For me, The French Muse is about travelling deeper, seeking thoughtful and singular journeys that get to the heart of Provence and its culture. I felt this need to create a more authentic and exclusive travel experience, which was focused on nourishment, creatively and physically. It’s really genuinely exciting to be the conduit that brings people together from different generations and backgrounds, to create an experience where it is essentially about meaningful human interactions and connections.
