British Lions coach Sir Clive Woodward will spend a week with the French team at their training camp in Marcoussis prior to Les Bleus' Test match against New Zealand on November 27.
The Stade de France clash with the All Blacks will be France's last in a series of three beginning with Australia on Saturday and Argentina on November 20.
"Clive will be with us from the Monday to the Friday in Marcoussis," said manager Jo Maso at the team's gathering at Orly airport in the south of Paris.
"He is interested in watching us prepare for a match against New Zealand because he will face them next year with the British Lions.
"And to be honest, we are also very interested in having contact with him."
Woodward coached England to a semi-final victory over France at the Rugby World Cup.
