Marie Tesson


Forever in search of something new, I love wandering through France to uncover hidden treasures. Epicurian by nature, I am enthralled by culture in every form, wine (with a special affinity for those from Bourgogne and Rhone valley), gastronomy and anything out of the ordinary.

Our Formula for Success

Our formula for success is triple-pronged. We bring over 20 years of travel and event management experience to the table, alongside an extensive knowledge of France’s much-celebrated culture: its history, cuisine, wines and natural wonders. We combine our expertise with your ideas, vision and specific requirements. Whether you have only a vague notion of what you’re looking for or a fully developed concept, we will work closely with you to develop and plan the perfect evening: offering possibilities for the theme, venue, catering choices and entertainment.

We understand you are looking for something genuinely unique: an “occasion to end all occasions” – leaving you and your guests with wonderful and unforgettable memories. Memories that will spark anecdotes at family gatherings or company meetings for years to come. For our corporate clients, we help you create the competitive edge. We plan exceptional company events in France that set you apart to your customers an perfectly translate your corporate values and brand.

We love to add surprise elements and unexpected touches to your special event. These are the ineffable sparks that create a unique ambience, stimulating conversation and congeniality.

Designing your enchanting evenings & events

Authentic rich traditions

Exclusive France Tours also values authenticity. We are proud of France’s rich culture and play our part in honouring it. Aspects such as the theme, venue, catering and entertainment can reflect not only your hospitality but showcase the celebrated traditions of a specific region. By involving local artisans, the ambassadors of a given French region, your guests will gain cultural experience and insight that is truly rich.

Our role is entirely flexible

We can wholly plan and manage your special event, from working up a theme to finding locations and partner vendors and managing logistics. But we can also play a more limited role in line with your specific requirements: this might include the selection and bookings of hotels, restaurants, or organising transportation for your guests.

Together we choose the appropriate location for your event. We draw all our inspiration from you: your requirements, vision and primary goals for the event. Once we settle on a main theme, we will find the perfect location and venue to bring your enchanted soiree to life. Fortunately, France is certainly not lacking in remarkable places!

The possibilities are as wide as your imagination is

Together we can give life to your dream event. We build on your desired theme, then locate remarkable venues: these are often ones not generally open to the public, and situated in isolated areas. We work tirelessly to fulfill your vision, from designing every small detail to the unfolding of the grand evening itself – ensuring the night flows seamlessly and smoothly. This allows you to relax and thoroughly enjoy every moment.

Looking for inspiration?

You wish to celebrate a special event. We work with you to find the optimal location. Drawing from our experience of over 20 years, we can open wonderful, inspiring places suitable for any occasion just for you and your guests: glamorous cocktails, formal balls, gastronomic dinners or private French wine tastings. There are so many beautiful places in France to explore; and so many exceptional venues to discover, after all…

Seeking true prestige?

A historical monument or a French chateau may bring the distinction and refinement you are after. The sublime chateaux of the Loire Valley may provide an ideal setting; there are also wonderful castles situated in other regions around the country.

Why not add an original touch with some rarefied entertainment, from dance to music and theatre, or even fireworks? This can add a note of fantasy and magic to reflect your theme. You wish to celebrate a major event and to invite numerous guests along to revel in your success or other happy event? We find extraordinary sites around France which can accommodate such events: prestigious locations for magical cocktails, formal galas or charity benefits, company dinners, weddings and much more.

Looking for a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere?

The possibilities are extensive: a charming Provençal country house that inspires a sense of comfort and ease; an abbey that evokes a sense of magical timelessness; a cellar in a prestigious vineyard estate; or a night under the stars at 3,000 metres in altitude. Perhaps you’re looking to celebrate an unforgettable luxury honeymoon in France with your beloved, or an intimate reception to mark your nuptials. Again, if you’re looking for something truly out of the ordinary, you’ll find just that by working with us.

Working with you to understand your wishes, we will find your perfect location. We then help you to design and produce an event to showcase the location and you’re your special evening needs.

Unusual places, private properties, prestigious castles, provençal bastide, abbeys in stunning natural settings, mythical and festive places… whatever your project, we will find THE location to give the required dimension to your evening.
