The founders

Having turned their passion into profession, French Side Travel was founded by father and son:


At the age of 57, Paul is a dyed-in-the-wool globe trotter. Since he hitchhiked from France to India in the early 1980ies and his peregrination on the Camino de Santiago from Arles to Santiago de Compostela in 2015, he has traveled to more than 50 countries worldwide.
Today, he looks back on a 30 year-long journey with various European tour operators. He holds a Master’s Degree in tourism and economy from the Business School of Grenoble and an Executive MBA from the Neoma Business School in Paris.
Authentic travel is one of his priorities. With Paul’s help you will discover France in a different way!

co-founder and travel expert for France Mark


His son, Mark, 28, holds a Master in International Business from the Paris School of Business. The young Franco-German has gathered practical experiences in tourism and communication thanks to his studies, jobs and internships that took him from Paris via London to Cologne and from New Delhi to Sydney.
With French Side Travel Mark pursues an ambitious objective: he wants to make his childhood dream come true and share his passion for travelling with others!

Mark’s inventiveness and fresh vision add an enriching value to Paul’s solid knowledge and experience.
