On our CarVia Top Gear Special Tour you can have it all. We provide your luxury rental car, select the best driving roads around the South of France and also book your hotels. Welcome to an unforgettable sports car tour around the Gorges du Verdon. The gorge became well-known through the TV series Top Gear when Jeremy Clarkson in a car competed again Leo Houlding, one of the best climbers in the world, to reach the top first. Starting (and end) point of this trip is the beautiful french City Nice, where you spend the night(s) before your trip at our partner hotel.

In the morning of your first day, we will deliver your appropriate car for the Top Gear Special driving tour. Choose among many different models from Porsche, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin, Range Rover & Co. Equipped with the right sports car, you can hunt curves on the Route des Gorges, Route des Crêtes and Route de la Corniche Sublime in the next days. On the first stage you will pass Antibes, Cannes, Frejus and Draguignan. When following our route, you will already drive the first hairpins and fast corners in this area in order to warm up (on DN7). Then you head into the mountains around the Gorges du Verdon. Take bend after bend, hear the sound of your car roaring and enjoy full driving pleasure

Stop at the gorge and admire the astonishing views from above. Using the tips in our comprehensive road book, you can then have your first lunch break and recharge your batteries. After all, instead of going the direct way to Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, you will take the detour on the Route des Crêtes. Here you can feel the dynamics of your and experience real driving fun. No matter if you take our Porsche 911, 718 Boxster/Cayman, BMW i8, M4, Audi R8 – it will be joyful either way! After some hours behind the steering wheel of your luxury car you definitely look forward to arriving in the beautiful city of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Spend the night at our partner hotel and enjoy French cuisine in the evening. Use your time outside of the car with our recommendations for activities in and around the village. It is all prepared for you!

DAY 2:
(ROUTE NAPOLÉON), MOUSTIERS-SAINTE-MARIE -> GRASSE

Start the engine of your supercar and leave for the next stage of your Top Gear Special driving tour. The first stop today is the Lac de Sainte-Croix. This lake was artificially created as a reservoir for a dam. Nevertheless, it surprises with turquoise water and attracts many people that swim, surf or even use sailboats there. Enjoy the landscape and get back to your sports car to conquer the next curvy roads waiting ahead. Via the village of Castellane you will approach the famous Route Napoléon. This street leads all the way from Grenoble down to Cannes and was built almost 100 years ago (D4085 and D6085). It fascinates with long, beautifully shaped bends that are a pleasure to drive. And it will be fun in a sports car, luxury limousine or even SUV alike.

After all, there are plenty of options in our rental car fleet, soon even futuristic electric cars such as the Porsche Taycan. Many great memories on this driving tour are guaranteed. In the afternoon, you will enter the city of Grasse. Probably best known for its perfumes, promoted by famous books and movies, Grasse is the “Balcony of the Mediterranean”. This name comes from the winding alleys and the many great views of the village you can have. Today you can check in at your luxury hotel and enjoy superb service and a beautiful accommodation. Your luxury car can be safely parked in the garage. Discover Grasse and visit the perfume museum or the manufacturers. Stroll around and make your own experiences before getting your well-deserved rest at night.

DAY 3:
(Col de Turini), Grasse -> Nice

Wake up, savor a healthy breakfast and approach your supercar once again. Turn the key around and go on with your exceptional driving tour. On the third day, one of the big highlights of the trip is awaiting you. The Col de Turini was also featured on Top Gear when the crew was searching for the world’s greatest driving roads. This mountain pass road connecting Turin in Italy with Nice in France is a hairpin bend heaven. On the Col de Turini you can feel like a rally driver conquering the Alp mountains with a proper sports car. On the way to get there you already have scenic roads along beautiful French villages such as Vence. But now, get into the right position and enjoy the last stretch of your tour to the fullest. Once you arrive back in Nice, our staff will personally welcome you and your luxury rental car.
