The winning bidders’ party will experience France as few people ever have or ever will. If you’re a Francophile, or simply a lover of the good life in all its forms, don’t let this lot get away.

Your journey begins in Paris, where you’ll spend two nights at Esprit Saint Germain, an intimate and warm Five-star boutique hotel on the Left Bank, completely renovated in 2021. Your spacious Suite will have a terrace with a view of the rooftops of Paris and the Church of Saint-Sulpice.

While in Paris, you’ll board the TGV high-speed train for an excursion to Nancy and an introduction to the House of Daum. Founded by Jean Daum in 1878, Daum gained a worldwide reputation as the only commercial crystal manufacturer employing the pâté de verre (glass paste) process for art glass and crystal sculptures, a technique in which crushed glass is packed into a refractory mold and then fused in a kiln.

You’ll witness this remarkable process firsthand during a VIP tour of the factory with the Daum artistic director. Following the tour, you’ll visit the Musée des Beaux-Arts on the Place Stanislas, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the oldest museums in France, it houses an important collection of paintings as well as a gallery dedicated to pieces by Daum. Afterward, you’ll have lunch at the Grand Café Foy on the Place Stanislas.

From Paris your party will head to Versailles for an overnight stay at the exclusive Airelles Château de Versailles, Le Grand Contrôle. The hotel is home to just 14 rooms, each a story of 18th-century splendor with period furnishings and drapes; the magic of a stay here is enhanced by privileged access to the palace and gardens. You’ll have a VIP tour of the Hall of Mirrors and the Orangerie Gardens, followed by a private dinner by famed Three Star Michelin chef Alain Ducasse in Marie-Antoinette’s Cabinet.

A private car will now whisk you to Provence for a stay at Château d’Estoublon, producing olive oil and exceptional wine since 1489. Although the 500-acre estate is owned by former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, your party will have the keys to the castle for two nights. On one of those nights, you’ll dine with the President and his wife in their private salon. During the rest of the time, you’ll tour the vineyards, taste the olive oil and exceptional Rosé and bask in the timeless beauty of Provence.

You’ll visit the haunting village of Les Baux-de-Provence, located on a rocky outcrop in the Alpilles mountains. One of the most beautiful sites in France, Les Baux is famous for both olive oil and wine in addition to tourism.

For the finale of your French adventure, you’ll move on to Gordes, a picturesque village on a rocky promontory in the Vaucluse mountains. You’ll spend the night at Airelles La Bastide de Gordes, Palace, a former stately home overlooking the historic village, supervised by a warm and caring staff.

You’ll take afternoon tea at Ladurée, the Gordes branch of the famed Parisian pastry shop established in 1862—don’t miss the famous macarons. That evening, you’ll dine at the Clover Restaurant at Airelles La Bastide and experience a meal prepared by Michelin-starred chef Jean-François Piège.

The memories of your amazing journey will linger in your home every time you look at your Daum Ginkgo Magnum Vase: a unique, one-of-a-kind example of artistic glassware inspired by the vibrant colors of the ginkgo tree.

Bid high for this unforgettable experience and remember: It’s ALL for the kids!
