We at NextTribe are so lucky to know people who have exquisite knowledge of fine places. With the help and contacts of NextTriber Ellen Williams, the author of three guidebooks on Paris, we’ve put together a fascinating tour of Paris that focuses on food, fashion and fun. 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.
A detailed itinerary will be coming but here’s what we can tell you now.
