Summer Specials 2017


Several of our partners in France are feeling the ‘Trump Effect’ and so are offering special deals to Americans, AND OTHERS, to encourage travel to Europe.

 Cromey-loungeOur very good friends at Domaine de Cromey, near Beaune, have vacancies for their Burgundy House Party on 10 to 16 June.  Dennis is the perfect host and an exporter of wine to the USA, so has an insider knowledge of the Burgundy wine industry, while Ellie is a chef-extraordinaire.  A memorable food and wine experience is guaranteed, plus a relaxed exploration of Burgundy’s wonderful Cote d’Or.  The price for this week is slashed almost 10% to US$ 3100 per person.  Contact us now for their brochure and to reserve your room.

James and Diana of the Walking Party also want some extra feet on three of their unique walking tours – 

CATALUNYA – 29 April to 6 May 

TUSCANY – 18 to 25 June  

SAINT JAMES WAY – 9 to 16 September.  

Sitges, Catalunya

These are all gentle walks, suitable for anyone of average fitness, with a back-up vehicle and donkeys to carry the essentials.  
The all-inclusive fares are reduced to 2650, 2650 & 2425 Euros, respectively, plus they will waive the single supplement for solo travellers.   Catalunya starts in Barcelona and winds north into France up to the beautiful port of Collioure.   This tour easily combines with a barge cruise on the Canal du Midi.   
Tuscany includes transfers from Rome airport and could be combined with a cruise on the 20 passenger La Bella Vita from Venice to Mantua.  

St James Way follows the pilgrimage trail from Le Puy to Conques and includes transfers from Toulouse airport.  Contact us for a detailed itinerary and grab the last few places.
