Freewheeling France – self-guided driving holidays.

Driving holidays for people who want to explore independently with the security of a planned itinerary. This is more than a just a GPS and a car!  We write the daily itineraries based on our knowledge of the region, roads and restaurants. No turning up a country lane that becomes walking track, or arriving at the wrong destination. Just tell us where you want to go, how long you’ve got, your must-see sights, preferred  accommodation and leave the rest to us.

  • Drive yourself  & enjoy the flexibility & freedom of independent travel, with the ease and peace of mind of an escorted tour.
  • Detailed daily route guide with roads maps and town plans showing access & exit roads, where to park, tourist information office….
  •  Character accommodation with ensuite bathrooms – that includes B&Bs, hotels, châteaux hotels and special restaurants with rooms.
  • All breakfasts, and restaurant recommendations for lunch and dinner.
  • Notes and recommendations on places of interest, market days, vineyards, shopping, French customs, etc….
  •  Drive for a few days or several weeks, and our Freewheeling France holidays are often combined with a barge cruise, a rental boat, a language/cooking course, or our walking and cycling holidays.

While all Freewheeling France holidays are fully customised,  some itineraries remain popular year after year:
