Marie Tesson

Founder

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.

Some suggestions for your biking tours in France...

Provence’s hidden treasures

When: Spring; summer; autumn

For who: Nature and sea lovers

Why: Discover one of France’s magnificent islands in an unusual way; experience fresh air and wild landscapes

Description: Is it possible that France’s Ile de Ré was designed especially for cycling? It sure seems like it! When summer rolls around, touring the island by bike is the best way to get around, so why not leave your car behind for a while? As you take in stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, green towpaths, mysterious lighthouses, oyster beds, and small, charming harbours, you’ll experience a unique part of France– and all its local traditions, too.

Mountain biking in the Pyrenees

When: Summer; autumn

For who: Sportsmen; cycling and Tour de France addicts

Why: You’re after both gorgeous natural landscapes and physical challenges

Description: This is certainly one of our most challenging bike tours in France. You’ll ride along the same paths as the “Grands” of the Tour de France– from the Col d’aspen to the Col de Peyresourde and Tourmalet. This level isn’t for everyone, but if you are an experienced cyclist, live your dream! Join these thousands of cyclists from around the world and follow in the wake of Christopher Froome, Eddy Merckx or Bernard Hinault. The mythical paths of the Pyrenees will help you live the dream. Enjoy the breathtaking green mountainsides, the generosity and kindness of locals, and delicious local gastronomy between rides. What better way to reward you for all your efforts?

Discover Burgundy’s celebrated vineyards by bike

When: Spring; summer; autumn

For who: A love of wine, shared among friends

Why: Explore remarkable vineyards and meet some of the region’s renowned winemakers

Description: Cycling through Burgundy along small vineyard paths is a rare and luxurious pleasure. Surrounded by picturesque winemaking villages and winning through vineyards where some of the world’s finest bottles are produced, you’ll surely fall under Burgundy’s spell. You’ll also get a close look at the region’s centuries-old winemaking culture: in the middle of mythical plots or “terroirs”, you might meet a winegrower working the land between two rows of vines, another cutting the vine to fortify the coming grapes of the year, or another measuring the vine’s maturity to better guess the crucial harvest date. Open your eyes wide, and take in all the magic of these renowned lands.

Between land and sea in Brittany by bike

When: Spring; summer; autumn

For who: Nature and sea lovers

Why: Breathe in the sea breeze; explore wonderful Breton landscapes– both on land and on the sea

Description: From small fishing ports to high cliffs, discover all the wealth of Brittany by bike. Continually reshaped by changing tides and light, you won’t tire of this region’s magnificent and distinctive landscapes. In this wild maritime setting, you will discover small harbours, a string of islands, long whitesand beaches, the impressive lighthouse of the Virgin Island (the world’s tallest)– and much more. As the miles fly by under your feet, you’ll pass between land and sea, enjoying diverse natural sights that you’ soon wont forget.

In the heart of the Loire Valley by bike

When: Spring; summer; autumn

For who: Bike and castle enthusiasts

Why: Discover the Loire Valley region and its magnificent castles in an original way

Description: Discover the unique charms of the Loire region by cycling along the wild shores of the Sarthe river, and immerse yourself in a rich historical and cultural heritage. From Alençon, pedal between small villages of character such as Saint Céneri Le Gérei and Saint Loenard des Bois, before heading onward to the beautiful cobbled streets of the old center of Sablé sur Sarthe.

Used in the proposal of Mont-Michel. Marie-San from exclusive France tours has been very kind from her first contact, she was flexible on the schedule and the budget to best meet my requirements. In the preparation phase, we were able to communicate with you immediately by phone and email despite the 7-hour time difference. Mrs. Christèle, our guide, and the photographer Mrs Pauline were also professional and very kind, and I was able to make a proposal that was very satisfying as a result. If you would like to succeed in the proposal during a trip in France, we recommend exclusive France tours.

What a trip! The honeymoon was wonderful, and planned incredibly well, we can’t think of anything wrong. The detail on the itinerary was perfect and the guides were outstanding. Everyone was very knowledgeable and easy going. The special tours and lunches were just that, very special. Lots of memories to keep! Thank you again for helping me plan a successful honeymoon. I look forward to the next trip. We will contact you for any France trips in the future. Thanks!

Marie Tesson listens, internalizes what she’s heard, crafts well-thought out itineraries, isn’t afraid to suggest alternatives, and communicates earnestly with her clients. For our ‘Tour de France’, she has consistently gone beyond my expectations and I rate her new baby, Exclusive France Tours, a 10 out of 10.

I want to thank you for your love and support in making it possible for us to have the most amazing proposal day. Thank you for helping me in making this a very special and memorable day in our life. Everything went very well and we are extremely happy!

We are now celebrating in the French Riviera and reminiscing how prefect everything was!

Dear Marie and Emeline, Thank you both for all of your help with this itinerary you have both been amazing we cannot believe how we have been able to organise everything that G. requested at such short notice. Your team has been amazing. I will certainly advise our lifestyle team to use your company for any future requests. We appreciate all of your help. As Julia said we can’t wait to see pictures and hear from G. how it all went!

Highly recommend. I am not easily impressed, but Marie managed the impossible throughout our entire Champagne experience. She was able to secure private and exclusive access to prestigious houses, which is a privilege reserved only for major distributors and celebrities. Each visit was unique, exclusive, educational and delicious. Looking forward to working with her to explore the rest of France.
