MOT Home

Operated and managed exclusively by The Morris Minor Owners Club, Minors On Tour is the club's annual trip to Europe for our club members, taking around one hundred Minors and visiting classics abroad for a week of fun, friendship, and fundraising. For 2023, we will be returning to Largentiere in the Ardeche region of France, which is between 500-600 miles from the port depending on which route to France you take.

During our week away we get up to various activities including...


A small but beautiful commune in the Ardeche region in the south of France

Nestled at the southern end of the Ardeche region of France in an area that has been inhabited more than 12,000 years, Largentieres name refers to the silver mines in the area between the tenth and fifteenth centuries, when the silver-bearing lead ores in intrusive veins in the Largentières sandstone were exploited under the authority of the Counts of Toulouse and the Bishops of Viviers, whose title barons de Largentière was linked to the bishopric. The picturesque little medieval streets lined with ancient houses, its Renaissance Town Hall, the 13th-century Gothic church of Our Lady of the Apple Trees (Notre-Dame-des-Pommiers), and the Récollets gate, a relic of the old ramparts, are all architectural features to admire whilst taking a stroll. Formerly owned by the Bishops of Viviers, the castle was built in the 12th and 15th centuries and was previously used as a courthouse, prison and hospital. Nowadays, during the medieval entertainment in the summer, some of its rooms are open to visitors.
The site we have chosen is the delightful Domaine Les Ranchisses ( just north of the beautiful village of Largentiere. Right on the river for canoe hire down to Pont d’Arc and with heated swimming pools, Les Ranchisses previously welcomed MOT in 2015 and so they know how to look after us!

I get to pootle about in my minor with likeminded friends, confusing the locals with our funny cars, and enjoy entertaining evenings of conversation with friends who are like family. 😊

I love Minors on Tour because it is a very friendly social event from start to finish and a way of meeting other members of the club while seeing different countries .

Pat Buck

crazy stories, cheap wine and beer. Seeing how much you can cram into your Minor. That feeling of achievement when you make it home without breaking down.

Sue Jones
