Hi, I’m Alecia Caine, lifestyle and boutique tour design consultant. As a previous CPA, my passion was inspiring women to be successful in their own business and to live their dream. When my sons left the nest, it was time for me to nurture my own dream to reinvent myself and follow my passion for France.
Having traveled all over France for close to 30 years, studying the language, culture, food and fashion, I mustered the courage 4 years ago to quit my corporate job and follow my heart to France. Allow me to share my passion for all things French with you and inspire you to design your dream life.
I created these itineraries with the intention of connecting women in the US with French women, to create long lasting friendships and bonds and exchange cultures and ideas of what it means to be feminine in today’s world. No matter what the language barrier we can all learn and be inspired by each other. I personally escort each group of selected women and introduce you to my girlfriends in France.
The theme for Tout Pour la Femme, September 23 - 29, 2013, is about pampering your inner femme, in Paris. Reinvent yourself; find your unique style and femininity. Immerse yourself intimately in this seductive city, access designer showrooms and boutiques with our fashion consultant and personal shopper. Treat yourself to a makeover with our stylists, and makeup professionals. Trace the footsteps of Coco Chanel and all the great women who left their mark on Paris. Dine in a chic Parisian bistro and favorite cozy places that are off the tourist track. Ride the Bateau Mouche, visit the Louvre or just sit in a cafe and people watch.
I pay attention to your dreams and wishes and custom design your experience of a lifetime. Small groups of like-minded women voyage together and there is plenty of time for you to explore on your own. I am happy to make suggestions for your exclusive time or allow yourself to lose yourself and find yourself in Paris.
The Taste of Burgundy tour, September 29 - October 3, 2013, connects women to their soul, in the slow paced back country of France. Taste wine on my friend, Maria’s organic vineyard. She just received a national merit award for her superb wines. Feast on regional specialties on her 200 year old farm.
Another friend, Catherine, raises Angora goats with plenty of fresh air and lots of space so they are as happy as could be. She transforms their fleece into beautiful hand made wearable art using ancient crafts that are disappearing. We will be guided on a private tour of a medieval town and its monuments. Accommodations are in quaint inns and a luxurious Relais & Chateaux complete with wine tastings and fine gastronomic fare.
Connect with your internal rhythm and the rhythm of France. Take time for long dinners and convivial conversations with new friends. Whether it’s your first time to France or your 10th, there is always something new to explore in this amazing country.
Let me custom design your next trip to France. For more information about upcoming tours in 2013, please call me at 805-218-1277 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
