South of France and Provence Driving Tour

When it comes to sunshine destinations, they don’t come more exclusive than the Cote D`Azur.  Our South of France & Luberon Valley short tour takes in the most beautiful regions of this amazing part of France. This 3-night trip starts in the glitzy seaside resort of Cannes and includes 2 full days of driving in the car.  From here, you will head away from the coast into the deserted National Park Verdon, along sweeping gorges and crossing small mountain passes.  You will stop by at several charming villages dating back to Medieval times, before heading into one of the most scenic areas of France, the Luberon Valley.  Spend an evening in the heart of the sweeping hills and vineyards of Southern Provence, before heading back down to the coast, on what is probably the greatest driving road in France, Route Napoleon.

Spend your final evening in Cannes, taking in the small ports, fine food, and shopping, as well of course as taking a stroll along the famous Croisette, the most famous seaside promenade in Europe.  If you prefer to finish the tour in Monto Carlo, rather than Cannes, this is also possible.  You would make the final night staying at the Fairmont Monte Carlo.  For this option, please add  250EUR on all packages, due to the slightly higher hotel rates, and the drive in the car which is 50KM longer.

NOTE: This holiday can now be held for 250EUR - see our start your engines plan for details
