Air France has service Vancouver to Paris direct. There is a new kid on the block -apparently Air Canada has direct flights on its new Dreamliner plane.
Both great ways to fly: pick your favorite. We like AF partnered with KLM direct from Vancouver. Choose a flight with fewer connections: it might be a little more expensive than hopping all over the world, but flying a great distance needs to be as relaxing as possible to maximize your trip. Use points if you have them, make it easy.
Who doesn't like to get comfortable, watch a few good movies, have a beverage, a meal and a nap and wake up in time for breakfast and coffee? IN FRANCE! A quick flight from CDG to Marseille/Provence as your final destination and we relax in Aix-en-Provence for 7 days. Breathe in the lovely sunshine made so famous by impressionists. We will see the markets, visit galleries, monuments, a spectacular local winery, head to Marseille for a day trip and just soak it all in. Avignon for certain- another taste of profound Provence.
After that, we take the TGV (high speed train- first class with champagne picnic en route) arrive in Paris at Gare de Lyon. Private transfer to our hotel and then the sky is the limit.
Three nights to explore the city of light. It will be as magical as you have imagined. Restaurants, cafes for people watching, great galleries with iconic works, off the beaten path Parisians secret spots (lots of those), shopping and embracing the culture.
Fly out of CDG after the last night in a hotel close to the airport - a neat trick to avoid panic in traffic jams and get a good night's rest before your outbound journey home.
Come and be a traveller, not a tourist.
