Garage Hotel – Iconic Cars2019-08-22T17:55:42+01:00

There are places the address of which is well known across the world. The Hotel de France is obviously one of these places. It is located near the “Circuit des 24 heures du Mans”. It is indeed remarkably well situated near a touristic road, only a few miles away from the race track. Many pilots and mechanics chose the Hotel de France as an attractive stopping place. It is a mythical address that has become the symbol of car touring.

Years ago, the racing cars were not kept out of sight, they were simply parked in front of the hotel. People could stare at them when they moved away to get either on to the track or the road. The delights of motoring are willingly shared whenever the cars stop on a village square. Car lovers swarm readily around the cars for a chat with the pilots.


Car Touring is a concept that counts for GARAGE HOTEL. It is highly enjoyable to share the joys and emotions of touring. A few outstanding cars have been selected together with amazing itineraries.

Attractive stopping places are widely valued where the pleasures of touring mingle with those of meeting people crazy about cars.

Iconic cars

Nothing common places in our garage, few cars are parked but they are all outstanding, renowned, exceptional creations evoking a prestigious past. The most recent ones symbolize the spirit of gran tourism.

The car manufacturers have been practising their art for years. None of the cars they have constructed are standard. They have been produced by people who use modern technology together with ancient crafts and modern techniques enable simplicity and efficiency.

Original cars are left to auction sales and kept for museums. Our cars have been conceived to travel along roads and tracks. Still they can ensure security and pleasure in driving them. All of them keep a high market value being both exceptional and particularly beautiful. If ever the lucky owner of one of them should be willing to get rid of it.

We have decided in favour of the archetypal roadster: only two seats better for intimacy, a powerful engine and a manual gearbox for sportiness, good vibrations in each bend attractive qualities both in sound and sight.

The approval of our vehicles is studied on a case-by-case basis, in accordance with the regulation of each country. The official registration is the responsibility of the buyer.
