Our Specialist holidays include:

July update

We welcome the easing of travel restrictions and have been in touch with our friends in France and Spain who are waiting to greet visitors. They assure us that everything is getting back to normal and that your holiday experience will be exactly as you wish.

At the moment we are waiting for clarification on the logistics of movement which we believe will be assessed by mid-August.  Though our programme has been severely curtailed new bookings are now being taken ( WE DO NOT REQUIRE A DEPOSIT ) and we hope you will join us on one of our trips.

Wine Tours

Wine tour

Due to the Coronavirus we have had to reduce our wine tours to later in the year. Our wine tours are based in Spain and France. We have an 8-day visit to Ribera del Duero, Spain and and 9-day visit to Beaujolais & Macon in France .

Wildlife Tours


Our Wildlife programme for 2020 has necessarily been amended to cope with the adjustments to travel imposed by the various Governments. We have two remaining trips this Autumn, the first one will be to Asturias where we visit the Picos de Europa region and the second one will be to Castile & Leon. If you are interested in bird watching and cetaceans you’ll enjoy these short visits to Spain’s most scenic regions.

Panama Jazz Band

Jazz in Spain

Our visit to Brittany last year was intended to be our final jazz tour but the response was so positive,and we were turning travellers away , that we have decided to retrospectively rename that trip “Farewell Tour to France” and make another tour in 2020, this time “Farewell Tour to Spain”. Well, why not??

Accordingly we are going to return to the popular Hotel Mirador de la Franca in Asturias where we had our first Spanish jazz tour in the 90’s.

Hotel Mirador

Spanish Beach Breaks

This Province is undoubtedly one of the most scenic regions in all Spain. Golden beaches are backed by meadows and orchards, criss-crossed by tumbling streams and rivers which bring down fresh, clear waters from the mountain range behind the coast known as the Picos de Europa. Dairy farming and fishing are major industries resulting in superfresh produce at all times. Beach break in Asturias Spain. The 4* Hotel Mirador de la Franca is our base and we know you’ll be very comfortable here. The hotel sits on a secluded, sandy beach which gives out to the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
