The French Connection 2016
September 13 to 18, 2016
Join us for six days and five nights on a fun drive through France in our amazing 2CVs. Starting on the French Riviera near Monte Carlo we drive the D-roads, winding through the byways of France on a journey of discovery all the way to Normandy.
Our fabulous route takes us from Beaulieu-sur-Mer to Chorges in the centre of Provence, Nantua, famous for its leather and shoemaking, Sancerre, one of the finest wine regions in France, Chartres, well known for its history and Cathedral and finally Caen in Normandy – built by William the Conqueror- before taking the ferry to Portsmouth,
The first French Connection, a fabulous drive from the fabled Cote d’Azur on the Mediterranean to Northern France, was such a success in 2015 that we are running it again in September 2016.
Starting at Beaulieu-sur-Mer, just outside Monte Carlo, we. journey through the Department of Provence along some iconic stages from the classic Monte Carlo Rally. The romance of the event is evoked in our selection of routes and passes through the mountains.
At the end of our first day on the road we stay at Chorges where the hotel has fabulous views across Lac de Serre Poncon. From here we head to Nantua across amazing mountain passes and picturesque French towns.
Leaving Nantua we drive to Sancerre where the Hotel Panoramic features fabulous views over the surrounding farmland. Here, in the centre of the small Sancerre DoC, we taste their great wines with food to match.
With the 2CV’s enjoying the French D-roads they were designed for, our next stop is the historic town of Chartres, famous for its fantastic cathedral. After Chartres we find the lesser travelled roads to Caen before boarding the ferry for Portsmouth and our final destination near Alton, Hampshire.
