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

 

Laura

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

Bonjour !

I am the new addition to France Just For You team !

I was born in Paris and I grew up in South West of France. Since I am a child, I am passionate with foreign cultures and I am always happy to meet people from all over the World.

My second passion is gastronomy: I love cheese (the stronger it smells, the better it tastes to me!), country bread and wine.

After I graduated my Tourism degree in 2011, I went on a 5-year trip around the World to travel and work in hospitality. I spent sometimes in New-Zealand, Australia, South-East Asia, Reunion island and I ended up in South Africa before I came back to France.

After 6 years in beautiful Provence, I decided to get closer to my family and I settled down in the Loire Valley. This is where I met Emilie and Laura and joined the France Just For You team ! I believe my travels experiences and my knowledge about guests’ expectations in hospitality is a good combination for my work.

Voilà ! Talk to you soon !

This was our first visit to France to celebrate my 40th birthday. We started in Reims/Champagne region, Burgundy, Loire Valley Normandy and finished in Paris. Our 21 day trip was exceptional in every way! Emilie and her team thought of everything and their service from fist email to our return home could not be faulted. The only way I can describe …
Shelley & Andy
We feel lucky that we found Emilie online! Usually, we like to plan our own trips, but we did not have the language capabilities or confidence to plan this vacation alone. Emilie to the rescue! She listened to our concerns and wishes and planned the perfect trip. Loved the small boutique hotel in the perfect part of Paris, and all the bed and …

We have traveled in Europe a dozen times. Our trip to France, the Loire Valley and Normandy was one of the very best. Their custom self-guided tours are based on places and activities that interest you. Emelie listened to what we wanted and created an itinerary that was just what we wanted as well as some suggestions for other things we might try …
