19th Sept - the French Savoire Alps
Drive one will take the group south from Geneva, and into the heart of the French Saviore Alps - in the summer time, this stunning region of the Alps is absolutely deserted, so the perfect playground for any supercar - we make our way around the tranquil Lac de Roseland, where you can feel completely shut off from all civilisation, before heading into the Vanoise National Park, home to the ski resorts of Tignes and Val d'Isere - here we will make our overnight and a privatised luxury chalet, surrounded by the Alps.
5hrs driving, 280km, plus stops
Overnight: Luxury Chalet in the Tignes / Val d'isre area – own bedroom / private bathroom
20th Sept - The Northern French Alps to Val d'Isere
Drive two starts with a run across one of the longest, and indeed breath-taking mountain passes in Europe, Col de l'Iseran - topping out at nearly 2800M, this pass is in the Top 5 highest paved roads in Europe, and the views from the summit are nothing short of spectacular. We continue our journey south through the Vaboise Park, before making a diversion across the border into Italy, and the ski resort of Sestriere for lunch. Lunch over, we head back into France, and the Parc du Quyras, heading up to the small alpine village of Saint Veran - a delightful village set at the end of a small valley, surrounded by ski fields.
5 hours driving, 280km, plus stops
Overnight: 4 Star Superior Alta Peyra Hotel – twin rooms
21st Sept - The Alps Maritimes to Monte Carlo
Our final drive will take us onto what we consider to be the Greatest Drive Road in the whole of Europe, Col de la Bonnette. This road, which rises to 2800M is simply a drivers paradise, deserted, great tarmac, amazing views forward all the way to the summit - after the 90minute drive to the top, this will be the high point of the entire tour, literally and metaphorically. From here, the journey continues south-south, along sweeping valleys, crossing small mountain passes, before heading into Monaco, where we will be based for our final evening.
That night the group will head out into the Principality to enjoy the local hospitality, and nightlife.
5 hours driving, 260KM, plus stops
