France is filled with historical sites, monuments, quaint villages, and private domains (closed to the general public) that you’ll enjoy visiting or revisiting. Finding France organizes extraordinary visits and tours that will take you to the most unique places in France. Come and meet our winemakers, chefs, cheesemakers, potters and artists – the keepers of our living heritage.
Go behind the scenes of a pastry chef’s kitchen and discover how to make the perfect croissants, macarons, and French baguettes. Visit the family owned cellar of a local winemaker in the Champagne area and taste his excellent millésimes. Enjoy a unique wine tasting with the owner in his living room…Explore the Chantilly château and see the 17th century irrigation system created for André Le Notre’s royal gardens. France will reveal its secrets and take you on a journey in the heart of the country and culture.
Discovering France off the beaten path and immersing yourself in French culture in a friendly atmosphere has never been easier.
Finding France is here to make your visit memorable!
All of our tours start with you - what you’d like to do in terms of excursions, sightseeing, accommodations, tours, transportation, and food. We strive to design a personalized journey that goes beyond your expectations!
In order to design your trip, we rely on our team’s approved and tested itineraries. We have created an extensive travel log where you’ll be able to find a selection of unique accommodations (charming boutique hotels, castles, private châteaux...), restaurants and tables d’hôtes (traditional or gourmet cuisine), tours of exceptional historical sites off the beaten path, and different encounters with local artisans and producers.
On the day of your arrival, a member of our team will meet you. He or she will be your Personal Travel Assistant throughout your journey. We will accompany you to your chosen excursions and visits in a private car or minibus and will be at your service for the duration of your trip.
“I am so happy to welcome you to “Finding France.” I founded this incoming travel agency because I love my country. I’m passionate about sharing the hidden gems of our beautiful regions.
At Finding France, we strive to break down the clichés about France that often mislead international travelers. Our goal is to go behind the scenes for an in-depth look at French culture – all while taking time to build relationships. To this end, we encourage and arrange for you to meet with locals.
We aspire to allow travelers from different cultures and backgrounds to broaden their horizons and share on a different level with others. The very essence of my passion/profession is to introduce another culture’s “savoir-vivre”, “savoir-être” and “savoir-faire” (etiquette, social skills and know-how) to you.
The journeys we design become unique moments, wonderful memories, and even new international friendships.”
Clément, Founder of Finding France and Personal Travel Assistant
