Self- drive holidays in Alsace from 444 Euros (twin-share).

Alsace stands apart from any other region of France. With its Germanic heritage, half-timbered houses are brightly-painted, heavily decorated with flowers and roof are very steep. Very pretty traditional Alsace villages are found in the midst of vineyards, with the Vosges hills in the background. Renowned for its remarkable and simple itinerary, the Alsace Wine Route invites you to discover the region and its wine producers.

Why choose a self-drive tour rather than car rental?

Renting a car in France is easy. You do not need assistance for that. However, getting suitable accommodation could be a challenge as well as knowing where to go and what to see. Our solution is a self-drive tour where all of this ( accommodation, tour guide and local knowledge) is provided. We can't do much about driving on the right, but we can make you feel more relaxed at the wheel with precise directions to follow, a list of places to visit and pre-booked quality accommodation every night, including where to park. Choosing one of our self-drive tour will allow you to see a lot without worrying or wasting any time. Each night, you will stay at a good hotel we have inspected and carefully selected for you.

Our self-drive wallet contains:

• One or several green Michelin guides (the best!) • Detailed maps of the region (scale 1cm = 1Km) • Iitinerary with distances, time & GPS bearing • A list of restaurants, shops, wine producers • Practical notes on "what to do and see".
