In 2019 Le Hameau takes you on three different vintage car rides, on your way to discover the splendid landscapes of Provence. The first will take place on march 31, with a route passing by river Rhône, its ancient ruins and wineries.
A fantasy tour
The season will take off on a route of contrasts. After the meeting at 8:30 sharp for coffee and briefing, the tour will start gently at 9, with a historic destination: the Roman aqueduct famously known as “Pont du Gard”. No rush though: the emphasis is on spending a pleasant moment. The motorcade will kick off towards the Crau lowland and its typical landscapes, with wild bulls, fluffy sheep and nonchalant pink flamingos. You will cross the river Rhône through the Barcarin ferry, a fun and memorable experience. Then the convoy will head to the 2000 years old Pont du Gard through the adorable Camargue villages of Salin de Giraud, Saint Gilles and Remoulins. Next stop is Chateauneuf du Pape for a gourmet picnic prepared by master chef Christohe Chiavola. Also a perfect opportunity to load your trunk with some wonderful Côte du Rhône wines… Adventure continues through the dramatically jagged shapes of “Dentelles de Montmirail”, a small chain of mountains in Vaucluse, just south of village of Vaisons la Romaine. The way back to the Hameau will go through the small town of L’isle sur la Sorgue, famous for its many antique shops.
An open route
In order to enjoy to the fullest this beautiful outing, le Hameau offers an all-inclusive package including a night and a dinner at the hotel, and the rent of one of its incredible fleet of vintage convertibles. Amongst them: Alpha Romeo Spider 2000, Ford Mustang, MGA… and even a 2CV. If you are the happy owner of a collectible car and won’t be staying at le Hameau, you will be charged 140€ for travel expenses, comprising a road book and gastro-picnic. But why not treat yourself at La Cantine du Hameau, with a gourmet tasting of Provence? The ideal conclusion after a day of discovering its cultural and natural beauties.
