Well, here we are, 2016 has arrived and our tours are ready to go!
The bookings for our first tour, starting on June 18th and travelling through Champagne, the Loire Valley, and into the Perigord, will close late March, still places left, hurry up & book.
We will be there at the villa near Lascaux Caves for a week – time to visit the chateaus involved in the Hundred Years War, the wonderful gardens, the pre-historic sites of Cro-Magnon man, the colourful markets, Josephine Baker’s fairy tale castle, the medieval town of Sarlat, with it’s honey-coloured stone buildings, or even take a canoe trip down the lazy Dordogne River. It is one of the most beautiful areas of France, which is why we visit nearly every year.
Our second and third tours, starting August 20th and September 3rd, still have places available and there is still time to decide to join us. We will be travelling through Normandy and Brittany, staying in some amazing places – a converted abbey, a B&B in the heart of Chartres, and a wonderful villa near Giverny, with an indoor swimming pool! A visit to Versailles en route to Chartres, should start the tour off well for you! Mont St Michel, that magic island, St Malo, the walled town destroyed in WWII and totally rebuilt, the Bayeux Tapestry, of course the Landing Beaches and the amazing artificial Mulberry Harbour, and lesser known places such as the family home of Christian Dior, perched on a cliff. While at the Villa a visit to Giverny, Monet’s home & garden, is a must, as is a visit to the Cathedral town of Rouen. So much to do!
