“Having travelled to Paris many times … I wanted to renew my acquaintance with an ‘old friend.’ Having used Paris as a destination for several groups I was interested in how La Fayette Travel was going to make the city a ‘different experience’ for me – and, in fact, how Paris would be renewed in my own heart and mind as the perfect incentive destination … Enter La Fayette Travel and the dynamic Cyril de Fontenay who was our host and ‘magician’ for the next few days in showing us a different Paris. Cyril understands our market extremely well and also understands that the visit needed to provide enough of the traditional to satisfy one’s expectations of Paris and then the new and wonderful in order to “Wow” the most jaded traveller.
Then how did Cyril show us a different Paris, a Paris that can conjure feelings of awe and delight in even the most frequent visitor? Through visits to; Bercy, a new area of Paris, Les Pavillions de Berc, L’Alcazar, a great dinner venue, and The Vaux-le-Vicomte Chateau, the inspiration for Versailles.
So, Paris and I are acquainted once again and I know her a little better and I look forward to future explorations of this glorious city and also to showing it to my clients. Thank you to the Paris Tourist Office, Sofitel and La Fayette Travel!” Carole Parsons, Director, CaLL Incentives – The Special Care Travel People
