Savoir-Voyager lets you Discover a different Europe

During my many visits to different regions of Europe, I’ve opened doors and met many passionate experts in their professional field who I would like you to meet in person:

They produce wine, collect white truffles, catch fresh lobster, grill wild eel, refine selected cheeses, farm oysters. One of them produces the real Aceto Balsamico.

Others simply show us their home town with its cafés, markets, and historic sights.

The concept is to let you savour authentic flavours and dishes, learn about their origins, and put them into their geographic & historic context.

 

Travelling in 2021

2020 has been difficult and it’s not yet very clear whether we’ll soon be able to travel again – and where and how.

The more it may be comforting for you to know that:

 

  • All required health precautions are taken – if not exceeded
  • Groups are small: a maximum of 6 guests in one group
  • Arrangements can be easily adapted to your preferences and short-tern changes
  • I only share my personal favourite destinations
  • Each experience has been personally reviewed
  • Tours are offered in 🇬🇧 🇫🇷 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 🇱🇺 🏳️‍🌈

For Whom is this the Right Type of Holiday ?

My tours are tailor-made for groups between 2 and 6 participants, and are ideal for people who are curious about food, tastes, and the place they come from.

Typically, my guests are a family or a group of friends who want to:

– just get away for a short break or a long weekend and (re)discover authentic products, flavours and preparations

– prepare their further onward travel in Europe or extend their stay by a few days
