Because we specialise in small group tours we go to places the big groups don't. These are often owned by marvellous characters who are as much worth visiting as the places they live in. For example, earlier this year we visited the little known chateau of Montrésor. The owner is an ebullient eccentric who loves inviting people to visit his family's unique chateau, a time capsule from the middle of the 19th century stuffed with art treasures.

When we got there the owner and our very outgoing Texan clients got talking about Frank Sinatra, a singer they all adored. The owner of the chateau insisted on putting on one of his favourite Sinatra records and playing full blast out the window! Our clients immediately went into karaoke mode!! And much laughter and fun ensued. They've had a visit they will never forget.
