Many travelers have no real occasion to spend time with French people excepting, perhaps, a waiter or a taxi driver. The objective of France Just For You is to overcome these barriers and let people get to know each other. This is a new way of traveling and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Emilie & Guillaume

Born from the will of a French couple to share their love for their country, France Just For You is a family-operated tour company dedicated to organizing customized self-drive trips to France.

We, Emilie and Guillaume, met in 2003. After years traveling and working around the world, we are now settled in the heart of the Loire Valley, in the lovely town of Langeais.

Since childhood we have both learned to discover France off the beaten path, from quiet country paths and charming picturesque villages to bustling cities full of history. In love with our beautiful native land and its welcoming people, we want to share with you its hidden beauties.

Since Emilie has grown up in a B&B house, we are truly convinced that staying at a Bed&Breakfast home is the ideal way to discover the real France and enjoy the genuine hospitality of French people.

We organize "A La Carte" self-guided tours far away from the crowds. We are more than happy to share with you our selection of B&Bs, services and useful tips to make the most of your French experience!

A bientôt,     Emilie

Shortly after finishing a Master’s in French history at Penn State, I married Jean-François from Burgundy and moved to France.

I have had the opportunity to live and travel in many different regions in France. I also had the pleasure of running my own B&B in the Loire Valley for several years. Today I am proud to be part of France Just For You.

My love for France has deepened, and continues to, even after 20 years of living here.

I am still enchanted when I come across an old village church with a local market out front, see a chateau floating in the distance while driving, or chatting with my table neighbor while people-watching from the terrace of my favorite café.

I look forward to crafting an experience for you that benefits from our knowledge and integrates your personal interests and passions. Meet the people, discover the treasures, taste the authenticity…

Welcome to France!     Laura

My boyfriend and I spent a week in Paris last month and we decided that we would do a couple of day-tours outside of the city during our trip. We really wanted to avoid the typical tour-bus day-tour and the crowds that come along with these kinds of tours – we wanted something more personalized that would allow us to go at our own pace. I found the …

What a wonderful trip with personal guides Emilie planned for us! I would recommend her without reservation on your trip through Normandy, Mt St. Michel and the Loire Valley. The guidebook, which was chock full of important information (be sure to read it all!) was invaluable to us and became our bible.

I communicated directly with Emilie who is very serious about their business of providing self guided tours. She prepared a proposal that matched what I had requested. Payment arrangements were easy. We really got to visit with local people. We rarely saw a tour bus. France - Just For You arranged visits with guides (wine tasting day in St. Emilion …
