car and luxury coach hire

The secret to enjoying D'ORFEST is to be in a group with access to a car or coach.

For private summer festivals, we include the hire of a luxury coach with professional drivers, for the whole week to take the entire party on daily excursions to local markets, pretty villages and kayaking on the gorgeous local river Dronne and of course to enjoy the local restaurants, which are well known for being great value and delicious
