Couples vacations in France

During the month of September, the tourist influx is less important than in the middle of the summer season. Quite simply, because it is the start of the school year, and the return to work for adults. This is why we offer a selection of high-end properties for couples or small groups ranging from 2 to 5 people.

The Dog Days Of Summer

Here’s why we call this time of year the ‘dog days’ of summer These punishingly hot summer days get their name from an ancient belief about the brightest star in the sky—not from dogs’ tendency to laze around in the heat. And there is no better place to spend these hot summer days than in the south of France...

Haviland, Limoges porcelain since 1842

Since 1842, the porcelain factory has been a victim of its success by transmitting know-how to Limoges while combining tradition and modernity. The alliance of art, luxury and porcelain. Haviland knew how to combine the requirements of modernism with craftsmanship. All the creations are made by hand by highly qualified craftsmen.
