Meet Our Private Events Coordinator

 

As Founder and active President of France Off the Beaten Path Tours, I hand-picked Summer to lead as head curator of our private event planning services. An accomplished event planner, Summer designs unique events, working with our extensive network of partners and suppliers throughout France to ensure your event is magical and extraordinary. She works closely with you to bring your dream to life and handles all logistics, so you relax and enjoy your event. Services include event organization, booking of all local suppliers, our picks for the best event venues, exceptional chefs and caterers, entertainment, pre and post-event organization, Summer’s presence throughout the event as your on-site planner, sightseeing tours, pre & post-event stays. Summer will work tirelessly to ensure your event surpasses your expectations! 

Originally from Los Angeles, California, Summer settled in France over 20 years ago. She has dual French-American nationality and is a lifelong francophile. She worked at the French-American Chamber of Commerce in Los Angeles and at “Atout France,” and made the leap across the Atlantic to France in 2000 to work as a Tourism Marketing Director before joining France Off the Beaten Path Tours. Summer also founded a local organization connecting English-speaking ex-pats with French locals in her home village in the French countryside. She organizes monthly and private events and retreats year-round. Summer’s passion for connecting people, sharing her love of France and the French culture, and making people’s dreams come true for their special event in France runs deep. For our guests traveling on one of our regularly scheduled tours, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and get to know Summer on either our Provence or Loire Valley tours.

RATED 5 STARS BY HUNDREDS OF HAPPY TOUR GUESTS

OVER 500 VERIFIED FIVE-STAR REVIEWS ON TRUSTPILOT

A WORD FROM Our Guests:

“This was my third trip in the same number of years with Christy and Off the Beaten Path. While on her trips you can tell how much effort there is on the off season to make every single week perfect. From the pick up at the train station to the teary goodbye at the airport, everything is perfectly planned and executed. The hotel in St. Remy is magical, and the tour guides Philippe and David are exceptional. If you are considering a trip with OTBP, go for it and come home with new friends, a love of Provence and a longing to return as soon as you can!” — Beth Bower

“We had an excellent tour with Christie and her crew in the Loire valley. We did things that only a true insider would have access to-dinner at a Michelin chefs house, helping/learning to cook at a highly rated restaurant in their kitchen. This was in addition to seeing the sights and touring the castles. A truly unique experience that is off the beaten path. We will use her again when going back to France.” — Karen Berner

“France Off the Beaten Path was so great the first time that I had to return to Off The Beaten Path for a repeat visit. Everyone that works for Christy is excellent and full of life. Loved their tours to Van Gough, Dinner at Catherine’s home, picnic in the woods, wineries – And the only max at 16. So we really got to know each other. Highly recommend.” — Lauren

“Outstanding tour of truly beautiful areas of Provence by a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who spoke perfect English. Gorgeous accomodation, very special restaurant experiences, and an effort made to avoid arriving at tourist hotspots with the hordes made it all the more enjoyable.” — Geoff & Lorrene Evans
