Laventeli's team Our guides


Laventeli is a Destination Management Company serving travel agency groups.

Laventeli's services encompass the whole of France - from Paris to Nice, from Brittany to Burgundy... or even from Champagne to the Basque Country! Our offices are situated in the centre of Paris and Nice.


Laventeli's historical background is fresh and dynamic. The Laventeli idea was born at the end of summer 2006; the Laventeli project was officially launched in September 2006; and upon obtaining official French travel agency certification, the company was open for business in March 20, 2007. Laventeli has two owner-operators: Ms. Sanna Meskanen (50%) and Mr. Petri Ahola (50%).

Sanna Meskanen has worked in the travel industry in Finland, France and even Egypt, and she has lived in France since 1996. She has a Master's degree in political science.

Petri Ahola has worked in travel in Finland, Germany and France, and he has lived in France since 1999. Petri has university degrees in both the humanities and the arts.

Both Sanna and Petri have several years of experience in the French travel business and DMC-management.


Cooperating with our customers to achieve the best possible results:

At Laventeli the key to successful customer relations is mutual trust, listening and open communication. We are more than happy to receive feedback on our work so that we may continue improving our services for your benefit. We wish to become well-acquainted with our business partners and are aiming for a durable, successful and even fun work relationship. For us, a regular customer is worth his weight in gold. Every year Laventeli organises personal surprises to thank their faithful customers for our mutually rewarding relationship.

A passion for quality:

Service quality and quality control are of utmost importance to us. Every year, we personally tour our main travel destinations in France and verify the state of our partner hotels. We do not sell hotel rooms in hotels which do not meet our quality criteria. We aim to be as objective as possible in the hotel descriptions included in our offers, and the descriptions are often based on our personal visits to the hotels in question. We also use the best transport companies and guides available in France.

Newest trends:

We follow current trends in the travel industry and try to anticipate the future. We wish to offer our customers the best, the newest, the services that others have not even heard of yet. We are ahead of the pack and constantly on the lookout for exciting new ideas and programmes. We want to offer surprising programmes, with that "special something": the little extras that make a Laventeli trip a unique experience.

Creativity and PRIME PLUS:

At Laventeli we allow creativity to blossom. We offer a new approach and a wide array of programme ideas, with a potent mix of old and new. We want to offer an unforgettable experience in France. Laventeli's creativity also encompasses positive surprises. We offer to each and every group that chooses our programmes in addition to accommodation services our special "PLUS" services. Every "PLUS" group will receive much more than they originally expected. We always tell the travel agency before hand the details of this "PRIME PLUS"- bonus service.

À la carte programmes:

We tailor all our programmes to fit the specific needs of your group, respecting all your wishes and desires. We strive to offer you the best possible alternatives for your group, using our broad experience in the French travel sector. Then, together with your cooperation, we finalise the programme of your dreams. We sincerely hope that our travel agency customers provide us with as much information as possible about their groups - what kind of people make up the group, what their wishes are, what they have possibly already seen/done on previous trips. All input is vitally important, enabling us to come up with the best possible offer specifically geared to the needs of your group. We truly want our programme offers to meet your every need - down to the minutest details in quality level and customer desires.

Rapid service and our SPEEDY-advantage:

We guarantee rapid, efficient and personal service. Try us and you'll be amazed: ça marche - it works! We provide all group inquiries with a same-day answering service, and our offer service is instigated immediately. We only work with the French hotels and travel partners that meet Laventeli's stringent quality and speed criteria. Thus we are able to provide our customers with a rapid, efficient and functional service concept. In certain situations we also reward customers' rapid decision making: Laventeli offers, where applicable, a SPEEDY-advantage, i.e. an advantage for rapid reservations. When you confirm your group reservation within the time limit set by Laventeli, you will receive a significant SPEEDY-advantage - clear savings for rapid reservations!
