Sleeping Beauty looks for accommodation in a château

 

Do you know what has become of Sleeping Beauty, her Prince Charming and their many children?

Flashback: accommodated in a chateau for one hundred years, and woken by her Prince Charming, Sleeping Beauty lived a happy life. Both very busy with their family load, they decided to treat themselves to a holiday in France. Looking back with nostalgia on her lengthy chateau accommodation, Sleeping Beauty wished to introduce her husband to the concept. She undertook the organisation of a romantic and authentic minibreak in French chateaus, and suggested it to him. Her Prince Charming however seemed more interested by some sports experience in the Alps. Sleeping Beauty did not like the idea of herself and her princess’s dress on a snowboard very much. Accommodation in a chateau would be a lot more appropriate for her pretty dresses. Therefore, she started looking for quality accommodation in a chateau. Charming as he was, the Prince would not oppose the wish of the princess to be accommodated in a chateau.

Where did Beauty and the Prince find their château accommodation?

Thanks to the Internet, which they could both now use perfectly, they found out about the tourism agency called Culture & Confiture, specialised in chateau accommodation.

The Prince however… became worried about falling asleep and… never waking!

Located in the Loire district, the agency Culture & Confiture’s services were not limited to chateau accommodation, as they included numerous activities around the themes of gastronomy, sports, wellness, cultural discovery, adventure, French art de vivre, and much more. They tasted wine and cheese, they baked petit-fours and cauldrons, they play-fought under the watchful eye of the master swordsman, they flew up into the sky and explored new sensations such as parachuting. The Princess’s dress was indeed a little ruffled, but looked totally the part at the ball!

As you will have understood, Beauty and the Prince had lots of fun and enjoyed their authentically French holiday to the full. Let me reassure you – the Prince slept a comfortable sleep in his four-poster bed, and the Princess, this time, fully enjoyed her chateau accommodation.

C&C interviewed about all-inclusive holidays –

In need of an all-inclusive holiday?

According to the French ministry of tourism, 83 million tourists from all over the world visit France each year. What is more, the tendency is of increasing numbers. Our country is and remains the world’s most popular destination, with the two regions of Burgundy and Rhône-Alpes as some of the most frequent choices, because of their variety in landscapes, and therefore in activities.

This is why all-inclusive holidays are gaining in importance, because tourists wish for all-inclusive holidays!

What does an all-inclusive holiday consist in?

Other than the fact that visitors from other countries seek atypical, unordinary and authentic holidays, they also hope that travel agencies will offer all-inclusive holidays.

All-inclusive holidays first came about in the Dominican Republic, enabling each and every one of the holiday makers to fully enjoy their stay without having to worry about organisation, once on location. Taking the time to look for accommodation or a restaurant twice a day may prove to be quite stressful, possibly ruining a holiday in some cases when the result is not up to expected standards.

And this is why we offer all-inclusive holidays!

What has Culture & Confiture got to offer in terms of all-inclusive holidays?

Our travel agency offers all-inclusive travelling, because we wish every one of our holiday makers to feel as comfortable as they deserve to be. We will give the possibility for our holiday-makers to feel utterly free of all organisational obstacles linked to travelling.

For each one of our all-inclusive holidays, whether long or short, we organise transfers (from Lyon), accommodation (in a chateau), every meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and of course all activities (excursions, cooking workshops or lessons, wine and cheese tastings, sports activities – cycling, hiking, walks, etc).

In our all-inclusive holidays, we also leave some free time for each to choose a favourite pastime.

As a general rule, people travelling with us can discover authentic France in an unusual way, by meeting dynamic French people who show, explain and share their skills and know-how.

Choosing an all-inclusive holiday is the best way to visit France, and especially the regions of Burgundy and Rhône-Alpes, in a relaxed manner.

Merry glossary

Culture & Confiture : In French both these words are feminine. Culture means culture & Confiture is jam or jelly, depending on where you are from. The link between the two is how much you spread… Because, as we say here, the less you have, the more you spread. And basically, even though we’ve got some, we want to spread! Are you still with me?

 

We are Genevieve Briennon & Sandrine Thompson, two pure locals from countryside France, and we love our region so much –on the border between Burgundy and Rhone-Alpes– that we simply had to show how beautiful it is to the rest of the world. But that’s not it, we love food and wine, we love having fun, the countryside and sports, so our many years spent in tourism have lead us to organise a different kind of holiday which includes all of this.
