The history of Sweet Trip

The SWEET TRIP has been organized since 2013 by Ledorga every year during a spring weekend. The goal of this event is to quietly discover an area of France, at your own pace and calmly. During the weekend, no contest of elegance or games, just beautiful drive in the countryside on nice roads.

Culture is not neglected, and of course the tour is punctuated by stops to discover a village, a monument, a nice view of the area, a house or historic monument. Of course, the culinary specialties of the area of destination such as wines or cheeses are not forgotten.

The slogan of this weekend is: discover France quietly, drive in your classic car and enjoy the good times.
