Advertising Upscale Travel.

Editorials and customer reviews prove fruitful in reaching the Upscale Travel market. The first great challenge is standing out among all the noise and providing travelers exactly with what they want which usually revolves around unforgettable experiences and for the guests to completely unwind. For us at Luxury Travel Consultant2, I will say that the human connection is extremely important and the connections allow for trust to be developed, a reputation to be validated as well as reliability, resulting in referrals that can be received with trust. It’s a no brainer because  it is all based on trusting your abilities to deliver to your clientele with total honesty, this is why upscale travelers are prone to see more value in real and honest  comments and reviews of a product or service. When I started with Luxury Travel, My main focus was to provide my clients with  an unforgettable experience and to always be honest with my advertising for an upcoming trip.  It is not always easy to create a great team , because you have to make sure that they know what they are doing and check their references . Everybody has to be  local, Bilingual and they also  have to have  a great reputation as a tour guide/driver and private chef. Our homes are amazing and we work carefully with realtors in the region we are visiting. Join us for our 2019 tours , we are working on them right now. “We are an inspiration as well as dream makers for our clientele”

Definition of Luxury Travel.

Luxury is a word that has been used a lot and it has a lot to do with people’s perceptions . “For some travelers Luxury is another person’s ordinary”, Luxury Travel Consultant2 is defined less by thread count and Michelin star and more by the access to the people, places and experiences that represent all that is authentic about a destination – Of course comfort still apply and high standards of accommodation.

Luxury Travel Consultant2 offers its clientele access to a live- in experience that represents all that is authentic about a destination. Our clientele wants to participate, not just see ( Truffle hunting, cooking class, wine tasting and more).

Luxury Travel has always been a privilege for the rich and we want to make it more accessible by finding ways to lower our prices. Right balance of local insight, flexibility and independence . We pretty much design a tour with activities but we always want to make sure that our clientele is happy and well taken care of. I believe that it is important to our clients’ taste to choose carefully. A lot of our guests appreciate ” the insider” access to truffle farms, wineries and artisan studios.

For Luxury Travel Consultant2, it’s not about the marble bath-tub or gold tab but more about the location, the bilingual guides and the host. Everyone is local and bilingual.

Our focus is helping our clients enjoy an authentic quality experience that will be long remembered. Our mode of travel and type of accommodation used are upscale villas, properties – The common theme is that the experience is a special one. The experience is created for your personal preferences that truly combines enrichment, enjoyment and education, with the time  to appreciate your surroundings at a price that represents value  for your money.

Our Company embodies a great experience of the culture one is visiting.

High and Low season, when is the best time to travel to Provence.

Don’t even think about visiting Provence in high season without reserving accommodation. From the beginning of July to the end of August, the region and especially the Riviera and Cote d’Azur is at its busiest and everything, from Grand hotels to camp sites, is totally full. May to mid-June and September to mid- October are a lot less crowded. Some smaller hotels in rural areas from November to February.

How to book.

You can book direct with hotels and other accommodation providers by phone, fax and increasingly by email and via the web. The French government tourist office website provides useful links for finding and booking accommodation. You will  normally be asked for a deposit, which you can pay by credit card in most larger hotels and camp sites  or by money order.

Villas’ accommodation.

At Luxury Travel Consultant2 we love villas. Do you want to know why, they are an open window to a culture and lifestyle.

A villa holiday offers a more luxurious version of self-catering. Most of the villas are in or near coastal resorts and most of them have a pool. They also offer basic maid service ( cleaning and linen change), but the more luxurious ones can be fully staffed with cook, valet service and chauffeur. Luxury Travel Consultant2 provides chauffeurs and tour guides who are local and bilingual most of the time. A local chef will plan a menu and make you discover the local cuisine.

Yachts and cruisers.

You don’t have to be mega-rich to stay on a yacht or cruiser. The closer you get to Cannes or Antibes the more expensive such boats become, but they are less ostentatious vessels in such harbours as Le Lavandou and Sainte Maxime.

Women and Travel.

Women who travel in a group.

I like to experience a country, I do not enjoy big buses and do not want to be looked at as a tourist but as a curious and respectful visitor.
A way to experience a culture would be to rent a villa with other people and have a local chef cook for you and a local driver driver. The tour would be organized to your liking of course and interesting activities would please your senses and curious minds.
What do you like to do when you travel?
Visit monasteries, hiking, Visit a truffle farm, Shopping, meditation or yoga for the entire week, culinary delights, wine tasting,nature sanctuaries, touring the region?
Would you enjoy staying in a very nice Provencal villa with double accommodation or single accommodation or both?
Do you like having a chef? do you like having a driver / tour guide but you think that upscale is too expensive?.

Where would you like to stay in Provence?

Part One.

Everybody is different when it comes to vacationing, some people love hotels, luxury villas while others love  camping, bed and breakfast, youth hostels or camping cars .

Every establishment has a wide range of rooms and prices. It always depends on what you are looking for , in that case prices can increase or decrease and the difference can be enormous, a large room with antique furniture, a television or a balcony with sweeping views , a complete bathroom will cost much more than a poky back room in the same hotel with a window overlooking a car park, no antiques and the WC down the hall. Most two stars hotel have their own showers and WC, most one star offers room with or without. A reminder always book ahead to make your vacation much sweeter and enjoyable!. There are chain hotels in most cities and they are pretty much geared to the business traveler more than the tourist. You can always stay in Relais du Silence, one is Le Mas des Romarins in Gordes, with amazing views of the Luberon and Gordes, it is a five star hotel with great charm!. Also another Relais du silence is Hotel Villa Borghese is located in Greoux- Les- Bains near Aix en Provence and not far from Manosque, the rate is approximately 75 euros  ( please check)/ night per room. Also Relais et Chateaux offers  more to an upscale clientele.

Bed and Breakfast. are usually located in rural areas, there are plenty of opportunities for a stay in a private home or farm. Prices tend to be moderate or inexpensive – Fleurs – du- Soleil offers maisons d’hotes and B&Bs throughout southern France.

Gites d’etape and refuges. Most cities have youth hostels and  ( Auberges de Jeunesse), they offer simple dormitory accommodation and breakfast. The majority offers kitchen facilities as well or inexpensive meals. They are the best deals for people traveling on their own.

Camping is another option as well as camping cars if you want to visit the region. there is at least one campsite in every town, inexpensive and run by the town itself ( camping municipal). Other campsites are graded with stars like hotels, from four to one, at the top of the line you can expect lots of trees and grass , hot showers, a pool or beach, sports facilities and a grocery, a bar and or/ restaurant. Again everything is booked in July and August, beware!.

Provence in the Fall


, , ,

The best time to visit Provence is when the tourist season is over, then you can enjoy and relax in the warm sun!.

Each season has its pros and cons. In January the tourists are in the Alps or Pyrenees , in February the mimosa and almonds bloom on the Cote d’Azur . In April and May you can sit outside at restaurants and swim, and within an hour’s drive you can ski at Auron or Isola 2000. By June, the Mistral ( gusty winds) is slowing down and the resorts begin to fill up, walking is safe in the highest mountains. July and August are definitely not the best months to visit, when everything is crowded and temperatures and prices soar and tempers fare!. I will say that it is also the season of great festivals in Avignon, Aix ,Juan les Pins and Nice. Once French school holidays end in early September, prices and crowds decrease with the temperature. In October the temperature is still mild inland and on the coast!.

Planning a trip to Provence this coming fall 2017?

We offer travel planning, Villa rentals, hiring a private chef, nannies and drivers, the best itineraries, wine tasting, truffle hunting. We also offer private tours and small tour groups ( not more than 12 guests).
