About France Montgolfieres
The sun is shining and you would like to take advantage... why not go for a unique experience : a hot air balloon flight. Choose one of our take off sites : - Chenonceaux in the Loire Valley - Fontainebleau in Ile de France - Vézelay or Beaune in Burgundy - Forcalquier in Provence - Bourg Madame in the Pyrénées Once your flight is booked, join us at the meeting point. You will have the opportunity to help inflating the balloon, and once in the basket just relax and enjoy the view. After landing you will get to share your impressions with the team during the traditional aeronaut's toast. You will need to plan about three hours for the hole activity including an hour for the flight.
