About your itinerary

? Don't forget that if something isn't quite right we can make changes to the itinerary.
It was a pleasure to speak to you last week and start mapping out your dream trip to France!
I am therefore delighted to present this stunning adventure, which takes in Versailles, Lyon, Provence and Nice. You will have car hire from Versaille to give you the freedom to discover France at your own pace, and I have included some suggestions for the best places to stop off at along the way. 
Of course, your trip with us will start at the iconic Airelles Le Grand Contrôle, in Versailles. I know how important this night is to you Muriel and I am so thrilled to have it included in your trip. As part of your exclusive stay here, you will have access to a private tour of the Chateau and gardens as well as a private butler for your whole stay. 
You will then pick up your car and head to Lyon for 2 nights, heaven for foodies and an amazing contrast to the other destinations on your itinerary. I have included a pastry-making experience with a professional chef which will have you feeling like locals in no time! 
From Lyon, you will drive down to Provence, ready for 3 nights at the stunning La Bastide de Marie that I know you already love. In Provence, I would recommend taking advantage of the amazing wine scene that I know oyu are keen to explore, so I have included a tour of Chateauneuf du Pape and beautiful Luberon. 
You'll then head over to Nice, for your final few days to be spent in this iconic hot spot, the jewel of the French Riviera. Here I have added a local cooking class, where you will make your dinner with a local, to be enjoyed with views over the city. 
Not accounting for you night in Versailles, this itinerary would cost around 7435 USD, which I know is a little over what we discussed last week, but I hope you agree totally worth it.
This is the best of France done right. I hope you love this itinerary as much as I have enjoyed putting it together for you! 
I can't wait to catch up with you on Wednesday the 31st at 11am Central Time to hear your thoughts on what I have put together. 
Best travels,

Text Welcome to Versailles
Louis XIV transformed his father’s hunting lodge into the monumental Château de Versailles in the mid-17th century, and it remains France’s most famous and grand palace.
Situated in the leafy, bourgeois suburb of Versailles, 22km southwest of central Paris, the baroque château was the kingdom’s political capital and the seat of the royal court from 1682 up until the fateful events of 1789 when revolutionaries massacred the palace guard. Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were ultimately dragged back to Paris, where they were ingloriously guillotined.

As you leave central France behind and head to Lyon, these are the spots that I would recommend en route: 
Palace of Fontainebleau: The House of Ages
Beginning as a medieval hunting lodge, François I performed a complete overhaul in the 16th century in an attempt to create a ‘New Rome’. Bringing in the finest artisans of the day, they blended Italian and French styles to create the ‘First School of Fontainebleau’. Over the centuries, the country’s rulers continued to enlarge the palace, right up until Napoleon III, culminating in the 1900 room palace of today, where every inch is richly decorated with wood panelling, gilded stucco, frescoes, tapestries and paintings. The glorious Trinity Chapel hosted Louis XV’s wedding, and Napoléon III’s christening. Napoléon’s wife had four drawing rooms created to house her Asian art collection. There’s even a gilded bedroom created for Marie Antoinette, though she never used it. The various wings created five irregularly shaped courtyards, the oldest of which is the Oval Courtyard where the sole remnant of the original medieval structure can be found.

Semur-en-Auxois : Keeping things Medieval
Local legend says Semur-en-Auxois was founded by Hercules on his was back from Spain, though historical records don’t mention the town until the 6th century. During the Middle Ages, the town’s defenses were redoubled, making it an important stronghold for the Dukes of Burgundy during the Hundred Years War. Today, the town’s picturesque streets and pretty squares are lined with half-timbered houses, mansions, and historic landmarks. The medieval keep with is distinctive towers still guards the town. Standing 44 meters tall, five floors are open to visitors, which house a museum, library, and technological collection. The 14th century Collegiate Church of Our Lady is a gorgeous Flamboyant Gothic gem, studded with gargoyles, and home to a stunning painted altarpiece. The 17th-century convent now houses the municipal museum, which exhibits everything from archaeological finds to fine art.

La Rochepot Chateau : A Passion Project
First constructed in 1180 by the son of Hugh III, Duke of Burgundy, Chateau de la Rochepot was purchased in 1403 by seigneur Regnier Pot upon his return from the crusades, and remained in his family for 3 generations. After being destroyed in the French Revolution, the chateau was purchased by Cecile Carnot, and given to her son so he could pursue his passion for history. Over the next 26 years, he carried out a meticulous restoration on the property. The chateau still belongs to the Carnot family today, and is open to visitors who can explore the chateau’s chapel, guard room, kitchen, and numerous rooms decorated with Gothic- and Renaissance-style furniture. The chateau’s history is also closely linked with Burgundy’s viticulture, and wine tastings are now offered at the site. Operating hours vary depending on the season, and visitors are advised to check the official website before planning their visit.

