Activity Overview
1 visit of a medieval castle, or wine château
At the wheel of your cabriolet convertible, take a drive through the "Graves" countryside, Montesquieu's native region (world famous philosopher and politician). During this getaway, you can choose between a guided visit of the "Château de La Brède" - Montesquieu's home - and a wine-tasting visit of a Classified Great Growth Château.

Discover at your own pace the Graves wine region, dotted with family estates as well as with the most prestigious "Pessac-Léognan" names. You are guided but free to make stops or detours as and when you please. 

Our vehicles tell stories as they are equipped with a multimedia GPS tablet guide. More than mere vehicles, they offer an unparalleled tourism experience, for fun and interactive getaways.

Bring along some friends for an even more enjoyable driving experience: several moving vehicles can be linked together, so you remain in control of your own tour!
