Michel Floirat Naturally curious, he keeps on discovering the world by meeting extraordinary people in his two adoptive French regions : the Auvergne and the Champagne.

Vintage car collector, he choses a car the day he receives the guests, according to their taste, their expectations and the scheduled tour. His definition of luxury can be summed up in three words: authenticity, curiosity, uniqueness. To be open to others is fundamental, money is not the only motor, the Bling-Bling is exceeded. He knows the art of discovering a region through history and architecture, but also by beeing invited in private manoirs and chateaux. « My guests like general culture and refuse to shut themselves into a ghetto of rich. I try to create a moment of emotion and memories that travellers hope to find as they journey. »

He has created several tours in the Auvergne region, from the classic « Vichy » to the shuddering « legends, ruins & guosts » and also the « Luxury » escape, with confidential visits of places which are usually non open to the public. Aesthetes and epicurean guests are satisfied, because Michel Floirat always selects a fine food restaurant for each tour.

« Southern Champagne are the last vineyards of Champagne before the Mediterranean Sea. » Recently settled in this region, Michel Floirat plans to create a tour called « The Champagne region & wine of the General de Gaulle » where the large history meets the small one with visit of Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises, discovery of the Champagne Drapier, Mrs. de Gaulle and other memories.
