France Self-Drive Holidays

France self-drive holidays

In response to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on travel, and to allow our wine loving customers to continue to enjoy the unforgettable experiences which we have always taken so much pride in arranging, we are very excited to introduce a brand new range of France self-drive holidays from the UK, which encompass everything from whistle-stop two night breaks to long and leisurely, multi-region holidays. Whilst you will be driving to France in your own vehicle, we will of course arrange private transport to all of your wine tours, allowing you to fully indulge in the tastings.

For your maximum safety and comfort, the key characteristics of our France self-drive holidays include:

  • Eurotunnel crossings from the UK, allowing you to travel to France safely in your own vehicle.
  • Accommodation in rural, boutique hotels, away from busy towns and cities. Each of our partner hotels will be operating to very strict guidelines to ensure that your stay is as safe as possible. For example, offering à la carte breakfasts as opposed to buffets, and the option to take breakfast in your room if preferred.
  • Transport to your wine tours in a private vehicle with an English-speaking driver/guide. Your guide will transport you in a spacious eight-seater vehicle, for example a Mercedes Viano, and will adhere to strict hygiene and safety regulations.
  • Private tours at the wineries, where your on-site guide will respect social distancing rules throughout the visit and serve your tastings safely and hygienically.
  • Safe and socially-distanced meals, both at lunchtime on the tours and in the evenings. Lunches on the tours will often be served in the form of al fresco picnics or in private dining rooms during the cooler months. Dinners will often be arranged on-site at your hotel or alternatively, at a nearby Grape Escapes partner restaurant, who will be following the necessary safety procedures to the letter.
