I needed a custom itinerary to Greece for my wife’s BDay and Corrine at Lifestyle Vacations was recommended by a dear friend.
I have traveled extensively and let me say this trip was the best ever. From arrival to departure, not one problem. Corinne’s attention to detail made the accommodations she selected perfect. The private tours that she arranged were amazing and the restaurant recommendations were spot on. We could not have asked for anything better.
Now my wife wants to move to Greece (thanks to Corrine…😁)!

This was our second trip with Corrine and as always it was fabulous!
We did day trips to the Loire Valley, Normandy and the Champagne region. She was very knowledgeable about the history and various sites. She was welcomed warmly wherever we went and her English was perfect. We visited Castles, Leonardo Da Vinci ‘s home, had private wine pouring and lunches prepared by Michelin chefs. We were transported in a private air-conditioned Van with cold water in coolers and fresh croissants from then local bakery. Pick up from the Hotel was on time and rest stops were very accommodating.
Next year we will be doing and villa in Bordeaux with our favorite guide Corrine!
Enjoy the best of France with one phone call.
Highly recommended. Very rare from me.
Check out her on-line cooking classes too!

My two friends and I had Corinne Preteur book a hotel for us in Paris for several nights and she guided us through Normandy for 5 days. Her selection of accommodations and restaurants was perfect. We enjoyed the benefits of Corinne's long standing professional and personal relationship with all the owners and staff. It was a perfect journey with a knowledgeable guide and friend.

I’ve had the great pleasure for the past 8 years of travelling with Corinne Preteur and Lifestyle Vacations France. She personally takes care of all the travel arrangements, takes you to the best restaurants and museums and historical sites with her superb knowledge of French food, history and culture. I can’t say enough about Corinne and all the wonderful travel memories I’ve had but am so grateful to know her as not only a travel consultant but as a travel companion and dear friend.

Corinne provided a exceptional and unforgettable experience of a lifetime for me. We spent a week with Corinne as our guide for her Loire Valley tour. We visited breathtaking chateaus, Michelin restaurants, and stayed at a wonderful B&B. And all along this adventure, Corinne provided her expert knowledge of food and history, warm and generous hospitality, and a charming and fun sense of humour. All parts of this tour exceeded my expectations.

I had Corinne in November 2009 and this year I asked her to prepare a tour for me and my husband to the best wineries in French in 13 days. We did Paris airport (rent a car) to Burgundy, three days, then Beaujolais, Rhone Valleys,Bordeaux, Loire Valley and Paris.She booked the "must go" restaurants, excellent. I had to skip few because the time and I really loved the marathon but with 62 years old we ate a lot and drove about 3,000 km!

She is fabulous. Tell her your style and ask her to do according with your lifestyle otherwise you are going to be in problem and when she books the restaurants she is sure that you are going to be there but some times the food was a lot and the we tried to do the most. If you are not going try to cancel(it's hard if you don't have a phone and I had one that all the time needs more Euros and I couldn't make the calls. Sometimes we got so late at the B&B (60% of them were very nice, 30% excellent and 10% not for us).
I asked comfort, price, wireless internet, and breakfast. I intend to write about the B&Bs and post pictures once I am ready with the pictures.
I loved! Thanks,Corinne!

We have traveled extensively throughout our lives around the world. Never however have we participated in a culinary tour. This past 10 days we toured with Corinne Preteur of Life Stye Vacations through the central part of Portugal. We visited few popular tourist sites as well as some wonderful hidden gems. In addition we had a number of cooking classes, the best being in Lisbon. The main course of our chef's teaching lunch/dinner was octopus. To obtain the menu items we visited a local market with him. That along with dinner preparation was a great learning experience and a lot of fun. Corrine, was outstanding, We enjoyed many laughs during our time with her. Every restaurant she selected was outstanding. The highlight was the one star Michelin restaurant near Cascais. This tour was truly unique for us and will never be forgotten. Corrine was a true delight.

From the moment you collected me, I felt complete warmth and knew this day would be just a great one. one of the best i would experience whilst in Paris. And, that it was, plus more. you truly provided me with so much insight to not only Fontainebleu and Vaux le Vicomte, but to the history and other places to see, wine and dine in Paris, to ensure that my visit to your country would be one of memorable.

I would highly recommend this 3 hour walking tour around the Latin Quarter in Paris. Corrinne knows all the local shop keepers and was very generous in providing us with beautiful food to taste, including lunch with wine.

It was absolutely amazing. It was my first time traveling alone and with very limited knowledge of the language. I did my best to assimilate and spoke the language as often as I could. The food, the tours, and the company was such an incredible experience. I met a lot of other individuals traveling from all over. I learned a ton, saw a lot, and made friends too. Thank you Corinne for the tours, cooking lessons and great conversations.
