Bienvenue! Welcome to Bespoke France, the French travel specialists

Bespoke means made to order and since 1991 Robert Buchanan & Barbara Keen have been creating customised holidays to help you experience the best of France.

Robert and Barbara are believers in ‘slow travel' – discovering small pockets of France and immersing yourself in a region and its culture - and delight in sharing their experiences and extensive knowledge of France gathered over 40 years.   

We specialise in holidays in France (plus some barge cruises and rental boats in other parts of Europe) and are independent owner-operators, so are not tied to any agency and can objectively advise on how to achieve your best holiday in France. 

Our holidays fall into three main categories boating, walking and cycling, but we often combine these elements with additional accommodation, trains, cars, local guides and give advice on restaurants, market days, culture, vineyards and traditions, to create a complete, stress-free experience. 

Explore our web site and contact us for more information on our all-inclusive barge cruises, self-drive rental boats, fully escorted gourmet walks and our self-guided Backroad Discovery cycling and walking holidays.

We believe in personal service based on our personal experience.
