About Boutique Tours France
Boutique Tours France started in 2016 with just one tour to Normandy and Brittany, in the northwest of France. Catherine is from Brittany, so we have a great network in the region and know the area extremely well. As a result, our first tour was a success.
While operating this tour, our clients confirmed that we make a great team. We have a strong and supportive dynamic, are easy-going and fun. So, the business grew and by 2019 we had four tours, two to Normandy-Brittany and two to Provence.
The arrival of Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdowns put an abrupt halt to the business. We decided if we couldn’t travel to France, why not bring a slice of French life to New Zealand and so we began hosting French language immersion weekends in the North Island.
We started these immersion weekends in 2020 which were another success. In no time, all weekends in 2021 were sold out and we now have a waiting list of clients who want to join us for our future French immersion weekends.
Clients started asking us for private tailor-made French immersion weekends for families and friends which we immediately catered for.
We continue to offer our private bookings alongside our group events for those seeking a weekend away with a French flair.
Our 2022 calendar includes French immersion ateliers in Akaroa, Wanaka, Martinborough, and Matamata.
A très bientôt,
Catherine et Patsy
