ABOUT

Bonjour! My name is Claire Paris (yes, that's my real name) and I'm a provencal by adoption!

     I was born outside of Paris during the marvelous 80s', from a dad from Champagne and a mum from Burgundy. The perfect blend!

I spent my childhood in the parisian region and moved to Lorraine when I was a teenager. Most of my beloved friends and a part of my family are from there.

     I moved to Provence after two years of tourism study that made me a licensed guide and a 6 year experience acquired in leading companies of the tourism industry. I started my own business in 2013 to share my love for Provence and all the things that make it so special.

     I'm an outgoing and enthusiastic person. I enjoy being outside, I will never miss an opportunity to pat a cat or wear a sundress, I'm amazed by the little things, I devour books (especially biographies), and I'm a biiiiiiiiiiig foodie! Traveling is also a huge passion of mine, hence the career as a tour guide, I suppose!

 

 

Tours

 

I want to show you the many beauties of Provence I got to discover over the years, and hopefully you will fall madly in love with it, just like I did! Whether you want to learn about roman history, visit a castle, have a picnic in the lavender fields, take gorgeous pictures to make your friends jealous, I can cater everything to make your vacation the most enjoyable ever.

You will find below an interactive map of Provence as well as ideas of tours for inspiration (if you're scrolling on your phone, let's meet on a computer!).

Everything is completely customizable. I exclusively do private tours. My air-conditioned van can accommodate up to 6 people. All you have to do is hop on and let the magic happen! Feel free to email me so we can discuss the best itinerary possible for your unforgettable experience in Provence!

Avignon

Avignon has no secrets for me! Are you ready to travel back in time and explore the capital of the catholic world in the 14th century? Let's embark on a journey through History, where you will discover the reasons that led the Pope to leave Rome and choose Avignon over any other place in Europe, and learn about the medieval daily life inside and outside the popes palace. Did you know that pollution was way worse then than it is nowadays? Or that street names are not random?

Arles

Arles is the perfect combination of roman heritage, Van Gogh sites and provencal charm! Why was this city so important for the romans that they built monuments you could only find in the most important cities of the Empire? Why did Van Gogh leave Paris and everything behind to live in a city he only had heard of a couple times, and why did he paint so much there? 

Arles also has one of my favorite neighborhoods in all Provence. Fancy a walk there?
