Elisabeth S.

Marseille, France

Bonjour ! Welcome to France. My name is Elisabeth and I have been guiding for more than 10 years in Paris and Provence.

I was born in the Basque Country in the border between France and Spain. With a French mother and a Spanish father, I grew up with two cultures which explains why I have always been extremely interested in cultural differences.

I graduated in foreign languages, and was delighted during my studies to spend some time in Santa Barbara to teach French to American students. I then specialized in communication and medias and I have been working in this field for many years.

But my passion for travelling and meeting new international people was so strong that I decided in my 30's to open a bed and breakfast and become a tour guide in order to share with travelers from all over the world my passion for France and the "French art de vivre".

As a professional guide I always make sure my tours adapt to the style of the people I guide. I want you to live a unique experience that will make you enjoy the best of Provence. This region that I love has so much to offer : tasty food, warm climate all year round, colorful landscapes, incredible history and ancestral traditions, authenticity of the people. . . In summary, just good life!

This special energy and great vibes from Provence is all I want to share with you by proposing you some tours that I've designed with passion and that I am sure will make you appreciate the Provencal lifestyle that the writer Peter Mayle describes so well in his book "A year in Provence". Forget about rushing, together we will take our time to enjoy the moment and make sure the tour that you're taking turns into an incredible and magical memory. Ready for the adventure?
