Welcome to FRANCE AT LEISURE Group Travel
We simply love organising tailored itineraries for groups.
For many years we have tailored a multitude of:
- Educational and linguistic tours for schools,
- Themed tours around ANZAC, battlefield tours in the Somme, Flanders and Normandy,
- Conference and incentive groups from 20 to over 350 delegates
- Sporting groups to large events like the Rugby World Cup
or simply take a group through the scenic back roads of France or Paris.
Learning while exploring is truly a part of Australians’ life style and joining a tour group with similar interests makes it even more fun and enjoyable.

What some of our repetitive clients and tour escorts are saying:
My wife Kristin Devitt and I have had the pleasure to partner with Christian and the team at France@Leisure now since 2009 , in which time we have conducted six trips to the battlefields of Northern France and Normandy with groups as large as 40 and as small as 11. Each time we have benefited greatly from Christian’s impeccable contacts , and the attention to detail that is a hallmark of the way the team at France@Leisure do their business.
Their knowledge, flexibility and courtesy have made for an enduring partnership , which we will enjoy again for our 2018 tour to mark the 100th anniversary of Villers-Bretonneux and the Australian role in the Allied victory in 1918.
Kieran McCarthy - Family Lawyer
I have been associated with Christian and The France at Leisure Team for over ten years. They have helped me take over two hundred Aussies to France on six separate occasions highlighted by attendance at two Rugby World Cups.
The professionalism and intimate knowledge of France and the logistics of taking groups there is by far the best I have ever experienced. Top rate and highly recommended.

Somerville House organises a regular European Music Tour through France At Leisure.
Christian Blondeau and the team from France At Leisure have always given 110% of their time in working with us to ensure the best event outcome.
Their overseas contacts are excellent and their experience and advise of travel arrangements is second to none.
Stephen Williams - Somerville Director of Co-Curricular Music
I have been a client of the France at Leisure since 2002 and have been very pleased with their service. Christian Blondeau and his team helped me to organise 4 Student trips for my Senior French classes (2003, 2007, 2009, 2011) and have also taken 5 adult tours which not only explored France but other European countries. At the moment, we are about to depart on the fourth adult tour in September and we will travel to western France and Spain. Christian and his team have been most helpful in the organisation of these tours and I have booked all the flights, hotels and buses through the agency. All of my travellers, both students and colleagues and their partners, have been extremely happy with their travels in France.
