Classic car holiday in France

This annual historic race car rally came through the nearby town of Charroux on its way to the Circuit de Val de Vienne, as part of the course from Paris to Biarritz.

Citroen DS hire as a surprise birthday treat

We’re delighted to welcome visitors from Malta who are staying in La Grange and renting our Black Citroen DS23ie.

Our guests have taken advantage of our “midweek stay” offer that includes collection which on this occasion was from Poitiers SNCF station.

This was a complete surprise for the husband to celebrate his 50th birthday and ingeniously kept secret by his wife until their arrival. After a brief introduction to the car they took off for their first drive. It’s always such a delight to be able to offer this unique driving experience and to make such occasions so special.
