France Tours:
Stay in Chateaus, Country Houses and Wineries

France is a place where you can "live like a god" according to a Dutch saying. Connoisseurs of fine wines and cuisine will agree: nowhere else on earth can you find a harmonious mixture of both in such abundance. And yet France is much more than culinary delights. The second largest country in Europe extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea, from the coast of Normandy to the Pyrenean Mountains. The diversity of cultures and landscapes is staggering. Our tailor-made tours of France are designed to acquaint inspired travelers with this diversity.

Umfulana custom builds France vacation packages. What makes our France vacations special is the collection of charming inns. Whether you are interested in coastal tours of Brittany or the Côte d'Azur, wine tastings in Burgundy, or the natural wonders of the French Alps, we offer carefully selected accommodations ranging from small wineries to exquisite chateaus. All our tours of France have two things in common: They are all designed to acquaint you with the country and its people and they offer good value for the money.