Text Welcome to Lyon
Welcome to Lyon, where the charm of Old World elegance meets the pulse of modern sophistication. Nestled in the heart of France's Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Lyon is a city that effortlessly combines rich history, exquisite cuisine, and a vibrant cultural scene to create an unparalleled destination for discerning travelers.
Allow me to introduce you to a city that is not only a UNESCO World Heritage site but also a culinary haven, earning its title as the gastronomic capital of France. Explore the cobblestone streets of Vieux Lyon, where Renaissance architecture transports you to another era, and the scent of freshly baked pastries drifts from charming boulangeries.
Lyon is a confluence of the traditional and the avant-garde, with its historic landmarks such as the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière juxtaposed against cutting-edge museums and contemporary art installations. A stroll along the banks of the Rhône and Saône rivers reveals the city's scenic beauty, while the Presqu'île peninsula invites you to indulge in luxury shopping and boutique discoveries.
Of course, Lyon's true pièce de résistance lies in its culinary tapestry. Embark on a gastronomic journey through the city's renowned bouchons, where local chefs elevate traditional Lyonnais fare to an art form. From the renowned Paul Bocuse brasseries to hidden gems serving authentic silk worker dishes, every meal in Lyon is an exploration of flavor and refinement.

Five-star comfort is a given at Lyon's premier hotel, at home in a 1960s building overlooking the Rhône River in the heart of the city. Rooms enjoy a classical décor and city panoramas from the cocktail bar and gastronomic restaurant are nothing short of sensational.
Only a road separates the hotel from the majestic sweep of the Rhône River – the colourful Flower Tree sculpture by Korean artist Jeong Hwa Choi, aplomb on the quayside here, is impossible to miss. Place Bellecour, home to the tourist office and Bellecour metro station (lines A and D), is literally around the corner and it takes 20 minutes on foot to get to Lyon's beautiful Unesco-protected old town.
Breakfast is a gourmet feast of French pastries and bread, fruit, yoghurt, muesli ham, cheese and Lyonnais specialities like cervelle de canut (a mix between Greek yoghurt and cheese). The same eighth-floor space hosts Michelin-starred fine-dining restaurant, Les Trois Dômes, with signature dishes like morel-stuffed poultry from Bourg-en-Bresse and pike quenelles (Lyonnais dumplings) by chef Christian Lherm.
The ground-floor Silk brasserie serves pastas, risottos, omelettes, club sandwiches, various French beef cuts and gourmet burgers in a casual, 1970s-style interior. Lighter snacks are available throughout the day in the lobby Light Bar. Come dusk, flick through the iPad menu of 40 revisited craft cocktails in the all-red, eighth-floor Le Melhor Bar – host to twinkling city views and live jazz bands at weekends.

Today you will pick up your hire car and leave Lyon behind, ready to head down to breathtaking Provence. 
These are some sites I would recommend stopping at along the way to break up the journey: 
Vienne: Overflowing with History 
Once the capital of a Gallic tribe, after the area was conquered by the Romans, this ideal riverside location was made into a provincial capital. Even today, this City of Art and History’s rich heritage is preserved in its many monuments. Two ancient Roman monuments are still standing: the 1st century BC Temple of Augustus, and the huge 1st-century AD Théâtre Antique, which was one of the largest in Gaul, while Gallo-Roman archaeological remains can be found in the Garden of Cybele. Visitors can also discover the city’s beautiful medieval heritage by strolling through narrow lanes to it many monuments. The Romanesque Gothic Saint-Maurice Cathedral has some beautiful Flamboyant portals and colored roof, while Flemish tapestries adorn the interior. At the Romanesque Saint-André-le-Bas Church, visitors can take a peaceful walk through the cloisters, decorated with carved capitals.
Orange: Robust Roman Relics
Founded during the rule of Augustus in the 1st century, Orange once resembled a miniature version of Rome, with similar public buildings – just on a smaller scale. Besides the compact historical centre, with its narrow streets, picturesque ancient squares and a hilltop park, the main attractions are surely the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Roman theatre and Triumphal Arch. The theatre is described as the most impressive of its kind, it seats 9000 and features a 37-metre-high stone backdrop to the stage with niches, columns and a statue of Augustus. It takes about 20 minutes to get from the theatre to the massive three-arched Triumphal Arch, standing majestically over the city.
Avignon: The Siren’s Call
Inhabited since the Neolithic period, this ancient city’s name was recorded for the first time in the 6th century BC when a fortified Greek settlement was built on top of the rocky outcrop overlooking the river. In 1309 Pope Clement V selected the city as his residence, and for the next several decades it would be the capital of all of Christendom, receiving a bounty of rich architecture, including the Palace of the Popes – the largest Gothic palace in Europe. Now a UNESCO site, within the castle’s 18 foot thick walls, visitors can enjoy exploring staterooms, chapels, cloisters, and frescoed papal apartments. The city’s other UNESCO monument is the "Pont d'Avignon", of nursery-rhyme fame, the remains of a 14th century bridge. On top of the UNESCO sites, the city’s bounty of opulent churches, majestic palaces, and scenic streets make it hard for many visitors to pull themselves away.

