Provence & Côte d'Azur

Day 1: Hidden Beauties

It won't be just the classic cars that you will be cruising in for the next four days that are legendary. Start your journey at the Relais & Châteaux Hotel "Le Mas De Pierre" in the rolling hills of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, which has already enchanted famous artists such as Chagall. Get in the mood for your journey with lunch together with a view of the azure blue sea. The magnificent natural spectacles will soon take your breath away when you bring your open roadster up to speed along idyllic roads. From the wild and romantic gorges of the Loup you finally reach Gourdon, one of the most beautiful villages in all of France. Like an eagle's nest, it sits enthroned on a ledge with a wonderful view of the Côte d'Azur.

Day 2: Chic hotspots in a world of the jet set

Antibes, Nice, Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat: a unique show run along the jet set coast of the rich and famous, and you are right in the middle of it all. Take your roadster over the famous Croisette in the direction of Antibes to the Promenade des Anglais in Nice before you reach the Grande Corniche. The beautiful panoramic road has been world famous since the classic film "Above the Roofs of Nice" with Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. Accompanied by a spectacular view, you will take the winding route downhill to the center of the medieval Èze-Village with its artisans, the small cobbled streets and the castle ruins from the 12th century. The perfect location for a lunch stop before heading back to the azure blue sea, with its Art Nouveau villas and the imposing millionaire estate at Cap Ferrat. The "Villa Ephrussi" from the Belle Epoque is one of the most beautiful architectural monuments on the Côte d’Azur with magnificent gardens and water features.

Day 3: The Verdon Gorge

Getting up early is rewarded: the most varied stage for this tour lies ahead of you. On the historic "Route Napoléon", the passage winds turn by turn higher into the French Maritime Alps, in which the Verdon river has dug deep gorges. Accompanied by blooming gorse and agaves, the gaze falls again and again on the shimmering Mediterranean Sea in the distance. The six-cylinder are in their element here when the serpentines lead through the limestone-sandstone massif and one of the most famous regions of Provence shows itself at its best. The spectacular road through the Gorges du Verdon, the "Grand Canyon" of France, leads at dizzying heights along the turquoise river to the imposing Lac de Sainte-Croix with a unique view.

Day 4: The scent of Grasse

The scent of mimosa, roses, lavender and jasmine hovers over the Provencal town of Grasse - a bewitching mixture that entices a thousand "noses" from around the world, 50 of them in Grasse alone, create their scents. And so the fourth stage is under the motto “It's not the thrill of speed that counts, but the scent of the landscape”. This trip ends in the afternoon with a transfer to Nice Airport.

Côte d’Azur

Probably the most popular stretch of coast in France is widely known as a meeting point for the rich and famous. In addition to the glamorous coastal cities of Monaco, Nice and Cannes, this area has a lot more to offer: medieval villages that blend into the beautiful landscape along the coastal roads and invite you to linger and relax; vibrant life on the coast and the contemplative and quiet hinterland; Mediterranean cuisine that knows how to combine products from the sea with those from the land.

Monaco

With an area of ​​just 1.97 km², the city-state of Monaco is the second smallest state in the world after the Vatican. Known as a tax haven, Monaco is the main residence of a good 30,000 people, mostly multimillion-dollar high earners and top athletes. Monaco achieved worldwide fame because of the legendary casino in the Monte Carlo district, the annual Formula 1 race and of course the royal family. In the 19th century Monaco filled its city coffers with the income from the casino, today it is mainly tourism and congresses. In 1955 the American actress Grace Kelly, dubbed the “most beautiful woman in the world” by the press, met Prince Rainier III of Monaco during the Cannes Film Festival. She married him on April 19, 1956 with a wedding, dubbed the "Wedding of the Century", actress Grace Kelly became Princess Gracia Patricia. However, on September 14, 1982 the princess had an accident, which took a lot of glamor and attention from the princely family.

Nice

With almost 400,000 inhabitants, Nice is the largest city in the region; it was founded in 500 BC. Founded by the Greeks and in only 150 BC, it was settled by the Romans. The Roman amphitheater still bears witness to this today. It was not until 1860 that Nice was finally a part of France. Nice became the largest tourist metropolis and an important economic center in southern Europe. Nevertheless, there is also an old port and lively hustle and bustle in narrow old town streets.

