Our local partner in France
"Traveling and meeting people from various cultures are two of the greatest pleasures in life. We're here to make sure that your tailor-made holiday to France is the best that it can be."
Our local partners in France know their country inside out - from the glittering City of Lights to the rolling lavender fields of Provence and the soaring peaks of the Pyrenees. Laurence founded her company in 2005 with a mission of bridging cultural gaps and providing incredible local experiences in Paris to international visitors. Since then, the company has grown immensely and their local expertise allows them to plan the very best tailor-made holidays throughout the entirety of France. Her team of multilingual staff come from diverse backgrounds, and are united by a passion for sharing their love of France with others. From the moment you step off the aeroplane into the French fresh air to the moment you’re heading home, they take care of every aspect of your time in France. They are members of Regional tourism committee Île-de-France (CRT), Professional Association of Solidarity in Tourism (APST), Convention and Visitors Bureau (OTCP), and Atout France. Our other partner company in France was founded in 2016 and specialises solely in the Pyrenees. They offer tailor-made, sustainable and immersive year-round adventure experiences in these lesser known mountains, and provide a highly personal service. By using hand-picked local experts located throughout the mountain range, travellers are ensured the best local experiences, enabling them to truly get to the heart of life in the Pyrenees. Just like all companies on TravelLocal both our French partners are locally-owned. TravelLocal is a member of ABTA and holds an ATOL licence. These are the UK's largest travel associations, so your payments to us are 100% financially protected. All payments are handled here in the UK. TravelLocal carefully selects each local travel company we work with so our clients can book safe in the knowledge that they are doing so with experienced, trusted and passionate experts in their destination.
