With optional pre-trip extension in Cap d’Agde and/or and post-trip extension in Paris! Plus, you can continue your European adventure on the Desire Mediterranean 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 13-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.

CAP d’AGDE

We begin our trip in 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.

You have a choice of 3 room types, pricing is based on location. All rooms have a kitchenette with a ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge, and microwave and private bathrooms with bathtubs; except Standard rooms have a shower. The following rooms are around 100sqft, with a terrace around 36-50sqft with a garden set, sunbathing lounges, and awning.

The following rooms are around 100sqft, with a terrace around 36-50sqft with a garden set, sunbathing lounges, and awning.

  • First Floor: (one flight of stairs)
    • Superior King Room
  • Ground Floor
    • Deluxe King Room [+US$130/C$175]

There is also one King Suite [SOLD OUT], around 160sqft, available on the ground floor, with a living room, a dressing room, and a terrace around 65sqft with a garden set, and awning.

BORDEAUX

From Cap d’Agde, we will transfer to Béziers to catch a direct train to Bordeaux, a region well known for its world-famous wines.

We will spend a few days relaxing in the countryside, get to know your fellow travellers, learn about Bordeaux history, its culinary specialties 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 food tours and tastings; 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; or 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 are excited to stay at the award-winning Château Lagorce for a full Takeover!

This 15th Century French castle is nestled amongst the many vineyards and wineries in Dordogne, 25 minutes southeast of Bordeaux.

There are 19 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms on the first floor (one flight of stairs); 1 bedroom on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms in the tower (two flights of stairs); an entertainment room with a billiard table & a bar on the ground floor; multiple terraces and a large garden with a pool, outdoor seating, and a fishing lake.

Room options and pricing will be confirmed soon!

PARIS

After our castle Takeover in 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 [+US$130/C$175] or Deluxe [SOLD OUT] room and you can choose your own room, depending on what is available when you book. Check out the 12 quirky room options here.

At the end of our stay in Paris, you are welcome to extend your stay or join us as we continue our European Adventure with the Desire Mediterranean Cruise!