Cannes

Every year in May, the Cannes Film Festival takes place and transforms the city into a promenade. With this rendezvous of stars and starlets, which has been taking place since 1945, the city experienced its rise to become a cosmopolitan city and is now a popular contact point for holidaymakers.

Grasse

The perfume capital, which is located in the hinterland of the Côte d ’Azur about 20 km from the coast, still houses around 30 perfume factories, and has been world-famous since the film adaptation of Patrick Süskind's bestseller“ Perfume ”. The city, first mentioned in 1040, was already producing perfume in the Middle Ages. Perfumers have specialized in the extraction of flower juice, especially orange blossom and jasmine, since the 17th century. The flowers are now mostly imported, so that the sight of glowing flower plantations has become a rare sight today. Time seems to have stood still in Grasse. The classic perfume “Chanel No. 5 “was created in Grasse in the 1920s and is still available today.
Mediterranean cuisine, when visiting Grasse, it is not just the wonderful perfume essences that fill your nose. “Le Fougassette” is a wonderful orange-flavored yeast cake that is mainly served in this area. Provencal cuisine itself is kept simple and mainly uses regional products. It is characterized by many aromatic herbs, tomatoes, sweet peppers, aubergines and the generous use of garlic and olive oil. Typical dishes not to be missed are bouillabaisse, which is eaten with spicy garlic mayonnaise, soup de Poisson, daube provençale (a stew with beef goulash) and aioli. The best way to indulge in an affinity for sweets is to enjoy white nougat from Montélimar, candied fruit from Apt or Calisson d’Aix (an almond confectionery with candied melons and oranges).

8 reviews for Provence & Côte d'Azur: Lavendel und Jetset

  1. P. Holland

    Vielen Dank für die super Betreuung und das Rundumsorglospaket.
    Auf ein Wiedersehen. 🙂 🙂

  2. J. P. Hussey

    Great experience! Second day drive was too long.

  3. Herbert G., Eisenach

    Kleine Verbesserung am Roadbook: Hervorheben von wichtigen Abzweigungen. Sehr guter Service bezüglich der Fahrzeuge: Unterweisung, Freundlichkeit und Kompetenz.

  4. Ulrich R., Reken

    Die Reisen sind sehr gut organisiert. Einziges Manko: Es fehlte ein Starthilfekabel.

  5. Christoph Lemm

    Die Reise die ich vergangenen Herbst erleben durfte hat mich zutiefst beeindruckt. Neben der wirklich perfekten Organisation und Auswahl des Hotels, haben mich persönlich insbesondere die Fahrzeuge beeindruckt.
    Was ich besonders hervorheben möchte und so in noch keiner Veranstaltung erlebt habe, ist die Atmosphäre. Einerseits ist alles organisiert und man braucht sich um nichts kümmern, andererseits hat man die Freiheit selbst zu bestimmen, wann und ob man eine Pause machen möchte. Dadurch ist
    eine sehr angenehme und stressfreie Atmosphäre auf der gesamten Veranstaltung. Ich sag Danke für dieses tolle Erlebnis und für mich steht fest, das muss ich unbedingt wiederholen!
    Christoph Lemm

  6. Christian Goldbach

    Ich hatte das große Glück, im Oktober 2016 an Eurer Reise durch die Provence teilzunehmen und es war einfach unvergesslich. Die geführten Strecken waren traumhaft ausgewählt. Die kleinen Ortschaften luden zum Kaffeetrinken ein. Es war einfach alles fantastisch vorbereitet. Ihr, als Team, wart hoch motiviert, sehr gut vorbereitet und ausgebildet. Mit Sicherheit wird das für mich nicht die letzte Reise mit Euch gewesen sein.
    Christian Goldbach

  7. C. Bettendorf

    Tolles Team. Jedem zu empfehlen der Lust auf Schöne alte Autos und Traum Straßen hat

  8. Tanja

    Die Erfahrung war wunderbar. Wir haben Orte in süd Frankreich gesehen, die wir wahrscheinlich sonst nicht sehen würden und auf so eine wunderbare Art und Weisse. Mit solchen tollen Autos unterwegs zu sein ist ein luxus pur. Organisation der Reise war fehlerlos. Zu empfehlen!
