Secrets of the Mediterranean

EuropeDriving Holidays along the Mediterranean Sea; visit past meccas like Portofino, Menton, Port Grimaud or Murica off the beaten track but abounds with history:-

Portofino; in the past it was a port of call to Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor, Clark Gable, and Ava Gardner. Hotel Splendido still providing local cuisine. One of the best seaside towns on the planet due to its premiere location and unbelievable beauty and worthy of a visit.

Grimaud; retains the same canals and islands of its Italian inspiration, but with a decidedly more exotic atmosphere. Visit Relaise & Chateau Hotel, relic of the 1950s glitz that dominated the area on the way to St. Tropez. A quintessential stopover for those who have docked their yachts in Port Grimaud.

Cassis; retaining the purity of southern France without the glitz and glamour of neighbouring Nice, Cannes and St. Tropez. Since the early 1950s it has become something of a hideaway for wealthy Europeans. Cassis is also home to some good white wine and rose, the town’s cosmopolitan air has made Cassis a quiet but enjoyable Mediterranean beach town. The Michelin-star rated La Villa Madie on the cliffs of Cassis is the type of restaurant designed to cater to the cabals of wealthy aristocrats and actors that call Cassis home.

From the Isle of Skye to the Amalfi Coast, from sandy beaches to where raw rock meets the ocean, EuropeDriving will drive you through country roads in style and comfort to your destination.

Enjoying the tranquillity of far off beaches arriving and staying in a remote cabin, or the activities of Nice, Cannes and Antibes with their boats, shops, cafes’ and architecture, where staying in luxury hotels before eagerly exploring the next cove. The Mediterranean, Atlantic coast or the Baltic, Black or North Sea’s all offer that different touch. Sitting high up in Amalfi watching the aqua coloured seas spreading across to Salerno or resting peacefully in Kirkcudbright on the rolling hills of the Lowlands of Scotland where somewhat differently we watch the low tide expose horizon like mud flats glistening in the sun, vastly different but both as beautiful.  Your Europe tour will cater for your points of interest.

Suggestions include the Italian Riviera with its deck chair beaches, Portafino where the catwalk plays an important part, Sanremo where cocktails are the shout of the day, Burnham Market where you see the oyster shelling on the beach, Split for the rugged coast and beauty, St Tropez has its artist sitting on the breakwaters and Carry le Rouet is just fine for an evening sundowner, these are but a few holiday destinations you can be driven to on our singles holidays or small group trips.
