Join us for Travel 2017 Family and Friends opportunity

Join us in our Spring 2017 travel adventures

Happy New Year to all our friends and family! It has been a busy year for everyone and if you are like us, you would like to have an adventure to look forward to in the next few months!

We thought you might like to know that the team (Franck and Naomi) at Mistral Experiences is putting together 3 amazing travel experiences this spring

We are looking for villa-mates and co-adventurers!!!

As we are still developing our business model we are inviting you to join us in our exploration of the regions. Your feedback to us will be invaluable and of course, you will relax and be enriched by the front-end work that we will do to create these experiences. This is a great opportunity for everyone as we are not asking for any fees on these trips (though of course you pay your own way ) but your consent would be appreciated (though not required) as we photograph, promote and market the tours for business purposes in the future.

Why we chose these three regions:

Franck has been to all three locations selected and in fact, lived in Corsica in 88/89.

Provence and Tuscany are classic European experiences and regions which really embrace the slow travel values of food, family and dolce vita!

Corsica is a hidden gem, somewhere you might never go if not for an opportunity like this one.

All 3 are great places to enjoy with friends and family!

What we (Mistral) will do:
  • Tailor the location for the group
  • Find comfortable and authentic accommodation within the suggested price range and reserve/arrange payment of deposit
  • Research travel options to share with the group
  • Provide local tourism options based on interests of group
  • Offer language support in Provence, Tuscany and Corsica
  • Assist you in planning add-on travel in the regions if you have any questions
What you are responsible for:
  • Booking your own flight
  • Booking your own car rental (if desired) or arranging car sharing
  • Providing your portion of the accommodation cost
  • Purchasing your own food/beverages
  • Packing your bags and relaxing/having fun
Just to give you an idea...here is some Possible group accomodation in the proposed price range:
