Where to rent a classic car in Provence?

We've had some bad experiences with poorly maintained cars. There are some very serious service providers dedicated to this activity. We recommend the following professionals for the beauty of their vehicles, their competitive rates and their reliability.

Private tours in classic cars

If renting a car is too expensive for you, you can instead treat yourself to a vintage or classic car outing in Provence. We've tested a number of providers and recommend three Provencal classic car experiences:

  • a dream half-day in a Citroën Traction Avant on the Côte d'Azur. Philippe picks you up at your hotel and takes you on a tour of the region's most beautiful spots at the wheel of this superb car. For two, a family or a group of friends!

  • Discover Provence in a Citroën 2CV. Departure near Avignon and Saint Rémy de Provence for a unique experience at the wheel of the legendary dodoche. Unforgettable memories!

  • For those who want to treat themselves: discover Cannes and the surrounding area on a private tour with a chauffeur/photographer in a beautiful red 3-seater Ferrari California cabriolet! Watch out!
