Sophisticated Hen Party in Perpignan

While the stylish Festival of Cannes takes place just down the road from us on the Cote D'Azur, we have been rolling out the red carpet for a few classy chicks for a sophisticated hen party in Perpignan.

The English bride to be is a mature lady, marrying for the first time and while she wanted to celebrate "l'enterrement de vie de jeune fille"( catchy, eh?), she really didn't want the usual fake boobs and willies in a nightclub scene.

The 8 ladies , ranging from 30 to 55 were here for 3 days and we really celebrated in style.
We started off their trip with a visit to a local spa where they totally unwound, relaxed and pampered themselves - they loved it so much that they decided to start every day with the same treatment!!! This superbe spa is on the outskirts of Perpignan and with blue skies and views of the snow capped mountains and it's no children policy, the ladies were in heaven!

We also enjoyed a Red Beret Wine Tour, ate in suberbe restaurants with sea views, did some rambling on the Cote Vermeille, visited an oyster farm and tasted the goodies and soaked up the atmosphere in wonderful Collioure.
The only prob now is that the bride to be wants to change her wedding and get married here !!! Think there could be a new business in that : wedding planner!!

Best of luck with the upcoming nuptials from all the team at The French Tour co xxx
