French Alps, Episode 59


French Alps, Episode 59
Cynthia Caughey
This week we head to the French Alps with tour designer Cynthia Caughey. She lives in the Alps part-time with her French husband and has come to know it very well. Her company offers two tours: one is the Alps exclusively, and the other is French Alps and Provence. On the show we discuss both and I must say they sound like fun and action-packed tours, yet accessible to all. One of the attractions they take their visitors to is the Carri猫res de Lumi猫res at Les-Baux-de-Provence, which I highly recommend (lots of photos on the website).
