Basque Country

A beacon of beauty, the Basque Region captivates all who visit. Every landscape is like a postcard, from the dramatic cliffs to the sandy beaches of the Bay of Biscay. In just one hour you can go from the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains to the Atlantic Coastline.

Bordeaux

A UNESCO city with beautiful paved streets, Bordeaux will delight your senses with its world famous vineyards and oysters at Arcachon Bay.

Burgundy

Famous for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, Burgundy houses some of the most celebrated vineyards in the world

Carcassonne

Medieval Carcassonne is probably the most impressive fortified medieval town to be found.

Champagne

Ah la Champagne….so we need to say more?

Ok...Taittinger, Dom Perignon, Laurent Perrier, Mumm, Veuve Clicquot, Ruinart, Moët & Chandon...you still want more? Then you need to come!

Dordogne

Our self-guided tours of Dordogne include visits to medieval towns, impressive fortresses perched above the Dordogne river, and prehistoric painted caves.

Loire Valley

A gentle climate, a flavorful local cuisine and delicious wines, and the hearty welcome of Touraine people will make your Loire Valley driving tour very special.

Lyon

The gastronomic capital of France, the city of Lyon is also an open history book. Each of Lyon’s neighborhoods are very different and you will be enchanted discovering this dynamic city.

North

Although not the first place visitors think of when traveling to France, Lille and Northern France provide interesting places, good food and a unique ambiance for those willing to adventure North . . .

Paris

Known throughout the world as the "City of Light", Paris is celebrated for its beautiful city plan, its architecture, museums, flea markets and sidewalk cafés.

Provence

Feel the warm breeze carrying scents of lavender; sit at a bistro terrace at sunset, lulled by the song of the cicada; stroll through some of the most beautiful villages in France

Somme

North of Paris, the Somme region is at the crossroads between Flanders and Paris, the capital of France. During World War I, the Somme region was turned into battlefields which are moving and interesting to visit. In addition, the town of Amiens, with its amazing Cathedral and the Hortillonages (floating gardens); is a good base to explore the area and enjoy the local cuisine.

 

Verdun

Located at the crossroad of France, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium, Verdun region has always been a strategic area.

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 are a group of Wine Aficionados and we recently traveled to Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and Paris and were very impressed with this service. It took us quite some time to formalize (and agree) what we wanted in terms of places and wineries we wanted to visit, but in the end "France Just for You" came through with excellent organization and …

Whie the weather was mostly on the rainy/windy side, the trip was so well planned and organized, with so much to see, that we did not pay much attention to the weather. All B&Bs were excellent in terms of accommodation, food (sic!) and very welcoming. All hosts were bi-lingual and …
