Jean Francoise Mounielou
Jean

Jean couldn’t resist a spell in Spain in 1993 just before he started working in the Luxury hotels industry. He had studied at the Sorbonne and then worked as a lawyer in Paris but the sunny days in Seville in that first half of 1993 changed his life. Jean, born in the Pyrenees Mountains, matured a love for Spain and the Spanish that has permeated his life ever since.

During the corporate years as a lawyer, Jean was always drawn to explore the regions of Spain and Portugal in the company of friends and family.
After years of intense work in the MICE industry, creating new opportunities for Incentive Travel all around the Iberian Peninsula, the chance to start Terra Traditions arose after hosting various groups of American travelers. Terra finally launched in early 2009 and Jean has not looked back since. He has been sharing the secrets of the Iberian people, food, and wine over our destinations, always making sure that everyone involved in the Terra project has as much fun as he does.
