French doors are limited in size , probably be easier with a multi panel sliding glass door that can be made to fit the opening.

First and most important issue your going to run into is water getting in under the wall.
Post a picture of what you have now for some better suggestions on how to do this.
It's not going to be as simple as building a wall and sticking the door in a hole to do it right.
