My tours are linked to the cycle of the seasons and the meetings with the producers and craftsmen are according to the availability of my partners.

Accessibility

My tours are accessible to all: children, adults, seniors and people with handicapes*.

I don’t have seat belts in the back of my cars (vintage cars) so if you need a seat belt attachment or other hardware, it will be difficult. Let me know what you need.

*Please use my contact form to send me your needs and expectations. The wheelchair equipment does not fit in a 2CV, but the alternative is possible – with the Estafette (minivan).
