Cartis, environmentally friendly

Tourisme responsable


By renting a classic vehicle, you are adopting an eco-responsible approach. Today, there are zero CO2 emissions involved in the construction of our vehicles. By repairing the vehicles instead of replacing them with new ones, we are choosing to increase the lifespan of our products.
Overall, the classic car industry accounts for and helps protect 20,000 skilled manual jobs in France. An integral part of the country’s industrial heritage, vintage vehicles are featured in thousands of events throughout the country, often bringing life to town centres and helping preserve age-old trades that pass down their expertise and passion from generation to generation.

You can explore each of our destinations at your own pace. When you drive a classic car, you have the opportunity to take in the local heritage in total leisure. Staying off the beaten track, our tours show you the picturesque villages of the Normandy countryside (such as Beaumont-en-Auge, Cambremer and Beuvron-en-Auge), the Vexin Français Natural Park (Chérence, Théméricourt, Maudétour and so forth) and the Loire Valley (including Chisseaux, Bracieux, Cheverny).

Tourisme solidaire


Cartis is a patron of the École Nationale Supérieure de Paysage (Versailles School of Landscape Architecture) in an effort towards the restoration of the King’s Vegetable Garden at the Palace of Versailles, as part of the Mon Potager (My Vegetable Garden) campaign. The King’s Vegetable Garden was built between 1678 and 1683 by Jean-Baptiste de la Quintinie, at the request of Louis XIV. Open to the public since 1991, it is the historic site of the École Nationale Supérieure de Paysage. Listed as an historical monument and a remarkable French-style garden, its gardeners uphold the art of pruning the plants and cultivate a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.

Since its creation, the King’s Vegetable Garden has pursued a threefold mission, namely to produce, to experiment and to transmit. Faced with the ageing tree population, the trees are replanted in conjunction with evolving cultivation practices, experimenting with new botanical combinations. These actions are carried out while maintaining a profound respect for the historic structures, which are being restored in successive stages, a major procedure, the likes of which have not been attempted for over one hundred years. In its concern for the preservation and development of France’s cultural and scenic heritage, the Cartis Classic Car Experience has made a commitment to the École Nationale Supérieure de Paysage with a view to totally restoring the King's Vegetable Garden.
