And its lakeside setting is truly magical, with the Alps of the Haute Savoie rising from the shores. Leisurely Alpine walks with spectacular views, lakeside castles and monasteries – a holiday to savour...

Loire – Châteaux, Vineyards & Walks
Exploring the charms of the western Loire - an Adagio holiday

Chinon is on the River Vienne, a few miles of gently meandering curves away from where it meets the Loire. Here are cream-coloured stone buildings, turrets, half-timbered façades and riverside promenades. This is the rich land of wine and food, of castles and kings, producing some of the Loire’s best wine.

Mediterranean Masterpieces
Superb walking and sightseeing in France and Spain
The land where the Pyrenées meet the azure waters of the Mediterranean is one of great beauty, colour and warmth. From Collioure there are wonderful walks in richly scented hills, and along the rocky coastline. Crossing the border into Spain, the pretty Catalan fishing village of El Port de la Selva, provides a great second base to explore the region.

Route St Jacques.
A continuous walk from Le Puy to Conques with transported baggage.
In the Middle Ages pilgrims walked in their thousands (and in great discomfort) from numerous points across Europe to congregate in Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain. We stay in rural hotels, and unlike the original pilgrims our baggage is sent on separately leaving us to carry a day sack.
