Our company

France à la Carte is a French incoming travel agency specialising in tailor- made, high quality & luxury tours throughout France.


Over the last 15 years, we have acquired a wealth of knowledge and on-the-ground experience and have discovered the truly authentic and rewarding culinary, cultural and natural treasures of France. We make sure to include a great variety of outdoor activities in the outstanding natural sites our destinations have to offer.


From the start, France à la carte has been offering short and long breaks for individuals, families and small groups from all over the world for leisure or professional purposes. Whether you are travelling as a group (Escorted Coach Tours) or as individual travellers (Private & Shared Escorted Tours), just tell us what you want to do, where/when you want to go and France à la Carte takes care of the rest.

France, anyway you want it

Our Private & Shared Escorted Tours have daily departures, which include transportation in comfortable mini-buses with professional licensed guides and accommodation in high quality establishments.
If you have a different private or semi-private tour in mind than those we suggest, just send us your request here and we will design your à la carte tour.

 

We also specialise in high quality wine tours for groups (Coach Wine Tours) and individual travellers (Escorted Wine Tours), where you’ll visit the most beautiful and prestigious vineyards in France and taste their vintage wines while also savouring delicious local food.
Other themed tours we offer include golf & lifestyle tours, cycling tours, skiing holidays and incentive trips.

 

So whether your group wants to taste Bordeaux wines, discover the Basque country, cycle in Brittany, golf in Gascony, go dog sledding with your colleagues on an incentive trip or learn how to cook like a gourmet chef, we can build the tour of your dreams thanks to our know-how and our large network of partners from coach companies to gourmet restaurants.
