Oh, la douce France. We don’t know what it is, exactly, but France certainly breathes a certain feeling of nostalgia, a certain air of romance. Maybe it’s the language, maybe it’s their way of living, maybe it’s just got something to do with their oh-so-delicious food. Whatever it may be, there’s not a single soul in the world who’s not at least a little bit curious about visiting the country and seeing what all the fuss is about. From the Louvre in Paris to the Alps in the East, we’d like to see it all.
And even though seeing it all is almost impossible when it comes to France, a road trip through the country is certainly a good idea for your next holiday. We’d suggest to keep things realistic and choose a particular area you’d like to visit as, well, you can’t visit the entire country unless you’ve got A lot of time and you’re ready to spend the majority of that time on the road. But even when you choose just one particular region, you won’t be disappointed. And even if things get a little difficult, you can always enjoy that magnificent, stinking French cheese and a bottle of wine – not before you’re getting behind the wheel, though.
Le Grand Tour
Yet, what if you’re not a fan of driving and still want to see a big chunk of France at once? Well, a very special way of seeing the country without having to get behind the wheel has just been added to the list. Private company Le Puy du Fou has obtained the right to use the French railway system and that means they’re rolling out an extraordinary 6-day train ride which will show you some of France’s best sights.
The trip has been named Le Grand Tour and spans over 6 days, 5 nights and 4.000 kilometers. The Belle Epoque train will get you to the Lac d’Annecy, the Châteaux de la Loire, the Palais des Papes d’Avignon, the Bassin d’Arcachon and a lot more.
With fifteen luxury cabins, to gastronomic restaurants and a bar, your voyage will most certainly be very comfortable. Of course, all that luxury doesn’t come cheap.
Le Grand Tour combines the utmost comfort with exclusive services:
- Cabins from 10 to 30 m²
- One private bathroom per cabin
- Wi-Fi available on board
- A personal steward at your disposal
If you want to embark on the magical train ride, you’ll have to spend at least 4.900 per person. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, we’d call it.
