If you want to experience France the way it used to be, there’s no better way than hitting the backroads with a rental car. The roads are usually smaller and have less cars on them which means you can really relax and enjoy yourself as opposed to driving in Los Angeles where I had about 37 near misses last week alone! You will enjoy every mile of the journey, but you will want to make sure that no matter what French wine region we’re in, there’s an old fashioned winery on our itinerary.
