“Register, breakfast and briefing. Meet your fellow Ververs. Check out the collection of cool cars. And listen to them purr as you set off from the capital. But remember, this is a rally not a race, as we cruise down to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle”
“Two night stay. Champagne is integral to many great celebrations, especially those of the luxurious kind. The Verve Rally route weaves into the historic French province of Champagne, evoking a legacy of medieval grandeur and illustrious sparkling wine. Relax. Settle in. Then our two course welcome dinner and Champagne reception continues the celebration. Day two is centers around relaxation and exploration of the city centre with a cellar tour. Our cars will be expertly transported from Reims to the secure carpark of our hotel in Nice with a specialist vehicle transport company catering to performance vehicles (fully insured).”
“Two night stay on the esplanade of the French Riviera. Immerse yourself in the old-world charm and see why the city always lives up to its glittering reputation; fabulous architecture, indulgent dining, sparkling blue seas, and an atmosphere of festivity.”
“No trip to the French Riviera is complete without visiting Monte Carlo. On our second evening in Nice we head to the glitter capital for an evening of sundowners over looking the Riviera followed by a delightful meal.”
“Now into Italy, driving beneath the rugged peaks of the Rhaetian Alps. Quaint villages scatter a landscape framed by rolling green hills and distant mountain vistas. Wind along the shoreline of Lake Como, Italy’s most sublime body of water providing an expansive place to drive and spend the evening. The lake’s enchantment provides a wonderfully tranquil contrast to the vibrancy of Lyon and Nice.”
“The Alps, a jagged spine of snow-dappled mountains for an inspiring day of driving. Ascend towards Switzerland and take the fabled Gotthard Pass, a route of serpentine twists and turns. With its cobbled plazas and lakeside promenades, Lucerne continues the alpine charm, a stunning little city set against the mountainous backdrop. Drive along the lakeshore, explore the medieval old town, and listen to the classical music that floats through the streets.”
“Frankfurt delights in its juxtapositions, hiding 2000 years of history beneath a futuristic facade. Glass-fronted skyscrapers reflect in the romance of the River Rhine while a cultural heritage is revealed in opera houses, museums, and fine dining restaurants. Driving from Switzerland takes you through Germany's most scenic region, a famous stretch of road through the Black Forest and a burst up the Autobahn. Relax and unwind in the hotel's two swimming pools, four saunas or perhaps choose from one of their spa treatments.”
“Bruges blurs the boundaries of the surreal. Park the car and follow a tangle of streets that reveal cobblestone, intrigue, and dozens of al fresco terraces that gaze upon the 12th-century market square. Churches rise above dreamy canals while medieval archways arouse the senses with Belgium's famous tastes: beer and chocolate. Bruges is the epitome of luxury lifestyle and soft adventure, an iconic spot for a final shared dinner and the Verve Rally Awards Ceremony.”
Verve Rally is all about celebration. Car and travel enthusiasts share an adventure holiday across the continent, taking in six countries over nine days by car.
Verve Rally is reshaping the traditional definitions of a car rally, blending luxury lifestyle with real adventure. This is not a race and it is not timed in any way. It’s a journey with likeminded people, a journey that celebrates driving and indulging in some of the continent's most atmospheric destinations.
The handcrafted route sweeps through forests and vineyards, before rolling through the charms of French Riviera and the drama of the Alps. Think a Lamborghini Gallardo winding along the Mediterranean coastline, a Ferrari 458 Italia traversing the Gotthard Pass, and an Aston Martin Vanquish elegantly approaching a medieval city.
With summer days and sultry evenings, the route provides an expressive space for the luxury car.
We’ve tailored it all to balance driving time with exploration. You’ll spend an average of four-five hours a day driving, cruising along the inspiring roads in convoy or at your own pace. Stop for lunch en route before arriving at the day’s destination by late afternoon. Luxurious four and five-star hotels and chateaux provide the serene space as soon as you’ve parked up. And with no nighttime driving, you can indulge in all the destination's flavours and experiences.
A unique six element approach embodies our philosophy of celebration. Every day is designed around a specific theme: Air for friendship and good vibes, Fire for the passion of summer, and Earth for fresh produce and a luxury car rally that’s completely carbon neutral. Of course there’s also Metal, recognising how luxury cars reflect a pursuit for perfection. Drive your own vehicle or take advantage of our partnership with a prestigious car hire company.
