French Country Adventures Shows Women the ‘Other’ South of France

Last updated on September 14th, 2021

Discover the art of slow travel in France

The art of traveling slowly offers an opportunity to engage deeply, and experience a different way of life, the whole point of travel in the first place.

French Country Adventures offers deluxe, 10 day, slow travel tours through Gascony, the Pays Basque, Occitanie, and beyond, for individuals and small groups, from early spring until late fall.

Join me in Southwest France, where I live, for an intimate portrait of French rural life. You’ll discover the unique history, medieval villages, time-honored traditions, rustic gastronomy, regional wines, and time-honored traditions of this unspoiled paradise, which has all the charms, but none of the crowds.