La Bastide de Marie is one of those addresses that you would like to keep to yourself.
A stunning residence which combines simplicity, refinement and the  charms of Provence. You'll want time to stop and savor the gentle way of life that bathes the place. Here, nature is more than a simple decor, it is a way of life. 
Between Ménerbes and Bonnieux, you'll come across this elegant 18th-century residence. A country farmhouse restored in the pure tradition of a Provencal bastide.
Nestled in the heart of 26 hectares of vineyards, La Bastide de Marie flourishes on its authentic roots, and offers you a setting conducive to idleness under the Epicurean sun. Access to the house is via a driveway lined with cypress trees, century-old olive trees and the enchanting scent of lavender.
Here, you will be welcomed in the warmth of the stones of a bastide which reveals itself through an architecture marked by the delicacy of a past time. The antique furniture has been patiently collected from local antique and second-hand dealers and is combined with baroque pieces.
The main space is housed in the beautiful volume of the barn, around a monumental fireplace, while the lounges and the library on the first floor invite you, in any season, to stop for an afternoon tea, a reading break or a board game. On the terraces, you can listen to the whole of Provence whispering with lightness and generosity, or recognise its perfumes exalted by the sun.

Today you will head from Menerbes to Nice. This drive is around 3 hours, these are the hot spots I would recommend for you to stop off at! 
Hyeres : The Original Riviera
Settled by the Greeks in the 4th century BC, Hyères is a resort-town with substance. In the 18th century, English aristocracy in search of warm weather flocked to the village, then came artists such as Leo Tolstoy, Rudyard Kipling, and DH Lawrence, and in 1892, Queen Victoria herself. However, as the village was built on a hilltop, it eventually fell out of favour as vacationers looked to Nice and St. Tropez instead. Fortunately, that means the bougainvillea-lined streets are free for visitors to explore without masses of other tourists. A resort-town in spirit, the 3 ‘remarkable gardens’, panoramic vistas, and many cafes and restaurants serving fresh seafood just beg visitors to slow down and relax.
Grasse : Smells Like History
Dating back to the Middle Ages, the hilltop town of Grasse became the perfume capital of the world after it began manufacturing perfumed gloves in the 16th century. Today, Grasse’s perfumeries are responsible for ⅔ of French production and the historic Fragonard, Galimard, Molinard manufacturers provide free guided tours. For those who want to delve even deeper into the perfume tradition, the International Perfumery Museum trace’s perfume’s 3000-year history, even offering a perfume-plant-conservatory garden. Even if perfumes aren’t your passion, Grasse has one of the largest and best-preserved old towns in Provence. The main thoroughfares are painted in pastel orange to lighten the narrow streets, but duck into an alley and you’ll find an authentic Provence where laundry is hung out to dry from original unpainted houses. The single most important historical monument is the 12th century Cathedral Notre-Dame-de-Puy where you’ll find stark Romanesque architecture, Baroque ornamentation, and three paintings by Rubens.
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild : The Lap of Luxury
The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was built in 1905 for Charlotte Béatrice de Rothschild, French socialite and member of the impossibly wealthy Rothschild banking dynasty, to house her art collection. She had the Venetian-style villa surrounded by nine themed gardens, and a private zoo. On her death in 1934, Beatrice donated the estate to the Académie des Beaux Arts, who opened it to the public as a fine art museum. Among the 5,000 works in the estate’s collection are Gobelins tapestries, paintings by masters, luxurious porcelain, objects d’art from around the world, and antique furniture. Many of the items in the collection were saved from Parisian palaces, with some having belonged to Marie Antoinette and French kings in Versailles. The villa gardens offer a landscaped trip around the world, from the bamboo groves of Japan to the colors and fragrances of Provence, with historic stonework interspersed throughout.

Text Welcome to Nice
With its mix of real-city grit, old-world opulence, year-round sunshine, vibrant street life and stunning seaside location, no place in France compares with Nice.
Before everything else, there was the sea, and the Mediterranean climate – the twin factors that made Nice a tourist magnet as early as the 1700s. Look around and you’ll find the same elemental attractions that drew Europe's belle-époque aristocrats to promenade along the waterfront in horse-drawn carriages. Even now, nothing compares to the simple joy of a balmy beach day interspersed with a spot of people-watching astride the Promenade des Anglais' famous blue chairs. Whether you're skating, kayaking, swimming, sprawled on a beach lounger or transfixed by sunset over the ever-present Med, it's all still happening by the water.
Bring your appetite when you come to Nice. This city is meant for epicures. It all starts at Vieux Nice’s Saleya market, where small producers from the Alpine foothills bring in a bounty of fresh produce, and top chefs from surrounding restaurants shop right beside tourists. The city celebrates its uniqueness with street snacks like socca (chickpea pancakes), pissaladière (caramelised onion tart) or tourte de blettes (chard, raisin and pine nut pie), while its countless cosy bistros serve everything from hearty Provençal beef stew to true salade niçoise to pasta with pistou, and from fresh lemon tart to vegan cheesecake.
