque vineyards and farms, plenty of rivers, spectacular sea coasts and sophisticated Art, cuisine and culture.

Today, the French country side is still attracting many modern designers, painters, art directors, movie producers and developers who live and work there.

I myself often go get some fresh air and some inspiration for my next projects with my family.

If you decide to spend some time in the country side of France, you will be following the footsteps of the great artists:

Claude Monet in Giverny | 1840 - 1926

Van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise | 1853 to 1890

Paris to Vimy Driver

?

The relationship between Canada and France has deeply established roots. As France colonized a portion of Canada in the early 1500s. A growing French population settled on Canada’s Eastern shores.
With the commencement of World War One (WWI) Canadians were called to serve in the name of the British Empire.
French Canadians, although opposed to aiding the British in ‘their’ war, felt an immeasurable respect and duty towards France.
Similarly in World War Two (WWII), French opposition to aiding the British in the war was palpable. French Canadians in particular, once more felt compelled to lend aid to the people of France.

The presence of France in Canada had been for hundreds of years. The bond between the French and French-Canadians remained strong through a shared culture and language.
In French Canada today, diverse measures have been taken to maintain and protect the French ‘original’ language. There more many linguistic ties between 17th century French and Quebecois French.

During D-Day, Canadians were set to rush to Juno Beach in Normandy, France.
Juno Beach was the Allied code name for a 10 km stretch of French coastline.
Canadians endured ceaseless German resistance to their invasion.
The Third Infantry Division took heavy casualties, but managed to take control of the beach by the end of the day.

Pick-up at your hotel in Paris and head to Belgium - Vimy

In summary, I cannot tell you why you should visit France, because it would take me days to explain... and the list is just endless!

France's agriculture is very advanced. France evolves around food.

The culinary schools are always full.  Student come to Paris to learn about the Culinary Arts and get trained on the French service : hotellerie, wine, and restaurants, which makes our country maybe even a leading light in our planet's gastronomy.

Everywhere we drive in France, the landscapes are different and the geography changes : From flat hot plains to high icy mountains, in this country you will many different sceneries.

The flavors of the French cuisines are different from one territory to another.

Many creatives artists, Designers, Celebrities, Actors, famous Cinematographers, Advertisers and Art Directors, producers, writers and journalists contact me with their need to escape Paris for a day or two and find new inspiration.

If you are looking to find your way and open your mind to a new atmosphere of work, I do believe that a trip to France country side will help you, like it helped Leonardo Da Vinci unblock his true potential.

Some of my guests decided to go to the Country side, just to sit and to relax in charming French Hotels and beautiful Chateaux, and enjoy the famous Service à La Française !

Our Territories :

France is rich and owns many spectacular territories.

The territories around Paris are full of charm.

France is still a beautiful and safe country. On my trips, I notice that the French make a continuous effort to preserve our country natural reserves.

From glamorous small cities like Strasbourg, to big towns like Lyon and Bordeaux or charming little villages like Beaunes, we can go and visit most of them following a well-planned itinerary.

Serge was our driver for a private tour and drop off to airport. Clean car, extremely friendly and knowledgeable, even stopped at a local bakery (after I said I was a bit hungry), walked in with me and guided me through the best items to choose from and helped me communicate with the gentleman behind the counter at the bakery. Worth every penny - highly recommend.

If it was possible to give a higher rating, I would do so without hesitation. We’d just arrived in Paris for the first time ever when our driver, Serge, picked us up and instantly put us at ease. He had curated a driving tour to specifically meet our needs and we had an amazing couple of hours driving around with him. He taught us all the essential terms, showed us everything we wanted to see, and didn’t hesitate to answer any of our questions. Despite being jet-legged from the trip, he quickly had us laughing and having an amazing time. We actually ended up running into Serge again at the end of our trip and it was like running into an old friend. We will not hesitate to reach out to him again when we come back in the future!

Serge made our day in Paris as seamless as possible. We did not have to be concerned with getting around to key locations and given the fact our transport to Paris was almost 1 hour late this made so much difference. In combination with his colleague (tour guide) we really saw what made the highlights of Paris. Excellent value if time is tight. Philip, Sydney.

My wife and I had the pleasure of having both Serge and Sam as drivers for the duration of our stay in Paris. Both were phenomenal. From the moment Serge picked us up at CDG to the moment he dropped us off at the end of our trip we were treated with top notch concierge services. Serge and Sam were professional, on time, very helpful with recommendations and a pleasure to be with. They had our itinerary before we arrived and made sure that all logistics worked according to our travel plans. There were a couple of occasions where they took it upon themselves to follow-up with the attraction to make sure we had contingency plans in place. Throughout the trip they made us feel as if we where THE client and not just a client. The trip to Paris was for our 25th anniversary so we wanted it to be special. Mission accomplished! It was an overall wonderful trip in large part to the service we received from Serge and Sam. Thank you both.

I am not even sure where to begin. This team is outstanding. My partner and I went to Paris in October and were picked up at Orly Airport timely. The service en route was great and champagne filled. You get a very personal, concierge style service. Sam and Serge give you suggestions, help you plan your stay, and made our stay much more memorable! I highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking for convenience, top service, and a different experience during their trip. I look forward to my return and using their services again!

My boss and some of our investors came to Paris to see some potential points in the city. Sam was their driver and Serge was arranging everything with me over an email. Everything went smooth and I am very glad that we have chosen their company and next time we will use their service again!

Sam was our driver for my son's wedding, and for touring Paris and Versailles. My group and I all agree that he was incredible. He made our stay in Paris ever so much more enjoyable. We even said that, when we return, we'd schedule the trip just so that we can have Sam be our driver and guide. We absolutely loved him. One of our group had a significant knee injury and required a wheelchair (didn't know that when we booked originally.) Sam came to the rescue!!! He obtained a wheelchair and made sure that we were still able to tour as we hoped. We all just loved Sam. I highly recommend him!

My family and I went on a vacation to Paris last month (August 2021) and we were blessed by Serge’s exceptional service! Him and his team were ALWAYS on time, professional, communicative, and had clean, comfortable vehicles. Truly above and beyond service, we couldn’t have asked for a better transportation experience. Not only did we discover the best transportation service in Paris, but great friendships too! Do not hesitate when booking this company. Thank you Serge and your wonderful team!
