This new route, which varies each year, passes through many beautiful French cities. Discover our selection of the best host towns and charter a private jet/ helicopter to reach your final destination. 


    The city of Reims, known for being the city of the coronation of France royalty, is home to a rich historical and cultural heritage with Unesco World Heritage sites such as the Cathedrale Notre-Dame, the Palais du Tau or the Basilique Saint Rémi.  Today, the fame of the city is also due to the prestigious producers of Champagne located in the region.

    Located between Strasbourg and Mulhouse, Colmar bathes in the Alsatian tradition. The “Little Venice”, unveils a maze of winding alleys with typical half-timbered houses, flower-filled fountains, and bridges. With its recent extension of the Unterliden Museum, its town's history, rich culinary and wine heritage, Colmar is a must-see for visitors traveling through the Alsace region.
