The Globe Secret Adventure
Founded in 2010 by entrepreneurs and passionate globetrotters, Globe Secret is much more than a traditional travel agency.
Globe Secret is an agency dedicated to helping discerning independent and international travelers find and book exciting and unusual places to travel in some of the world’s most beautiful and fascinating locations. The site features a growing collection of our favorite small hotels (under 30 rooms), guesthouses, retreats, eco-lodges, private rentals and unforgettable travel experiences, each personally visited by us or our correspondents.
Our ambition is to examine them with total honesty, lots of detail and lots of photos.
Each location is in some way unique, whether in its design, its natural setting, its owners or the activities on offer.
From jungle treehouses to historic palaces, we’ve put together a truly charming and eclectic range.
Our principle: if we don’t like it, we won’t offer it! Nor do we insist on a certain number of stars (with us, you won’t find bland chain hotels or large resorts), rather, all our locations offer a memorable experience. And we don’t choose our addresses on the basis of cost (which varies from €50 to €1,000 a night), but try to ensure that they are sensitive to local nature and culture, so that the environment doesn’t have to pay.
The agency that takes you where others won't go
Authentic Places, Unique Experiences
Rather than a tour operator, we are an independent agency, highly sought after for authentic travel and transparent service. We are in direct contact with accommodation owners and local correspondents. While offering impartial and free advice, we want to help our travellers escape the traditional holiday package!
The Globe Secret team
Over twenty years ago, he explored South America, discovering its secrets: its places and its people. Inspired by encounters and discoveries around the world, he has patiently catalogued all these unusual places to stay. The aim was to enable travelers to escape from standardized, soulless accommodations and stay in these incredible places with singular charm.
Everything that followed was born of this simple objective, and over 20 years later, it’s still what he does.

A travel memory: realizing my dream of traveling thousands of kilometers aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway, across the largest country in the world (Russia), discovering vast natural landscapes and meeting extraordinary people!

One of her unforgettable travel memories: waking up in the heart of the Wadi Rum desert after a Bedouin evening, surrounded by the magical silence of the desert and the natural beauty of a lunar landscape.
