Classic Car tour through Provence

Provence – Lavender, wild horses and French Gothic

The hinterland of the Côte d’Azur towards the Rhône basin, the Luberon wine region and the limestone rocks of the Alpilles, medieval Avignon and roman Arles: all this seems created on purpose for an exciting classic car tour. Add to this mighty Premonstratensian and Cistercian Abbeys in the midst of oak forests or blooming lavender fields, impressive military roads dating back to Napoleon and carved into the rock, the Camargue wild horses and the Verdon canyon. This is pure Provence, or France at its best!

    Mercedes-Benz SL tour – France at it`s best

    Day 1  Maussane-les-Alpilles

    You will get the chance to meet your fellow travelers at our introductory get-together in the hotel. Outside in the warm sun, the shimmering chrome classics sparkle and await for you. As an introduction to the tour, you can get accustomed to the Roadbook while driving on winding country roads, through pine forests, and along white sandstone formations. The goal of this drive is the areas around the picturesque Salon de Provence. The small and cozy village of Pélissanne is one of the most beautiful villages in Provence and is perfect for our first coffee stop in Provence.

    Day 2  Avignon and Gordes

    Pure Provence is the theme today on an itinerary which seems taken off a photo book. Crossing the Alpilles past the Abbey of Saint-Michel de Frigolet, we reach the Rhône and head north towards Avignon. Few medieval towns have reached modern age similarly well conserved with a surrounding intact wall, an amazing legacy of buildings and history. Avignon is known for hosting the Pope during the great Western Schism of 1309 to 1423, and we will explore the town at the hand of a knowledgeable guide. After lunch, the route leads north-east into high Provence with its small canyons, hills and blossoming lavender fields. Tiny little villages on the way offer plenty of coffee stop and shopping opportunities, before arriving at the village of Gordes. The latter is perched up on a rock overlooking the Luberon almost like a watchman, a perfect scenery.

    Day 3  Arles and Camargue

    Today’s drive is much about nature and the perfume of the land rather than the thrill of speed. The delta of the river Rhône marks the extension of the Camargue marsh land, which has long been a nature reserve for flamingos, provencal bulls and most famous, the white Camargue horses. Did you know that they are the only horse breed able to graze under water? You will be able to watch them closely before visiting Arles and its majestic arena and some more Roman remains during your guided walk through town.

    Day 4   Luberon

    Departure day’s highlight will be the extensive lavender fields southeast of Gordes and the itinerary ‘castles of the Luberon’ including Château de Lourmarin. Today, you will be crossing the notorious Durance river several times, which in the old days has been referred to as one of the three scourges of Provence (the other two being the Mistral and the Aix-en-Provence parliament). You will return the cars back at the hotel during early afternoon, just in time for your airport transfer.
