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
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!
