Itinerary

Saturday 4th August 

Our rendezvous will be in Folkestone at the Eurotunnel Flexiplus café where we will board our morning crossing to Calais. Upon arrival in Calais we begin the first 180 mile stint of the tour down to the beautiful Champagne region in France.  We will lunch half way to Champagne before arriving at the 5* Chateau de Fere. Dinner is included at the fabulous Chateau restaurant.

Sunday 5th August 

After a beautifully prepared French breakfast we warm the cars ready to begin the D-road drive down to the next hotel, the Hotel Le Cedre in Beaune, just west of Dijon. Before we begin the main part of our journey we will visit the old Circuit de Reims-Geux for a photo opportunity in front of the old pit buildings. Once again we will enjoy the gorgeous food on offer in our private dining room for dinner at the hotel this evening. 

Monday 6th August 

Today we cross the border into Switzerland to the stunning Hotel Belvedere in Grindelwald that looks directly at the famous Eiger mountain, our base for the next three nights. We will stop for lunch in Lausanne overlooking Lake Geneva before heading up into the Swiss mountains. Upon arrival at the hotel we will enjoy a welcome aperitif on the hotel balcony with fabulous views followed by a locally sourced Swiss dinner in the hotel restaurant.

Tuesday 7th August  

The tour continues with a short drive from the Hotel in Grindelwald to Lauterbrunnen. We will park the cars in Stechelberg and make our way up to Murren by cable car before a short walk to the Schilthorn cable car. We will head 2,970m above sea level where scenes from the Bond film ‘On her Majesties Secret Service’ were filmed. Lunch will be in the panoramic revolving restaurant and we will visit the ‘Bond World’museum at the top of the mountain. We can also enjoy the famous skyline walk located at the Birg cable car station.

If you would prefer to take a drive out to visit some beautiful parts of Switzerland, we have a route ready to go with a fabulous lunch stop should the trip up the mountain is not be your cup of tea. 

Dinner with wine is included at the hotel this evening.

Wednesday 8th August 

After breakfast, we head down to the car park to get the cars fired up ready for the drive to the Chedi Hotel in Andermatt. Our drive involves both the Grimsel Pass and the Furka Pass as we wind our way around these fantastic roads peaking at 2,426 metres above sea level. We will pass the Grand Hotel Glacier du Rhone which featured in the James Bond ‘Goldfinger’ film and drive through the famous town of Realp where we will attempt to recreate a scene of the film Goldfinger.

This evening you are free to enjoy the town of Andermatt or enjoy a lovely meal in the Hotel's stunning restaurant. 

Thursday 9th August  

Having enjoyed a very relaxing morning at the Chedi Hotel, we have arranged to board the newly built gondola to go up into the mountains in Andermatt. Our destination is one of the beautiful mountain restaurants for a typical Swiss lunch with stunning views. The rest of the afternoon is free for you to either enjoy the many hotel spa faciltiies or continue exploring the mountains. 

This evening we will have dinner in our private dining room in the hotel restaurant. 

Friday 10th August  

After breakfast we begin our journey back into France. On our way out of Andermatt we will stop at the Pilatus Aircraft Factory in Stans for a private tour which was another location for a number of scenes in ‘Goldfinger’. The route takes us on beautiful French D roads through the Ballons des Vosges Nature Park. 

This evening our finale dinner is included at the stunning Chateau d'Adomenil in Luneville. 

Saturday 11th August  

Today marks the end of the tour, however, the crossing is on a Flexiplus basis therefore you may choose the crossing that suits you best as well as the route you wish to take.

We have many hotel recommendations should you wish to break up the journey by taking an extra night in France on your way to Calais.
