Fauré, Bizet, Poulenc, Berlioz, Messiaen, Rameau, Massenet, Lully, Debussy, Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Chopin-the list goes on- all found their home in France, and it is not difficult to see why. From Notre Dame’s towering Gothic spires and Versailles’s indulgently extravagant Baroque gardens to Provence’s fragrant lavender fields and the Riviera’s relaxing beaches, France remains an iconic and inspiring destination. We trust that we will not have to twist your arm to stroll along the Champs-Elysees, enjoy the wines and cheeses of Bordeaux or the seafood of Normandy, peruse the Louvre and Musee D’Orsay’s unparalleled collections and play an unforgettable concert tour in this timelessly beautiful country.
