Based on two sharing a car and a room.

Day One

We kick off the Grand Tour from Sandbanks before heading up the A3 and through the Hindhead tunnel before a little stop in the central courtyard of Leeds Castle.

Then a short hop into France, via the Channel Tunnel, brings us to our first stop, the lavish 4-star hotel Hôtel La Chartreuse du Val Saint Esprit.

Day Two

Starting on the sweeping and quiet Autoroutes of Northern France, we head for Épernay, the birth place of Moët & Chandon and our stop for the night, the beautiful Le Château de Rilly.

Before we get there, a short detour is in order for some more interesting roads on the way to the rebuilt 14th century Château de Pierrefonds.

Day Three

A wonderful breakfast sets us up for the day before heading for the city of Dijon some 300km to the South. The Orient Forest and it's Great Lakes are the treat of the day with winding forest roads leading to fast Autoroutes and twisting hillside roads.

Day Four

Heading from Dijon just South of Lyon, we soak up some of the best places that the Burgundy wine region of France has to offer. All before our nightly stop at the 4-star Domaine de Clairefontaine and Philippe Girardon's fantastic gourmet restaurant.

Day Five

Our first glimpse of the Alps with it's winding mountain passes and awe-inspiring views. Several great roads are highlighted by the start of the famous Route Napoléon - this day promises the opportunity to really drive your supercar.

Day Six

Getting back on the road, we take some of the best roads the Alps have to offer on our way to the coast. The stunning Verdon Gorge being one of them with its sapphire blue waters visible from the balcony roads that surround it.

Day Seven

A short, relaxed drive along the coast road from Cannes to Monaco takes just a couple of hours, leaving plenty of time to explore Monaco for the afternoon. All that's left is the final night dinner and party... maybe even a flutter at the famous casino.

Day Eight

(Optional)

With memories of the final night party on our minds and a sad heart, it's time to head for home. If you're driving back with us, we'll make sure your last night is just a special, with a stop off at the 5-star La Côte Saint Jacques Hotel & Spa.

The Route

Driving on roads you’ve only ever dreamed of before. From never-ending poplar-lined straights to flowing curves that weave around some of France’s most breath-taking mountains.

Each day is about three to six hours of driving, nothing too strenuous, with the occasional stop at picturesque towns and interesting attractions to soak up the local culture and have even more fun.
