Beatrice M.

Biarritz, France

Bonjour, I'm Béatrice a Private Guide that offers Private tours in the South West part of France: Bordeaux, Dordogne, the Basque Country as well as any other parts of France upon request.

After living in foreign countries half of my life, I recently moved back to France and choose to establish myself in the beautiful Basque Country.
During a previous visit, I felt in love, with the beauty of the ocean, the countryside as well as the architecture, the gastronomy and the multitude of sports activities you can find here (golf, surf, hiking, ski…) and decided that this will be the place to live if I ever move back to France.
And here I am, enjoying the peaceful and healthy way of living of the Basques !

Born and raised in France, I started living in the USA when I was 25. I completed my studies in Travel and Marketing there, then moved to Spain where I worked for an international hotel company, some years later I moved to South Turkey where I opened my own travel business ( tailor made worldwide Vip tours ) and a scuba-diving center.

Throughout my 25 years of experience in international resorts and my own company I developed a rather unique approach on what makes a tour unforgettable.
I will be happy to create fabulous tailor-made vacations for 1 day, 2 days or longer, custom plan any type of tours for very small groups, and offer you a different touch of France.
My mission is to inspire you, to offer you innovative journeys, unique insider's travel opportunities as an art of living in combination with some of the best experience.
It will be my great pleasure to help you organize your vacation !

As your private guide in France, I will help you discover rich and charming regions through my eyes and I will personalized the tours regarding to your interest.

Besides my travel business I'm a yoga teacher, an Ayurveda therapist, a scuba-diver teacher, I also play golf, tennis and love to ski. I enjoy going to exhibitions, theater, cinema, opera, concerts and good restaurants !

Let me show you the beautiful parts of France !

I can custom tours for disabled people with a car accommodating a wheelchair in Bordeaux region.

Tours in English, French, I also speak German, Spanish and Turkish.

Message me today, I'll take good care of you !

Beatrice is an amazing guide, knowledgeable about her topics, a terrific driver, and a really lovely person. She created a wonderful experience in Bordeaux and Dordogne that we will not soon forget. She really took our input into the stops we made with interesting wine and food and architecture highlights along the way. Thank you Beatrice. We enjoyed so much getting to know you. Lyn & Pete
