Discover France through expatriate eyes!

France is a country literally packed with history, culture and diverse regional traditions. Here are some of my favorite destinations that have become beloved by my clients/friends.
If you’re a group or an organization I can also customise these experiences for 6 to 8 people. Let’s make it happen!

Escape to the south of France for a 4-day culinary and wine immersion at La Bastide Rose estate. Stay in the beautifully restored 18th-century manor house nestled among Côtes du Rhône vineyards.
Your hosts Nicole “Poppy” Salinger and Chef Emmanuel de Menthon invite you for an unforgettable Provençal getaway:

Terrance, many thanks for sharing your traveler’s tales. Although a vast number of “guide” books on France already exist, none of those have what only you can provide – you, always an inimitable raconteur. Your connaissances, your bonhomie, your joie-de-vivre enliven these singular anecdotes. TRAVELS IN FRANCE WITH TERRANCE is informative, entertaining and sans pareil . . . Chapeau!
S. Rosenberg, Book-buyer Brentano’s-Paris 1984-2009

The trip to the Périgord with Terrance was like a dream come true. Eric,the owner of Chateau Ladusse met us at Agen station and we were off. The scenery took my breath away, all shades of green and Lilacs in bloom everywhere. I felt as if my 'Fairy Godmother ' had waved her magic wand and put me into one of the most beautiful rooms. my view of the grounds was spectacular. The wine and food presented by Eric and Diane was beyond Michelin stars. Then came the next highlight -- meeting the celebrated author Martin Walker. We were invited to his home for a grand lunch prepared by his wife. Martin's Bruno, chief of Police series has been most successful. Even the wine he produces carries the Bruno label. Needless to say, the wining and dining with exclusive company was over the top. By all means, this is an adventure not to be missed!

'This was our second trip and it was a delight. Chateau Ladausse is a wonderful place and Diane and Eric make the experience very special. Martin Walker and his wife Julia were also superb hosts. They welcomed us with delicious food, conversation, wine and hospitality! Altogether, a terrific time in Le Périgord.”
