Christopher de Doby,  Susan Pymble,  French Indulgence

A life-time passion for France to be shared...



Susan Pymble and Christopher de Doby established French Travel Connection in 1992. Their intention was to create a small boutique travel company, which unlike most that try to sell every single destination in the world, generally quite badly, will specialise in one destination only. From humble beginnings the business grew to become one of the leading French travel companies in the world, taking over 30,000 clients there every year. Today it offers what is probably the most comprehensive French travel product range in the world as well as the largest web site with nearly 3000 pages of quality products.

In 2004 Christopher and the French Travel Connection were named as "the best French travel specialist in the world" by the French Minister for tourism and the French government tourist bureau.

in 2004 Christopher was invited to become a member of the International Advisory Board to the French government tourist office.

In 2006 Christopher was awarded the "Gold Medal for tourism" by the French Minister for tourism, for outstanding services to the French tourism industry. This is an honor rarely bestowed on "foreigners"

These exceptional awards recognise our ability to select carefully the very best travel products and suppliers and to provide exceptional first-class service.

After living, breathing and selling France full-time every day of the year for the past 20 years, Christopher and Susan are recognised as the leading specialists for travel to France. They spend several months every year travelling throughout France seeking out and researching new and unique travel products and experiences.

Christopher Susan have developed an amazing knowledge of the top end luxury travel experiences in France, having stayed many times in the majority of the five-star luxury hotels and Relais & Chateaux properties and eaten numerous times in most two and three star Michelin restaurants. (it's a tough life, but someone has to do the research for the benefit of our clients !)

Christopher is constantly solicited by major magazines and TV travel programs to suggest and assist with unique and exciting travel stories.

"To us France has become a passion, a source of endless research, discovery and knowledge of the most diverse and pleasurable experiences. At the same time we enjoy immensely the sharing of this knowledge and experiences with those who wish to discover the very best of what France has to offer"

French Indulgence is our latest creation to provide the most unique luxury travel experiences throughout France for those privileged with the desire and the ability to enjoy the very best.

We are a well established travel company you can trust, with an outstanding track record. In an era where websites pop up left, right and centre, it is important for you to know that the money you pay out is well protected as:

  • We are a fully licensed travel company.

  • We are a member of the Travel Compensation Fund, which protects customer's funds.

  • Our client's monies are safely held in a protected Client Fund Account.

We will be delighted to assist you to make your dream of a unique French holiday experience come true.
