Our Route Napoleon & Riviera supercar driving experience is a shorter driving holiday, where you’ll get to spend 2 days behind the wheel of your dream supecar, in which time you’ll explore some of the most stunning driving roads, hilltop villages, gastronomic restaurants and exclusive hotels in the South of France. You’ll experience the world-famous Route Napoleon, one of the greatest drives in Europe, and follow dramatic rockside balcony roads into the Provencal countryside, with picture postcard backdrops everywhere you drive.
On the day of your arrival you will arrive in Èze, and check in to the splendid 5* Château de lá Chevre d’Or, where you’ll be able to spend a day at leisure enjoying the most breathtaking panoramic view of the Côte d’Azur from the terrace and the pool. The next morning after a sumptuous breakfast with a view, the supercar of your choice will be delivered to your hotel. We have planned a fantastic itinerary where you during the course of 2 days get the opportunity to test your machine on fast roads up in the mountains, pause in the most fabulous places for a gourmet lunch, and unwind in some of the most luxurious hotels in Europe with Michelin starred restaurants.
Our aim has been to design a route that takes in as much as possible of the beautiful scenery and roads, while still keeping the driving times reasonable – you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the hotel facilities between each drives and indulge in mouthwatering tasting menus, revitalise in the spas, and sample locally produced Provencal wines in a famous vineyard. After you’ve conquered the Route Napoleon you’ll arrive at the Château de Berne, a winery and luxury hotel surrounded by vine ranks and olive groves on a large private estate. Drop in to the vineyard for a tour of the winery followed by a wine tasting, or laze by the indoor or outdoor pool with a cocktail in your hand.
After a good night’s sleep, and a relaxed morning at the hotel, it’s time to hit the road again. Your second and final leg of your driving adventure takes you into the Verdon National Park, on wide open tarmac winding by the shores of lakes, and up on mountain roads carved out of the cliffside with dramatic views over the Verdon Gorge. Follow spectacular roads back towards the coastline, and finish your supercar adventure with a loud blast through the F1 tunnel in Monaco, in the tyre tracks of legendary racing drivers. Your final hotel stop is situated in the heart of Monte Carlo on the Casino Square – the historic Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo is the perfect place to be seen at with a head-turner, and as you pull up in front of the hotel entrance you’ll find that all eyes are on you – like a rockstar…
Èze is a charming medieval hilltop village, perched high on a cliff like an eagle’s nest, with unrivalled views to the littoral and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the distance. In this authentic Provencal paradise, with its cobblestone alleys and historic houses, you can visit the Exotic Garden of Eze, or stroll through the Old Town with its small boutiques. For those who want to explore the surroundings we recommend a trip down to the beach at Eze Bord de Mer, where you can lunch to the sound of lapping waves, or in 15 minutes you’re in Monaco or Beaulieu-sur-Mer where you´ll find luxury shopping, world-class restaurants, and famous places to visit.
