Nothing in the world conjures up more romantic and beautiful images than the Mediterranean. Azure waters, white sands, mountain villages, and year-round sunshine combine to create a mood of tranquility and contentment that is truly irresistible. Beginning in Barcelona, we then cross the Spanish/French border, stopping at the ancient walled city of Carcassonne en route, and on into Provence, a region that intoxicates with its light and landscapes. From our base in Arles we explore the grandeur of the Roman Empire. Ancient hilltop villages beckon to be explored and a day in Avignon allows us to dance sur le pont! Our final stay is in elegant Nice, jewel of the Cote d’Azur, a city whose greatest charm is itself: the avenues, squares, markets, shops, and cafes that create an unforgettable buzz of sophistication and excitement.

Thanksgiving in Mallorca
November 16th-25th, 2018 | Maximum Group Size: 15 Participants | Availability: Open
This trip has been specifically designed to avoid the tourists and take in the culture of this multifaceted island! In November the weather is still warm, and the historical sites will be blessedly free of tour buses. Our base is the fabulous Gran Hotel in the historic town of Soller, set in the beautiful Tramontana Mountains. Soller is accessible to the capital, Palma, by a wonderful antique electric train that affords incredible views as it weaves up through the mountains and out the other side. We’ll celebrate Thanksgiving Mallorcan style with slow-roasted lamb at a very special restaurant up in the mountains. This year don’t spend all day in the kitchen. If you like your relatives, bring them along - if you don’t, leave them to it and join us for fun in the sun on an island paradise! Join our most popular tour guide, Gavin Miller, who will take us to many very special places on this beautiful island that he calls home.
