Join our webinar to meet four best-selling authors

While a book makes a perfect travel companion, traveling with its author is even better. All of that is possible with a new travel concept developed by Nancy McGee of Absolutely Southern France that brings women together on trips with best-selling authors — including Patricia Sands, Jules Larimore, Steena Holmes and Cheryl Jamison. Hosted against the stunning backdrops of France and Italy – two of the world’s most desirable destinations – McGee hopes to bring beloved places to life in new ways for her clients.

“Traveling with a celebrity adds a touch of glamour to an already rich cultural experience,” says Nancy McGee, Founder, Absolutely Southern France. “Our France and Italy tours are carefully curated with the author to ensure no day is ever the same. Even if you’re not familiar with the author’s works, the days will be filled with memorable experiences such as exploring historical sites, participating in culinary workshops and wine tastings, browsing the markets for local crafts and even being a source of inspiration for the author’s next novel.”
