Eléonore

Eléonore is the romantic member of the team! Rumour has it that she knows her classics better than anyone else, and if you want to strike up a conversation with her, just mention Jane Austen, and you'll be away!

When she hasn't got her nose stuck in a book in search of Mr Darcy, she can be found enjoying a cup of tea in one of her favourite tearooms in Lyon, or guiding tourists and friends through the streets of the city.

During her holidays, she enjoys going on organised expeditions, guidebook in hand! She can be seen visiting great museums and beautiful buildings, and is not averse to stopping off at a reputable wine cellar to taste the local tipple!

In short, Eléonore is passionate about her city, has stars in her eyes (and on her fingers, she's a great one for creative hobbies too!) and has always got a smile on her face!
