LUXURY HOLIDAYS IN GRAND-EST
WE TAKE YOU THERE
Our tailor-made luxury holidays in France in the Grand Est region – cradle of the art of crystal, champagne and a rich wine tradition – have been designed to deepen the discovery of this region, geographically small but immense by its history, its diversity and its know-hows.
Follow the champagne bubbles through the maze of underground cellars and “les Crayères” tunnels, dug in the chalk, classified as World Heritage Site; explore the Alsatian vineyard from vine to wine; lose yourself in the breathtaking panoramas of the Vosges biosphere reserve. Our travel experts are always on hand to give you personal recommendations and create the itinerary that suits you, whether you want to explore centuries-old traditional skills in the service of luxury or take a forest bath or bask in the pure waters of the Park des Ballons des Vosges.
ALSACE – LORRAINE
Alsace Lorraine, crossroads of Europe, is rich in remarkable natural spaces, internationally recognized savoir-faire of excellence, exceptional architectural heritage – the best testimony of the Germanic imperial architecture (which practically no longer exists in Germany) preserved from its various attachments to the German Empire. We create your exceptional custom luxury itinerary, through a multitude of treasures to explore, whether through vineyards and traditional villages, discovering the ancestral and innovative work of the vine in the company of winegrowers or through its rich history from Romans to Imperial Germany with our expert historians, without forgetting to taste the best Baeckeoffe, an essential regional specialty.
We take you to the Vosges mountains, packed with generous forests, low mountains, lakes, waterfalls for immersive, energetic and culturally rich forays into this wild and healthy place also classified as the best region in France for cross-country skiing. We will draw a tailor-made itinerary adapted to each of your desires and needs, whether it is a road trip along the breathtaking bends of the Route des Crêtes, a hike to the top of the Grand Ballon, a helicopter touring to discover the Vosges summits or an experience of pure relaxation in the water sources of the Vosges mountains.
CHAMPAGNE – ARDENNES
We offer you private access to the emblematic world of Champagne: to its most spectacular cellars among the 250 kilometers of Gallo-Roman chalk cellars that hide millions of bottles in the underground depths; not only to the big names and houses but to some independent winegrowers, whose work is worth that of the most famous names.
