Lifestyle Experiences for Upscale Travelers
AXUS Launched to Enhance Travel Planning
Eurobound is expanding its 2017 Europe program, with more castle stays, increased culinary experiences, and new trip-planning technology for agents. The upscale specialist in custom travel to Europe is:
- adding castles, palaces and former royal residences in 8 countries to its roster,
- increasing the selection of culinary and wine experiences in Paris,
- Introducing Axus, new mobile technology for travel agents and their clients to stay up-to-the minute on all travel plans.
Castle and Palace Stays:
In 2017, Eurobound travelers can stay in castles and palaces located in eight different countries. Examples of castles and former royal residences available through Eurobound include the 12th century Castello di Petroia located in the rolling hills near Perugia, Italy. Other choices include Amberley Castle in the English countryside, a luxury property, whose colorful origins date back to medieval times. Travelers can also choose to stay at Parador de Alarcon, a 1,000 year old Moorish castle in Cuenca, Spain, designated a “Spanish Property of Cultural Interest,” or at the stately Schlosshotel Kronberg in a wooded, park-like setting outside Frankfurt, once home to Frederick II, the last German Emperor. Other castles on the Eurobound roster are located in France, Scotland, Ireland, and Portugal.
“Through our increased range of castle accommodations, travelers interested in historic settings can have an entire custom itinerary built around some of Europe’s finest royal properties,” says Brigitte Armand, Eurobound president.

New Culinary Experiences in Paris:
Cooking, chocolate, wine and cheese tastings
Eurobound is adding more cooking, chocolate, wine and cheese tasting “insider” experiences in Paris for 2017. Among experiences is an exclusive cooking school visit, where clients go shopping at a traditional French market, accompanied by a chef to select ingredients which they prepare for a gourmet lunch. Other experiences include a private chocolate and macaron tasting tour, and a wine workshop at a typical French wine bar. For cheese lovers, Eurobound has added a private visit to a cheese cellar for a tasting complete with wine and champagne, along with a private guide who explains the secrets of the cheese making process. All Eurobound Paris experiences include hotel transfer by private chauffeur.
