Hi! I'm Stéphanie, the owner of Travels France guesthouse.

I'm a French Solo Traveller, Travel Blogger and Hospitality Expert, specialised in the traditional cultures and festivals.

Conscious of the difficulty to travel in a foreign country, I've decided in 2015 to help you, English-speaking foreigners, to plan your trip to France.

Happy owner of a big house I bought at the end of 2014, I now propose the stay in a private flat of my house, and my guiding service in my area (the south-west of France) and beyond. I provide a tailored experience of the way of life "à la française" to you, according to your tastes and needs.



The Basque Country is situated in the south-west of France, along the Atlantic Ocean, but also in Spain. Biaudos is at the border between the French Basque Country and the Landes department in Gascony.
