A short relaxing break with interesting excursions, staying at the Parador at Aiguablava on the coast and the Parador at Vic-Sau in the foothills of the Pyrenees. These hotels combine two very different locations in ”Real Spain”.
After having to cancel groups in the Autumn of 2020 and February 2021 due to Covid19 we are very much hoping to be able to travel in September and October 2021 and are pleased to have booked accommodation at some of our favourite Paradors. Inevitably prices have risen this year but we have made every effort to keep them as low as possible.
On each holiday most dates are booked for Dinner, Bed & Breakfast with drinks included and on one night with a tapas supper, including drinks, as an alternative to dinner. Occasional nights are booked for B & B only as stated on the itineraries.
Extra nights can be booked before or after each holiday at Paradores or other hotels that we know and recommend. Various options are given at the end of the day to day itinerary below.
