Discover the Provence and the Riviera
Experience the pleasure of living in Mediterranean cities, their charm, landscapes and architecture. Make the most of your stay with your rental car (visit drivy.co.uk/ for more about hiring a car in France). We recommend you:
- Avignon and its exceptional heritage: Don’t miss the Palace of the Popes, the Avignon Bridge and, of course, the walled city and enjoy the Provencal gastronomy and its wines.
- Aix-en-Provence, one of the most elegant cities in south-eastern France: The Cézanne workshop and the Granet museum (which houses the “Cézanne a Giacometti” collection) are a must-see.
- Marseille offers centuries of history between the sea and the hills and offers activities for everyone. Enjoy visiting its Castle, the old port and the basilica Notre-Dame de la Garde.

This is a country where all your senses will be awakened, especially when it comes to savouring its wonderful cheeses and famous wines. There are a thousand ways to discover it. With our suggestions, you will surely fall even more in love with this country.
Paris, the capital of France, is a city in constant transformation. There is an infinite range of accommodation, restaurants and activities, not to mention leisure, both day and night.
Don’t miss the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Champs Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe, all symbols of Paris. The Louvre and the Centre Pompidou are a must. Relax and enjoy the Montmartre and Opera districts at your own pace.
The French Pyrenees, with some forty ski resorts. Many resorts are not overcrowded, as the French public generally prefers the slopes of the Alps.
The French coastline
Our destination has hundreds of kilometres of coastline to choose from, very different and varied.
In the north, Normandy (with long low beaches and spectacular cliffs that take us to places like Deauvillle, Trouville or the abbey of Mount Saint-Michel) and Brittany with its magnificent beaches, invigorating localities and picturesque fishing ports, popular with swimmers and hikers.
Bordeaux Wine Route
Bordeaux, the capital of one of the most prestigious wines on the planet, distils a charm full of elegance.
Discover some of the 57 Bordeaux appellations of origin. Perhaps a first contact with the Bordeaux Wine Inter-professional Council will help you, where you will discover all the subtlety of Bordeaux wines through a tasting.
In Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, at the foot of the castle, taste the white liqueurs that have made the town famous. Nearby is the Sauternes vineyard. Château Yquem and Château de Malle are two prestigious wines. Saint-Emilion is renowned for the finesse of its wines and the beauty of the locality.
