Overview
Glasses glinting with bubbles and rich red wines. Windows that open out on soaring mountains, charming villages and fragrant fields of flowers. Join us on a voyage through quintessential France.

Day 1 - Paris - Reims - Troyes
From Paris, we'll begin our journey to Troyes. En route, we'll be treated to a delicious champagne tasting in Épernay, as well as a visit to the impressive Reims Cathedral. Here, treasured reminders of the city's medieval heritage stand beside elegant buildings. In the evening we'll dine together in Troyes, our home for the next two nights. Meals - Dinner

Day 2 - Troyes - Vaux Castle - Troyes
On the agenda today: a walking tour of Troyes, where we'll take the opportunity to visit a local market. Afterwards, we'll visit the grand Château de Vaux. Built in the 1700s for the Aubeterre family, the Château is now undergoing a process of renovation in order to preserve its majestic beauty. Meals - Breakfast

Day 3 - Troyes - Beaune
Day three of the trip will see us sample more world-class local produce when we swap fizz for the dry white wines of Chablis at a wine tasting. Then, afternoon will bring us to Beaune, where you'll have the evening free to explore this attractive city known for its Gothic architecture. Meals - Breakfast & Dinner

Day 4 - Beaune
Today we'll spend some more time in the beating heart of the Burgundy wine region with a visit to the Hospices de Beaune. Originally founded as a hospital for the poor by the chancellor of Burgundy back in 1443, the unique building is now a museum and an exceptional example of fifteenth-century French architecture. Afterwards, you'll be free to explore Beaune at your own pace. Meals - Breakfast

Day 5 - Beaune - Savoie
On day five, we'll leave Beaune behind and set our sights on Savoie – but en route, we'll make a stop at Château de la Greffière. Famous for its vineyards, the property also has a winery and a museum on-site. Meals - Breakfast & Lunch

Day 6 - Savoie - Annecy - Savoie
We'll check off a highlight of the tour on day six – the postcard-perfect alpine town of Annecy. Annecy is a must-visit while passing through southeastern France and is known for its Old Town, canals that rival those of Venice, candy-coloured houses and cobbled streets. Also on the cards today will be a visit to a traditional fromagerie.

Day 7 - Savoie - Vercors
We'll get the chance to sample more tasty local produce today when we explore a Chartreuse cellar and distillery. The famous French liqueur has been produced by Carthusian Monks since 1737 and is infused with an array of plants, herbs and flowers. Be sure to leave enough room in your suitcase to bring some home with you! This afternoon, our road will take us through the region of Vercors. Meals - Breakfast

Day 8 - Vercors - Sisteron - Forcalquier
Our road will turn towards Provence today. Alpine slopes will give way to rugged hills and wildflower meadows when we travel to Sisteron, stopping at the Sisteron Citadel along the way. Later, we'll reach Forcalquier where we'll settle in for a farewell dinner and final overnight stay. Meals - Breakfast & Dinner

Day 9 - Forcalquier - Nice
Our closing day will take us deeper into exquisite Provençal countryside and through Entrevaux, a medieval town perched among green slopes and olive tree-covered hills. Then, we'll finish our tour in Nice – the elite resort and shining capital of the French Riviera. There's no better place to end our journey than among the golden beaches and clear waters of the Côte d'Azur. Meals - Breakfast
