Maisons-Laffitte

languages :
Anglais/English, Français/French

I’m from Gothenburg in Sweden, but I’ve lived in France since 1986. Having worked in a wide range of sectors - ranging from language school director to travel agent manager – I decided to complete a training course to become an equestrian tourist guide. Dressage rider competition, I have been working in tourism for 30 years so I wanted to combine my passion and professional experience. I’m fascinated by Maisons-Laffitte and the surrounding region. I want to share this enthusiasm and show you beautiful and unexpected places, as well as the unique atmosphere at the Cité du Cheval. All our guides have an official equestrian guide or aide diploma. They are pleased to make you discover the wildlife and history of Maisons-Laffitte and the Forest of Saint Germain.
