Welcome to the world’s first Women run B&B booking service for women travellers offering a special selection of handpicked, warm and secure homes in Paris, South of France, in Portugal and in Melbourne, Australia. More destinations to follow!

Our vision is to empower and support the boom of strong solo, duo and group women travelers in their 50s+, with a service that supports independent, safe, supportive and integrative female travel experiences. Empowering women to travel, to feel confident doing so alone and staying in homes that nurture this empowerment with likeminded hosts that are world travelling creatives also in their 50s+ 

Our mission is to offer special handpicked B&B homes that are authentic and charming family homes that feel just like ‘coming home’ and hosts who are dedicated to empowering other women to live their best travel lives while staying in their safe, supportive homes and to offer opportunities for female travelers to connect with like-minded travelers.

We cater to women travellers in solo, duos or groups, women travellers with their significant others/partners and/or friends - male or female.

We offer women run B&Bs, B&Bs that are designed / catered for women travellers and private apartments for women who prefer to live independently without the breakfast and hosted service of a classic B&B.

*Men ARE able to book on behalf of their women partners and spouses.
