With optional pre-trip and post-trip extension in Paris and/or Cap d’Agde! Plus, you can continue your European adventure on the Desire Monte Carlo Cruise!

For the past three years, we have been brainstorming and dreaming about a Europe Lifestyle Takeover and we are going to make this a reality in 2019!

After a lot of research, we decided on a 12-night trip to three of the must-see places in France! We designed this trip around unique accommodations, fun excursions and special lifestyle activities in Paris, Bordeaux and Cap d’Agde.

The first five rooms that book will receive an Early-Bird Booking Discount – Your choice of an additional Day Tour in Bordeaux OR US$350/C$500 off your trip!

BORDEAUX

We begin our trip in Bordeaux, a region well known for its world-famous wines. However, you have the option to meet us in Paris and catch the train to Bordeaux together.

We will spend a few days relaxing in the countryside, shake off the jet-lag, meet your fellow travellers, learn about Bordeaux history, its culinary specialities and its culture, and discover how wine is made and understand the specificity of Bordeaux wines.

We have a fun itinerary planned with both included and optional activities, such as a cooking class; wine tours and tastings – visits to the different wine areas such as Saint Emilion & Pomerol; a Bordeaux City Tour that includes their amazing new interactive wine museum, Cité du Vin; and a day trip to Arcachon Bay, stopping at the Dune du Pyla, the largest sand dune in Europe, to enjoy a day at the seaside.

For our Bordeaux accommodation, we will stay in the charming village of Saint-Sulpice-et-Cameyrac, at a beautiful castle for a full Takeover!

This recently renovated castle is located in a 16-hectare vineyard and it has three levels with a peaceful atmosphere and contemporary interior. There are 4 Queen bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with two twin beds (that can be pushed together), all with ensuite bathrooms on the first floor (one flight of stairs); an open suite on the top floor (two flights of stairs), which will be our play area; an entertainment room with a billiard table & a bar on the ground floor; and a large garden with a pool, outdoor seating, and a hammock.

If we have more than 6 room booked on this trip, we will have a second castle as our overflow accommodation. The second castle is a Bed & Breakfast and it is only a 5-min drive away. All activities will take place in our host castle but all transfers between the castles are at your convenience and are included.

You can choose a room at our Host Castle or at the Overflow Castle. All rooms have private bathrooms.

Host Castle:

  • First Floor: (one flight of stairs)
    • Standard Queen Room
    • Standard Two Twins Room (can be pushed together)

Overflow Castle:

  • Second Floor: (Two flight of stairs)
    • Superior King Room

PARIS

From Bordeaux, we will take a short direct 2-hr train to Paris, the city of love. Paris is so famous that we don’t have to say much about it, except to say how much Ying Ying loves it! She has been to Paris 10+ times, and each time she goes back, she falls more and more in love with it!

With so much to see and do, we will spend 5 nights in the French capital, which will allow you the time to explore the city at your own pace, in addition to the excursions and activities that we have planned, including visits to some of the many lifestyle clubs in the city.

For our Paris accommodation, we will stay at a hip and stylish boutique hotel, Hotel Edgar, located in a former clothing workshop in the Sentier garment district (Le Sentier is the historic district of textiles and clothing), in the heart of Paris in the 2nd arrondissement.

This will be a full Takeover if we sell out, otherwise, we will take over an entire floor. You can choose from a Standard, Superior or Deluxe room and you can choose your own room, depending on what is available when you book. Check out the 12 quirky room options here.

From Paris, we will take a direct 5-hr train to Agde, then a short shuttle to Cap d’Agde’s Naturist Village. Cap d’Agde is the seaside resort of the town of Agde, located on the Mediterranean Sea, and the Naturist Village offers 2km of beaches and numerous fun possibilities for your stay.

We will stay at the famous Jardin d’Eden, a 65-apartment luxury residence offering modern and chic rooms, with its own outdoor bar (open from 8am to 10pm) and restaurant, pink private heated pool and a large jacuzzi. It is located at the heart of the Naturist Village, a short walk to the amazing beach and the world famous Le Glamour Beach and Club Glamour. This is not a full Takeover but Jardin d’Eden is a lifestyle resort.
