What you'll do

This experience will give you the chance to escape the modern world and fall into a vintage french atmosphere.

Enjoy a vintage picnic beside my authentic Citroën 2CV, France's most beloved car and feel like a French star. You will have the opportunity to taste a large variety of local french food and wine, also you will have the great advantage to take plenty pictures alongside my elegant car. Soak up the sun, meet the shadows, sit under olive trees and feel like a native french by playing the most loved provençal outdoor game: Pétanque!
Pétanque is a french outdoor sport played in teams, highly appreciated by people looking for non-physical exercise but very captivating and fun for everyone. It can be played at any age and on any surface.

All these at fort of mont-Alban, situated on the hill of Mont Boron that has been a major defensive point of Nice since 1560.
Be prepared to get amazed by the beauty of this special location that not many tourists know about and get ready to visit the fort of mont-Alban with magnificent panoramic view of Villefranche-sur-mer, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat to the left and Nice to the right.

There will be relaxed minds, joyful hearts and full tummies
Other things to note
In case of unlikely bad weather conditions your money will be returned or tour will be rescheduled.
I can customize the time and food on your convenience.

I am Elena - traveler, nature & vintage lover, mother of three dragons, charmed by French food & lifestyle.

Following my inner voice, I decided to get out of the ordinary and I left a good life in Ireland. Sometimes we have to embrace big challenges in order to evolve. In my case, this mindset dropped me to live andante on Côte d’Azur. I felt it like a blessing and in order to give back, I decided to get fully immersed into a new life & share with you my love for vintage, food & wine in a classic French Citroën 2CV.

Experience does for the soul what education does for the brain!

My last day in Nice was reserved for an ultimate local experience, and it was had indeed. It was an afternoon among new-found friends with a cool ride plus the views! Oh, the views and the food!! Thanks for making Nice that much more memorable, Elena!

I had a truly magical experience with Elena. Not only was it amazing riding around in Madame, her Citroën 2CV and seeing beautiful views of the French Riviera, but the picnic was absolutely spectacular. No one else booked for the day so it was just Elena and I, and it was really cool learning about Elena’s life and exchanging stories. I also learned many things about traditional French picnic culture and I’m excited to take some of that knowledge with me back home. Elena’s attention to detail was amazing and everything was so well thought out and executed. On top of that, she is truly amazing at taking photos and got some really great ones of me throughout the day! This really was the highlight of my trip and if you are in the area I highly recommend it!

Elena was seriously so amazing! This picnic was our favorite part of the Nice trip. She went above and beyond to create the best experience possible for us. There is nothing quite like picnicking and learning about the French culture with great food and even better company. If I could give this experience a 10 star review, I would.

The experience was booked as a surprise anniversary gift for my husband. The afternoon was fabulous, being a passenger In madam was awesome, the drive up to the picnic spot idilic, and the food scrumptious. We were fully immersed in the french culture of eating. Elena was knowledgable on the foods and area I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something new.

Thé roadside picnic was delicious and the views were wonderful. A couple of games of pétanque added to the feeling of French culture.
