Maximum number of guests: 12
We at NextTribe are so lucky to know people who have exquisite knowledge of fine places. With NextTriber Ellen Williams, the author of three guidebooks on Paris, as our guide, we’ll go deep into a Paris not normally seen by tourists. Another NextTriber Leslie Garcia has opened up her ancestral home in a small town in Normandy for 4 days. This is a historic chateau, called Le Val Richer, that has been in Leslie’s family for generations. Be prepared for a Downton-Abbey-like experience (in French), with bells ringing before meals times and gorgeous gardens and grounds.
