Road Trip in France, vintage travel France

Discover a way of life rich in gastronomy and culture

Explore the beautiful French countryside in a mythical vintage vehicle

France is considered by many to be the epitome of beautiful, romantic travel destinations. Now, you can travel back in time as you travel the countryside! On your driving holiday France, you can cruise the gorgeous coastal roads of Cote d’Azur, or the lavender fields of Provence, in your Citroen 2CV or VW Coccinelle. Perhaps you’d rather picnic, camp, or simply enjoy the drive through southern France in a VW Combi. If those don’t suit your taste, then craft a unique France road trip anywhere in the country with other mythical vehicles, such as vintage cars or motorbikes! You can travel freely and spontaneously while enjoying the sea, beaches, and mountains. Fully immerse yourself in the charm and natural beauty of the lands you explore, from quaint villages to small seaside towns. Pop into the local markets for fresh produce, wines, and cheeses to enjoy later during romantic picnics along your route. With your VW Combi, you’re free to spend the night wherever your heart desires - on the beach, in a wonderful rolling field, or amid the solitude of the forest. Should you prefer a vintage motorbike, 2CV, or Coccinelle, you can relax at night in various charming guest houses, complete with delicious examples of local cuisine.

More about driving holiday France

Other Need-to-Know Information for Your France Road Trip

Most people immediately think of Paris when they think of a holiday in France, but there is much, much more to see, do, and explore! To name a few, Normandy in the north offers rugged, often rainy, but still quite beautiful, coastline, and unique cuisine based on the local seafood, apples, and dairy products. To the southwest, the city of Bordeaux, and its surrounding countryside are renowned for the local wines. While certainly not the only place for wine in France, it is the second largest in the world, with dozens of vineyards. Perhaps, the warm, sunny beaches of the French Riviera and the Mediterranean coastline are more your taste. All of these places, along with plenty others in the country, offer great opportunities for vintage travel France! Once you determine the location and the duration of your holiday, decide on the mythical vehicle which best suits your tastes and head out for an adventure.


Be aware – the terrain and climate vary significantly throughout the country, so pack accordingly for your destination. Much of the country experiences temperate winters and mild to somewhat hot summers. However, along the northern coast you will have cooler, rainier weather year round. Along the Mediterranean coast, the weather will be warmer and sunnier all year. In the high altitude peaks of the Alps and Pyrenees, expect cooler temperatures in the summer, and frigid temperatures with plenty of snow in the winter.


You might arrive by plane or train, but traveling to France by car is indeed an option as well. Citizens of the United States, United Kingdom, and other EU countries are welcome to stay for up to 90 days with only a valid passport, no visa required. Once here, you can travel to wherever your heart desires.
