ADAGIO - MORE THAN JUST WALKING!
Not only enjoying the stunning scenery and heritage sites of Guernsey, we’re also close enough to visit Sark and Herm for a day each. Having one of the best sunshine records in the British Isles plants from around the world thrive here. Each season brings its own speciality. You’ll have the chance to visit several public and private gardens, see wild flowers lining cliff paths and lanes and discover each of the Islands’ natural beauty.
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.

Beautifully preserved Renaissance towns dot the landscape. Besides the treasures of Assisi are the lesser known attractions of Spello, Spoleto and our base of Trevi.
Lake Como is the most romantic of the Italian pre-alpine lakes. Steep tree-clad hills, contrasting with the blue waters of the lake, and an essentially Mediterranean climate have made it a place of retreat for the Italian rich and famous in search of the exotic since Wordsworth’s day.
