French native, born in the city of Nantes in the West of France, I like to show people the behind the scenes of my country. I traveled a lot around the world and lived in the United States, Ireland, Australia and Chile. I have a deep knowledge of the expectations of foreigners who come to visit France. Customer service and attention to detail are very important to me. I really like to please people and make sure that they are completely satisfied with our services. Before creating Finding France, I used to work as a tour guide for an incoming travel agency based in Paris.... Graduate of a Master's degree in management, I also worked as an event planner for individuals and companies.
The diversity of the landscapes and the abundance of culinary delights that our country has to offer. Each region has so many local products, it’s amazing!
Take your time! Immerse yourself into the French culture. Don't try to do everything. Meet the locals. Share authentic moments with artisans and local producers.
Experience, share and discover.
I wish you to experience the beautiful France that I love, share a unique moment with your friends or family and to discover French history and culture, while feeling safe and cared for throughout your trip.
I am a French native and lived many years in the United Kingdom. My work experience has always been centered around my passions, which are travelling, history, archaeology, the arts, and literature… oh, and I forgot… good food and tasty wines too!! I also love trekking, which has led me to venture all over France and some parts of the continents of Africa and Europe.
Our pride in preserving and sharing with the world our beautiful cultural heritage; whether it is Monet’s water lilies, a château in the Loire Valley, a tarte Tatin in a Paris café, cheese in a Normandy market, or a bottle of Champagne.
Since I was young, I have been passionate about understanding what makes a culture different from another. While living overseas, I realized how my French identity followed me wherever I went. This heritage is multifaceted, stemming from our history, environment, traditions and social representations. In one word - culture.
During our journey together, I will pay a lot of attention to create the most comfortable conditions for you to enjoy our landscapes and cultural anecdotes, but also to provide time for exchange and adapt to your wishes. Leaving a memorable moment is what drives me.
Sharing is caring.
As sharing is caring, I am very eager to highlight the different aspects of French culture through the various trips which you will take with Finding France. I trust this will give you an authentic feeling of what makes France and French people so special.
I want their experience in France to be different from what they had imagined and to exceed their expectations. I believe in a well-organized itinerary that still allows for a sense of freedom, so they can experience the authentic aspects of our country and have opportunities for meaningful encounters.
Of French origin, I was born in Île de France in Saint-Germain-en-Laye (just like Louis XIV). I've worked in several museums in Paris, including the Louvre, and also spent six years in a Parisian travel agency. I have a passion for adventure and exploration, and I love introducing our travelers to a side of France that goes beyond the typical tourist paths. I have had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout our continent as well as in Asia, and I particularly appreciate Japanese culture.
I take great pride in our architectural, gastronomic, and cultural heritage. Our open-mindedness and love for France are major strengths that allow us to enthusiastically share the secrets of our beautiful country.
I’m a French native. I’ve always been interested in discovering new things. This includes discovering countries, geography, culture, and people. I’ve traveled to Canada, the US and many places around Europe still wishing to visit the other continents and especially Asia.
The South west area near Bordeaux. In the city of Arcachon and the Dune du Pilat.
Be interested and curious about the places they visit. Being aware of what we see makes us appreciate more. To me, looking to create social interactions while traveling makes travel more memorable.
Look forward to inspiring encounters and fascinating discoveries - and always be prepared for the next culinary delicacy to come your way !
Of German origin, I have lived in Cameroon, Mali, and the United States before settling in France...and eventually getting married to a Frenchman! Having the gift of three tongues and happy to share what I know as a professional guide and conference speaker, words won't fail me as I welcome you in Provence to uncover its fascinating history and artful traditions.
Welcoming YOU and sharing its beauties ! Let's admire and discover together, observe and experience, taste and smell, ... and then YOU tell ME!
Born in Burgundy some years ago, I have been living in different places in France and also travelling in many countries, particularly in Europe for my professional activities, mostly orientated to Sales and Marketing. Elisabeth, my wife and I used to welcome visitors coming from all over the world in our guesthouse near Beaune in Burgundy. A real pleasure to make them discover our local "food and wine"! This corresponds precisely to my current proposal in Provence, where you will also enjoy the sea, the clear and sunny sky (sometimes windy), the hills and the mountains... without forgetting obviously the historical local treasures and the wonderful landscapes...
Before all, I like to share my discovers, whereas my impressions with others and obviously to hear from you and from your own experiences. Waiting to seeing you very soon and tasting a glass of Rosé wine with a "pissaladière" (anchovy, olive oil..) in a friendly winery closed to the "Montagne St Victoire" (Paul Cezanne..) or, if you prefer, on a terrasse in front of the Mediterranean Sea.
I wish you to be touched and impressed by the various faces that you will discover in Provence. What a difference, for example, between the "elegant" atmosphere of Aix en Provence and the crowded and "colored" Cannebiere in Marseille.... To me, we all have to be travelers, even in our own region, in order to be always ready for new experiences and meetings.
Take time to visit little known places, get to know local people and exchange about each other’s customs and traditions. They should not only see the usual touristic areas, but also try and discover the numerous wonders that more remote places have to offer.
I was born and raised in the North of France, and have always lived there. I worked in different fields that have taught me a lot and have allowed me to meet people from various backgrounds that introduced me to their traditions and shared with me difficult moments of their lives. These things sometimes make you reflect about what you’re lucky enough to have.
Every region has its own identity thanks to its food, its spoken accent and its traditions. It is essential to take the time to admire a craftsman’s work, taste their local products, learn how an object was made and discover forgotten crafts. You’ll be able to experience all of it in our beautiful country, not to mention the landscapes that unveil their amazing colors throughout the seasons. There’s nothing more beautiful than watching the sun set over the sea or admiring the fall colors in our gorgeous forests!
