Meet Caroline Paul, the soul of travel

Born in Azay-le-Rideau, Caroline Paul grew up dreaming of the wonders of the Loire Valley and its majestic Châteaux de la Loire.

At the age of 15, driven by an enthusiasm for travel, she chose the path of tourism. After training in tourism in Aix-en-Provence, she began her career in Paris with American Express and Havas Voyages. Caroline had the grace to travel the world, organizing business trips for iconic French brands.

With the soul of an entrepreneur, Caroline set up an international tourism marketing consultancy in 2012. Her mission? Accompany France's major tourist sites, such as Château de Chambord and Château de Chenonceau, in their quest to appeal to a new generation of tourists, young and ultra-connected on social networks. Passionate about the geopolitics of tourism and societal issues, she takes pleasure in offering a supreme vision to her customers, highlighting the treasures and heritage of our territories.

In 2019, while working on a project for the Centre-Val de Loire region, she fell under the spell of Vendôme. From Azay-le-Rideau to Paris, via Saint Cloud; it's in Vendôme that she finally decides to put down her suitcases.

The escape that attracts us, the adventure that spices up our lives, the unique experience, the luggage filled with essentials, a book that depicts the love for her country, or a visit to Beauval Zoo... It's all part of her world.
