European Driving Holiday in the Cote d’Azur & Provence
When it comes to sunshine destinations, they don’t come more exclusive than the Cote D`Azur.
However, what is often overlooked is the region is also on the doorstep of some of the greatest driving roads in Europe, the Alps Maritimes. These mountains, that run directly down to the Med, offer a combination of breathtaking hilltop villages (many ranked amongst the most scenic in France such as Gourdon, Vence and Moustairs Sainte Marie) with an amazing variety of drives, ranging from the tight and twisty mountain cols, to the sweeping Route Napoleon through Parc Verdon. Combine this with the small villages and vineyards of southern Provence and you have the perfect driving getaway.
This four night break starts in the seaside resort of Cannes, before touring up into the beautiful Alps Maritimes. You will visit Monte Carlo for lunch, then head to the beautiful hill top town of St Paul for your second evening. You then continue through the spectacular Parc Verdon and down to Saint Tropez for an evening. The tour is then completed with a run through the vineyards of Southern Provence, before retruning to Cannes along the scenic coastal routes.
