My name is Dom Surprenant and I founded The French South LLC simply for my love and enjoyment of the Luberon region. Years ago a friend advised me to go "east of Avignon" after learning I by-passed the area during an earlier France trip. I did, loved it instantly and have been returning ever since. 

I currently live in Maine via Massachusetts where I've spent many years specializing in residential architecture.

As an American of french ancestry, France is a natural extension of the culture & history of the French communities of New England and Quebec of which have been lifelong experiences. 

And as I find great enjoyment in sharing southern France experiences with other people, I would like to welcome you on a future trip!


"We want to thank you very much for making our trip to France very special. Your knowledge, enthusiasm, and love of Provence came through loud and clear. We appreciate the time and patience you extended towards us. We realize that your guidance allowed us to see a lot more than than we would have on our own. Thanks again."

"I want to make sure you know how much I appreciate all you did to make our time in Bonnieux so memorable. We had a most amazing time. I tell my friends I always made sure to ride in the car with you because you gave awesome tours.
Merci beaucoup." Beth in Maine 2014
