A hot air balloon ride is an amazing experience ! It is very peaceful and relaxing. From the balloon, you will discover many properties, gardens and landscapes you can't see from the ground.

These are few tips we'd like to share with you :

1. Nobody can tell you in advance where you’ll land. It means that you can't be guaranteed to see this castle or this town. Depending on the winds, in 1 hour ride, you can travel over 5 miles or 12 miles. A car from the balloon company will follow the flight and pick you up at the arrival point to take you back to your car at the departure point. 

2. Balloons are very sensitive to weather conditions: a little wind and the ride can be postponed.

3. It gets very hot when the pilot turns the gas jets on. We warmly recommend you to wear a cap or a hat. It is usually about 6°C (42°F) warmer in the gondola than on the ground.



If you understand and agree in all these points, you’ll have a great time !!

What FRANCE JUST FOR YOU can do for you?

As a hot air balloon ride is subject to weather conditions and can be postponed or cancelled, we take care of the booking for you and organize a ride with a very friendly English speaking pilot. Then you'll pay directly the pilot, so you do not have to advance the funds if by any bad luck, you could not get on the balloon.

My husband and I found France Just For You on the internet, while trying to plan a trip to France. We knew, given our desire to see both Normandy and the south of France, that we would spend hours deliberating about the details. We provided Emily with a budget, the duration of our vacation and a few must-sees and she provided us with a three-week …

For our journey in the Loire Valley, we could not have hoped for more gracious, firendly and hospitable hosts. They made us feel like long time friends. It has been wonderful sharing this time with this French family and we hope we may meet again. The guidebook was totally professional and indispensable ! Aurevoir et merci beaucoup

One of the best planned and personalised travel experiences that my family and I have ever had.

We would highly recommend “France Just for You” and will most defiantly use the services of Emilie again. At the end of April 2017 we spend two weeks in France visiting Normandy, Mont Saint Michel, Lorie Valley and Paris. We can would sum the trip in one word “Perfect!”. Emilie well prepared us with a personalized book, (179 pages) , describing our …
Ricki & Craig
There are not enough superlatives, or kind words, to describe the level of service Emilie, with France Just for You, provided us from the moment we contacted her, throughout our trip, and even her thoughtful emails upon our return. We contacted Emilie with a list of all the places we wished to go, the things we hoped to do, and our budget. We …
