Kay & Mark 'Map Man' Williams...
Originally from the UK and New Zealand we both have a passion for meeting people and exceptional customer service. Having travelled extensively and with a combined background in marketing, event planning and business development, we decided to move to the beautiful Minervois region in the ‘real’ south of France and put all of our skills to good use establishing a luxury Bed and Breakfast. Sainte-Hélène Chambres d’hôtes has been voted in the top 25 B & B’s in France and we have many happy returning guests!
Three years ago we decided to offer a unique holiday opportunity in the beautiful Occitanie region with us as personal tour guides. So began The 'Real' South of France Tours with the Languedoc I Best Kept Secrets Tours. You can choose the 7 day Tour or, if you have less time available, we have a 5 day Tour. This year we are also launching our Languedoc II More Secrets Tour.
Occitanie was formerly the Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi Pyrénées, we believe it is the ‘real’ south of France!

"We have such great memories of our time on our tour in Olonzac which became one of the best holidays we have had in France.
We can’t thank you enough for everything you did to make the week so special and for sharing your knowledge of the region with us.
Not to forget the wonderful food which will be a talking point for us for many moons.”

"I have travelled for the last 20 years to many countries, and had several hosts and tour guides and who has been the best to date?
Kay & Mark!
You have given us the most wonderful time and your attention to our every need has been exceptional.”
